You may want to end your day embracing Polish social traditions in one of Krakow's many cellar restaurants and pubs. Dive into the thriving social scene over a few vodkas in one of these cheerful establishments, Zubrowka (Bison Grass Vodka) is a must!
Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum Visit
Opt to visit Rynek Główny - Europe's largest medieval market square; savour a traditional Polish breakfast (kielbasa, yum), or sit back with a coffee and a slice of Poland's famous cheesecake (sernik babci) at one of the many cafes in the area. Then, walk it off with a stroll uphill to marvel at the impressive Wawel Royal Castle.
If you're in the area and want to experience traditional Czech pubs, which are guaranteed to be loud, lively, and packed with locals on any night of the week, this is the place to find restaurants serving traditional Czech cuisine such as fried pork cutlets, goulash, and dumplings.
Enjoy all Prague has to offer. Opt to visit the famous Charles Bridge, the clock tower in the main square or a traditional Czech beer hall with serious helpings of meat and potatoes.
Travel to Český Krumlov. Spend time wandering the small city, visiting the castle or choose to spend an afternoon rafting on the Vltava River.
Private Vehicle (2.00-3.00 hours)
Opt to have lunch in one of the many pretty restaurants offering fantastic local cuisine, sitting on a terrace overlooking this fairytale medieval town.

With the Danube River dividing old town, Buda, from the newer area, Pest, there is plenty to see and do.

well organised, unbelievably smooth. friends ask us what the highlight of the trip was, but we find this difficult to answer as it was all interesting. Considering this was the first of this tour, it all went very well with no unpleasant experiences.I was expecting some difficulties in travelling in these countries but there were none- it was seemless, and this was probably due to the excellent tour leader and the initial organisation of the trip.Overall Rating
This was my first experience with group travel and I certainly will be doing it again. The trip was planned to perfection, with enough free time to explore on my own, but with the convenience of the tour leader making all the travel and hotel arrangements. I also was impressed with the urban/rural mix---the time spent away from the big cities was wonderful and allowed for some fresh air and exercise before tackling another history filled city.Overall Rating
The tour offered a great variety of locations both big cities and small towns and good attractions and activities too.Overall Rating
