We're looking into a 3-city trip next October starting in Budapest, then Krakow, then Prague. As we only have 12 days (including travel days), taking the night train to/from Krakow seems like a good idea. My question is - since these trains depart/arrive so late/early, what do you do with your luggage before you are able to check into you hotel (or after you check out)?
Will it be too wearing/tiresome to take 2 night train trips during a 4-day stretch? We're mid-40's in decent shape and have travelled quite a bit but don't want to wear ourselves down without a good night's sleep. I'm thinking 2 night trains might be too much.
Finally, if we were to take one of these trips during the day, which is the more scenic/efficient between the Budapest-Krakow and Krakow-Prague day-time train legs?
