3 week trip


The general travel arrangements haev been made for our europre trip... 3 weeks, early summer, 1 family (2 adults, 2 teens). we will be flying to Austria, then driving to Hungary to visit family in szombathely, doing some touring around hungary for a week... But then we have 2 weeks to spend... Our return flight is back in Vienna again.

Can anyone recomend a set of places, attractions to see in that General section of Europe for our remaining time, based on our group? By general area, I mean we probably don't want to go over to England, Spain, Portugal, France... anything that far west.

The kids are not ones that would enjoy touring to see all the churches, and taking museum tours all day (and neither are we, honestly). So, where would you guys recomend going to... ?

Thanks in advance!

Prague (Praha) is about 300 miles from Bpest, and you can drive through Bratislava on the way. Or you can head East through Eger to Western Romania via the Hortobagy Nat Park.

hmm.. romania eh? Interesting. Now, I'm not putting it down, but rather just trying to find out: Is there enough to do in Romania for 2 weeks? or so, and if not, Which area would our next trip be to?

(this is not to rule out any other suggestions from others, I'd still be intrested in hearing others... Remember that for most of the first week, I'll be in WESTERN Hungary... Maybe only a couple days in Budapest)

Thanks so much so far!
