Hey,
Next week me and 3 friends are going traveling from Split to Amsterdam (Aged 19)
Here’s where we’re planning on going…

Depart Tues 1st Gatwick

Split, Croatia for 4 days (The Silver Central Hostel BOOKED)

Bled, Slovenia for 3 days

Budapest, Hungary for 2 days

Kraków, Poland for 2 days

Berlin, Germany for 3 days

Amsterdam, Netherlands for 4 days (Flying Pig Hostel BOOKED)

Arrive back Fri 18th East Mids

Any advice on places to stay/things to see would be much appreciated, also mainly i was wondering if this itinerary is too ambitious for the timespan we are traveling, if so we would probably leave out Budapest.
It would be great if you could share your experience on this with us Smile
Cheers,
Nick

While it looks like you’ve got enough time in most of these places, there’s a huge amount of travel time and some fairly complex routing involved here. How are you getting from place to place?

Split to Bled is 10 hours on the train plus a fair hike or a short bus ride. Bled to Budapest is 8 hours. Budapest to Krakow is 10.

I would not leave out Budapest, it is a beautiful city with a lot of sightseeing and character! I would spend more time there.

Cut down days in Bled and add days in Budapest. Also, you will most probably want to use the direct night train from BUD to KRK, so you can probably subtract that night.

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.
