Need 2B in Serbia Dec. 08/Where 2go Jan 1-10 afterwards? 1st time E. europe
First time in E. Europe - will be going to Serbia - ending up in Novi Sad Dec. 31. From Jan. 1-10 I can travel where ever - & feel like kid in candy shop, as I've never been to E. Europe, and everything seems close. Since I will have only 9 days - I want to try to get to nearby cities, and also not break the bank.
Have been told by a Serbian friend - Budapest, Vienna, Prague. Is this too much to do in essentially 9 days?
Train seems on average 3 hours between cities. Some up to 8 hours if stops. Looks like average cost for train is $100 US. Flights can be low - $50US but taxes are over $100(!).
I can really go anywhere - didn't know what would be best in January. Have been to Switzerland ages ago, but never Austria. Have been told Vienna is "so so?" It's a pity this isn't the summer, but I have no choice as
to time period.
Thank you so much!
