Where would you go if you had 6 weeks to spent in Eastern Europe.

If this is a voluntary trip I would go no farther East than BudaPest and Prague.
You can do London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Prague and Vienna.

London, Paris, Rome and Vienna are not in Eastern Europe. Nor is Berlin. Fool.

I'd probably include Romania and Bulgaria, simply because I haven't been there yet.
But Krakow would be a must, and this time I'd like to add some of the countryside of Poland. Ljubjana and Lake Bled in Slovenia would be wonderful return visits.

RE: OY

Why would you call somebody a fool for not knowing geography? Are you a bitter old man or did somebody abuse you as a child? Sad, real sad!

Poland would be one of my first choices. Krakow is wonderful as well as Zakopane in the Tetra mountains. As far as country side goes the castles in poland are great to visit and stay in such as Krasizyn castle near Przemysl (pronounced shem-ish)and Lancut castle.

Beacuse this is very basic geography - dissecting Europe into East and West. Would you not be surprised if you met someone who thought NYC was on the west coast?

Gee, Oy, you must have been looking at a map.

It would behoove you to actually *read* what I wrote.

Oy had to go on

Actually, there are Western Europe, Middle Europe and Eastern Europe, although the countries of Middle Europe have been calling themselves Non-Eastern Europe lately.

Which are the countries of Middle Europe, Oy?

The poster asked where to go in Eastern Europe. You mention two places in Eastern Europe and five places in Western Europe. If you were trying to say Western Europe is better than Eastern Europe (for whatever reason you feel like that) why not write that. If you use words like "behoove" it is no wonder people misinterpret what you are trying to say.

That, dear colleague, is why we have dictionaries.

RE: OY

Why raise your blood pressure over such small stuff? Life is too short to
get upset over every silly little isue that comes along. To change the subject - what do you like about Eastern Europe?

What I like best is that you do not find many Americans travelling to Eastern Europe

Maybe the Americans should stay and home one year and teach the europeans to appreciate our dollars. I'd think Americans make up at least 30 to 40% of the total number of tourists in Europe?

The number of American tourists in Eastern Europe is less than 5% of the tourists.

Oh man, I have to give it to Oy. The simple question asked by the original poster was very specific as Oy pointed out. How did this thread get so screwed up?

As many as five people?

To wonder, oy, and friends: Oh dear oh dear. Peace be with you.

To Serious: You had some good ideas before it all went haywire. What I would do does not neccessarily (spelling ?) bear on what you would do. You may be into lakes (Mazuria, Poland), forests and mountains (Tatras of Poland and Slovakia, Carpathians of Romania and Ukraine), swinging night life (Krakow, Prague, Budapest, the southern shore of Lake Balaton in summer, Belgrade, Cluj Napoca, and people say Veliko Turnovo), or art nouveau (Prague and Ljubljana). But for Gothic I say Gyor, Cesky Krumlov, Prague, Krakow, Sopron, Veszprem, and Sighisoara. For Baroque Central Poznan, Wroclaw, Krakow, Ceske Budejovice and surrounding towns and villages, Kosice, the Spiz towns, Budapest, Novi Sad, and Sibiu. For nineteenth century baroque enthusiasm Prague, Budapest, Szeged, Vrsac, and Cluj Napoca.

Please write if I can help further.

Well said Ben,
Let's hope that this thread can get back to the original question.
Regards
Maggie.
