Prague, Krakow, Tatras, Budapest advice

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Berlin, Prague, High Tatras, and Budapest. Here is our current "rough" itinerary (these times take into account travel time - i.e. these are total time in each location, travel time is extra):

Berlin - 3 1/2 - 4 days
Prague - 4 full days
High Tatras (staying in Strbske Pleso) - 3 - 4 full days depending on which train we take to/ from theTatras
Budapest - 4 full days

Our flight is reserved into Berlin, and out of Budapest, so the order is set. The part that we are uncertain about is whether or not to make a quick detour to Krakow for 2 days in order to see Auschwitz and Krakow's main sights, taking the night train from Prague to Krakow, and then taking a private shuttle from Krakow to the High Tatras at the end of day 2. This will cut into our time in Budapest, leaving us 3 full days instead of 4.

We would like advice about which itinerary you would recommend - the above, or the one which adds the trip to Krakow, and shortens the stay in Budapest from 4 to 3 full days. If we do not go to Krakow, we would visit the Terezin concentration camp instead of Auschwitz, as a day trip from Prague. We plan to do some day hikes in the High Tatras (does anyone have any recommendations for which trail/ routes to take, and/ or whether you recommend hiring a guide?), and perhaps rent a car for one day to visit some of the area sights (i.e. Spissky Hrad) en route to Budapest (we plan to pick up a van shuttle or train in Kosice). As the trip to Krakow would mean taking the overnight train from Prague, we are also wondering how comfortable the private 2-berth sleeping compartments are on this train, and whether we can expect to get much sleep (I believe the train departs Prague at around 9:15 PM, arriving Krakow at 7 AM). If we don't go to Krakow, we have also considered taking the overnight train from Prague - Strbske Pleso (leaving Prague around midnight, arriving around 9 AM). Are these two overnight trains/ trips similar?

Thank you for any advice, recommendations, or comments that you might have!
