Me and my girlfriend are staying with my family in Czech for about 26 days. We would like to take a mini side trip to somewhere (awesome) in Europe but were on a students budget.

Does anyone have any low cost solutions? I think the biggest thing is tranportation we can get to Prague using family, but in the destination we will be counting every penny we have.

I dont expect anyone to plan out a trip for me but any feedback is appriciated!

Thanks,

Mike k

What is the exact location you will be staying? And how much are you willing to spend on travelling?

Practically, you can visit the whole central Europe cheaply, as you are planning to stay awhile and can use the advantage of cheap advance-sale of tickets.

I will give you a few tips, but tell me what are you into: architecture, natural sceneries, nightlife, other?

If you have any questions about Prague or Czech and Slovak republics, ask me.
If you only want to search train or bus connection within Czech&Slovakia and/or to neighboring countries, use www.cp.sk or www.idos.cz search engines. For domestic transport, they also show prices.

Hey papyr,

I will be staying from Aug 12 – Sept 6th. Would like to leave for the mini vaccay around Aug 21, for about 4-5 nights. I will be staying in Melnik, 40 minutes away from Prague, tranportation there and back isn’t a problem. Its in the destination country that I would need to start dishing out cash. Combined for two people we are looking at 500$-700$ for 2 people — already spent 2500 on tickets just getting to Czech.

Thanks, again.

Mike Kay

Hi Mikekay, First of all,it is very necessary to know that,At what destination,you want to stay? and How much your budget? and How many days you want to stay there? In my opinion,you should go with tours and travels companies,they will allow you cheapest and attractful packages.

You could try it……….

Hi there,

I was thinking that myself just now. I think the location depends on the ages or interests of the girls. Of those above, I would prefer one of the two in the St. Germain area. I may be very wrong, but I don’t think of having as much activity after dark ( I don’t mean clubbing—just lots of open restaurants, people walking around, etc.). Though if that killer view of the ET is going to be important to you both, go for one of the apts in the 7th.

Have a great time.
Jacob
