2 1/2 weeks in Eastern Europe

I will be traveling to Eastern Europe in late may. I have been to Hungary and Czech Republic. I will have two and a half weeks to travel. I have heard great things about Krakow and I would really like to spend some time in Romania. I am more interested in architecture and history then art and museum. I would also like to experience local culture. Please any info you might have would be great. I have read old post already. Thanks

Eastern Europe, December 2008-January 2009

Hi everyone! I’m planning a solo backpacking trip (my first!) for this December/January. I got a great deal on a flight to Poland so that’s my starting point. I need some pointers on where to go/avoid and also some ideas on how over-crowded my current itinerary is looking. Help?

The dates in question are 10 December 2008 – 25 January 2009 (42 days). I need to be back in Aberdeen, Scotland for the 26th as I have classes, so I need to end up somewhere on the 25th with direct air connections to Edinburgh or Glasgow.

Right now I have:

10/12 thru 11/12 – Wroclaw, Poland

Train fares around Eastern Europe

Hi, I am looking into traveling around eastern europe for around 1month later this summer. I plan on visiting Romania, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Czech Republic and Poland before making way to Amsterdam. I have looked into the interrail pass which costs either £180 for 22 days or £300 for 1month of travel. I was wondering if anyone has traveled in these countries before and knows the cost of local trains. Would it be cheaper to buy this pass or to pay each individual fare? i have also found a coach from Bucharest to Amsterdam for £60.

Thanks for any help…
