Road Trip to Central/Eastern Europe - Questions

Jump to last reply

Doing some long range planning for a 40 day road trip through central/eastern Europe. We have done similar road trips to the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy and Greece. While we enjoy the major cities, we also like to travel through the countryside, stopping whenever we want. We would be leasing a new car as they provide complete insurance coverage and roadside assistance for all of the countries we would be visiting. This would likely include Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.

For those who have driven or drive in these countries, are there any specific problems, rules or other things to be aware of? Any horror stories that might dissuade us from doing so? How good are GPS systems in these countries?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
