Travelling by auto in Slovakia in May

Jump to last reply

Hello out there! I would like to know what the best route is from the Vienna, Austria area to Propad, Slovakia. If it is also possible to travel from Vienna through Budapest and then up to Propad. I would like to know if the roads are safe in the moutainous areas or if we should just go through Bratislava to Propad. I am going to visit the village of my grandmother who came from a small village near Propad (Hranovnica) and left in 1914, but I would also like to see the grandeur of Budapest. We have relatives near Vienna on my husband's side, so that will be our basecamp. We will be coming from Holland, since my husband is Dutch. We also would like to visit Krakow, Poland.

Also, I would like to know if anyone has ever hired a genealogical researcher to meet them in the village of their relative in Slovakia

Lots of things to work with! Just hoping for some answers. Thanks. .
