been to prague tallinn, any suggestions for where next?

Adore prague going again in july, just come back from Tallinn was extremly cold much smaller than prague, but lovely in the old city, Need advice on where to go next. Love the historical part of prague and the restaurants also the fact that everything is reasonably priced. Travelling on low cost flights from uk, would like to try one of the fromer ugoslavic countries, slovenia, croatia, slovakia but don't know enough to choose between them. Is any one better value than any other? sally

Try Riga, went there last year with a cruise ship for a day loved it so have booked for 5 days this June, Stockholm is also a good choice with a picturesque old town but the hotels can be a bit pricey. We're also visiting Wroclaw which again is said to be lovely and with Ryanair flights and cheap hotels, $80 a night at the Radisson, looks to me like an ideal post Prague and Tallinn destination. We have also visited Tallinn 3 times and we're off on our return trip to Prague on Thursday for easter and loved both of them.

Ljubljana is the best capital in Central Europe. A castle on a hill like in Prague, monumental bridges and as it is southern europe the food and wine are superb. The mountain scenary around makes a great trip (Lake Bled and Kranske Gory)

Try also Bratislava - worth visiting for a weekend and you can now fly there direct from Stansted. Riga and Krakow are also good

If you want to venture away from prague try konopiste castle, which can be reached by train from hlavni nadrazi station to benesov ( nice little town ) from there you can walk approx 2km ( its a pleasant walk ) to bottom of the hill at konopiste where you can catch a mini train up to the castle, kutna hora is also worth visiting beautiful cathedral, a silver mine which you can go down, dont miss the stone house museum does"nt look to impressive from the outside but it is well worth going in, also just to the north of kutna hora on the way back to the train station is sedlec ossuary with its strange interior decorations of chandiliers, bells and urns all made from human bones! trains to kutna hora from hlavni nadrazi, from kutna hora station take local bus into town, or you can go by bus from florenc station (prague) train and buses are very cheap. Karlstein castle is a good place to visit trains from smichovske nadrazi to karlstein, come out of station turn right, left at road end over bridge turn right and you will see the main street leading up to the castle, either walk up or go by horse and carriage, dont be affraid to try the local restaurants and bars out of prague not all speak english but you will get by, and you will find them much cheaper than in prague, if your into recent history try going to lidice, bus from praha dejvice it was raised to the ground during the 2nd world war, but has been rebuilt, there is a memorial museum with small cinema which shows the attrocities that took place there, nice park to walk through into rebuilt village ( very good restaurant next to the church in village ). The other war related day out is to terezin, bus from florenc station, huge concentration camp, with museum, go past camp on bus into town and go to tourist info shop first it is signposted, if you come out of shop and turn right, walk maybe 200yds you will see a local czech cafe, we had 2 drinks, soup, 2 bowls of goulash and the bill was 3pounds! these are just a few of the places we have enjoyed while in czech rep hope they are some help to you, cya.

I would recommend Dubrovnik, I went for the first time last summer and it's absolutely wonderful. The people are lovely, it's reasonably priced, the most beautiful beaches, lots of little coves for a bit of privacy. There is also a very touching memorial to those who lost their lives during the war and if you're feeling energetic (would not recommend it midday in the summer!) definately walk around the walls, it cost about ��2 and you'll get some of the best photo opportunities! and some marketing genious has started selling bottled water from their back door!

we were back packing so just turned up at the port and got accommodation from one of the many people offering it there, we did this several times in Croatia and found it to be a really good way to get reasonable accommodation. big hotels are popping up now and it's getting a bit pricier so get in quick! Be careful you don't get ripped off and make sure you determine how far the property is from the port before you set off, most people will take you there before taking money from you, it is safe it's just how things are done there.

Dubrovnik is a really nice get away as there is plenty of different things to do, the old town is lovely to wander round, very pretty but can be done in a day, take a boat trip to the green island (can't remember what it's called) wow!
