I would think that 3 days each would be fine for what you want to do in Prague and Vienna as many of the sites you mention are within walking distance of each other. As for Budapest, I really can't say because I have yet to have the pleasure.

Hi,

I'm going to Prague at the end of the month and I was suggested to visit Kutna Hora - it is a half day trip.I think you'll do it too;)

Hi,
I just got back from a winter vacation to Prague,Vienna and Budapest in exactly the same time.I think 3 days each is good enough.But you have to take into account that unlike me, you are travelling during peak tourist season so there might be long queues at most of the places.We had 4 days in Vienna because we did a day trip to Bratislava.I was not very impressed with Bratislava and cut short the trip to just a few hours.but if you want to tick off one more country on your list,you should go:)

Regarding the train tickets, We bought individual tickets and got great deals on all of them.Post a separate question for the individual legs of your journey and you'll get very useful tips from VT members.Feel free to ask if you have any doubts.

Happy Travels

oh I forgot to mention, you should not miss a chance to go the opera in Vienna or Budapest.You can get the standing tickets really cheap the day of the show:)

Re: Budapest > Vienna > Prague

by lanerunner

sure do it

of course you can stay longer but three is ok
if youre a good walker you will be fine
we even went to cesky krumlov for the day from prague - from 630am to about 730pm on the train- brilliant!

we did the hop on/off bus in vienna
but we also went up to kahlenburg up through grinzig to the woodlands/ outskirts of vienna - now that was nice!
havent been to budapest

Re: Budapest > Vienna > Prague

Very reasonable that you can visit all of these places in 9 days. For Prague, you can visit many more fascinating places than those listed in 3 days. Most of them can be reached in a few minutes by subway and tram system. See my Prague page for some good suggestions.

Buy individual train tickets instead of a pass. Consider taking the student agency bus from Vienna to Prague.

Enjoy your visit my friend.

Couple more things about Prague. Visit Prague castle as late in the day as tour times permit. The large tour groups swamp the castle earlier in the day. Walk across Karluv most ( Charles Bridge ) before 0700 in the morning and also around sunset. Much less crowded and more enjoyable. Do visit Vysehrad, which is the oldest part of Prague.

Do buy a 3 day pass for unlimited public transport use. It is a bargain and highly essential for a great Prague experience. Do eat and drink where the locals do and not where the tourists do.

Travel Tips for Prague

First of all you should visit...

by vysnaite

First of all you should visit Prague in all the seasons, it's beautiful in summer, amazing in spring and autumn and chraming in winter. It also differs greatly in the early morning, day time and evening. So move your butt, not just sit and drink beer! :) My favourite spots there- Chrales bridge (one statue is magic and has it's legend, make a wish there:)), watch the water and beautiful old buildings. the clock, the square at it and when you walk there in the evening esp in winter, the lightening makes you feel like in a fairy tale, seems that in those towers there lives the man from Notherdam :). St.Vitae Cathedral, Golden Street. monte e mare of those memories.. :) somewhy I remember my first visit there, in winter, when we were with a friend in a hotel room almost reaching sky, we've just arrived, we turned off the light in the room, completely opened the curtains, were sitting on the table, eating yougurt with bisquits and enjoying the splendind view of snowy Prague at night from above:) Another - New Years evening, plenty of people in the center, us, about 15 crazy people, trying to get through on a Chrales Bridge till the midnight, it was impossible to get through the crowd without loosing each other, so had to take hands and drag each other :) sometimes this chained stucked, so front was pulling the back ;) lol reasons for stopping: a)too many ppl b) some italian saw that your hands are ocupied and starts kissing you! (hm..hm.. hope my bf isn't reading this :)) but friends help you out from it :) lol plenty of memories, too many to name :)

The Prague Castle sits atop a...

by Packerman

The Prague Castle sits atop a hill to the west of Charles Bridge. You can see the castle from the bridge and even farther away. The view of Prague from the hill where the castle sits is extraordinary. There are many interesting sights located inside these gates pictured here. Prague is a beautiful city with a variety of interesting sights. We really enjoyed our walk beginning at the Powder Tower then to the main square where the cool clock tower is, then past all the shops and across the Charles Bridge, and then to the fabulous St. Nicholas church (the best in Europe) and then the walk uphill to the castle and St. Vitus cathedreal, and finally to the Loretta.

Bludgeoning Sculpture

by zrim

Ignac Platzer's Battling Titans adorns the front gate of the Prague Castle. I imagine the message to visiting dignitaries was along the lines of: "Watch your manners or we will stomp you into the ground too." There is some truth behind my guesswork--the Czech ruling class has had a long and honored tradition of throwing people with contrary opinions out of windows and off of bridges.

"The bone church"

by Tallchick80

It took me 3 days to finally get to Ossuary to see the famed bones of Kostnice, and lemme tell you, it was well worth it! You leave with a reminder of how precious life really is.

Be careful though at the train station! They are NOT friendly and don't care where you are going, where you'll end up, or who you are. I ended up getting stranded in a random Czech town with about 20 other people after we all were misinformed by the staff at the Kutna Hora train station. I almost missed my train back to Germany!

view from lower deck of Petrin Hill tower.

by hundwalder

From the vantage point of the Petrin Hill tower is shown kostel sv Vavrince and the chapel of the tomb of Christ. Both were completed during the high baroque period, which their architecture attests to. Also shown is part of the winding 650 year old hladova zed ( hunger wall ). This was the city defense which is now totally surrounded and complimented by masterfully landscaped and very well kept green belt.

This now pleasant and relaxing part of central Praha is where those accused of witchcraft and others who challenged the policies and doctrines of the mother church ( such as Jan Hus ) were burned at the stake back in the days of religious intolerance and superstition. Contrary to popular opinion, Hus was not executed in old town sqaure at the location where his monument now stands.

Red tile roofs like those covering the church and chapel are the roofs of choice throughout this region of Europe. They will add nice color to your photos of the region.
