We are a group of 5 tourists traveling to Central Europe next Spring. Due to time constraints we decided to exclude Prague from the tour,
We'll reach Flughafen Airport on 23/5/14 around 1:45 pm, we intend to move directly to Budapest and spend 3 days there, then move to Krakow and spend 2 days, then return to Vienna to spend 6 days (one day will be allocated for an excursion from Wien to Bratislava). We have the following concerns regarding transportation means between the proposed cities:
1- From Flughafen airport to Budapest, is it better to use train or car taxi? Any info regarding the price of each option?
2- Budapest- Krakow and Krakow -Wien, they should be taken by train, are night trains available for both trips?
3- What is the rate of sleeping couchettes, and is it better to purchase the tickets once we arrive to Budapest or Kraków?
4- does the train to krakow starts from Keleti train station?
5- is there a train from Krakow to Bratislava, or is it better to reach Vienna and then make the 1-day excursion to Bratislava?
6- Where does the train coming from Glówny stop in Wien?
What's your opinion about our setting? Is it advisable or does anybody have a different proposal?
