Budapest and Prague

by bjk49 »

Heading to this area of Europe for the first time.  Any recommendations for the lenght of time we should plan to stay in these two cities? We are not big on night life, but love cultural and historical sites

We spent 3-1/2 days in Prague a few years ago.  We did not run out of interesting things to see and do.  The "castle" alone took pretty much one day.  It is like a small city all its own.  There were several sights of interest that we could not fit end, but we were able to visit/see most of what are generally condsidered the most important sights--the Michelin 3-star sights--plus some 2-star sights. And we had some nice just poking around time.  I think 4 full days would have been better, but 3-1/2 was OK.

I spent 2 weeks in Budapest, mornings were work so only half days exploring but there was plenty to see and do. Prague has developed something of a reputation as a destination for partying at weekends with groups of young men arriving on Ryanair for booze filled days and nights. If at all posible see Prague during the week and visit Budapest at the weekend!

Three to four nights in each is perfect - gives you enough time to explore everything the cities have to offer, whilst allowing for time to revisit places you loved.

We spent 3 nights in Prague and could have spent longer. We spent most of one day in the castle, then another day in old town, and went a bit out of town for the "other" castle, the Vyserhad, which afforded views of some of the oldest structures in the area, and has a lovely medeival church in a park like setting on the river. We also enjoyed taking the funicular up Petrin Hill for dinner and a view.
