Backpacking Eastern Europe is now a firm favourite on the backpacker itinerary.In fact, some of the best cities in Eastern Europe such as Prague and Krakow are no longer quite the bargain they once were.Meet Russian ladies, Russian girls, or even find a Russian Wife.
But on the flip side, this means that things such as transport, accommodation (don’t forget to check out Hostel Bookers Awards for Excellence 2013 to find the best hostels in Europe) and entertainment have all improved in recent years and are totally geared up for backpackers. Plenty of budget airlines service the capital cities in Eastern Europe.
After the flight, you can explore the best of Eastern Europe by train.
It’s the outdoorsy atmosphere of the Old Town you should be soaking up here, with less emphasis placed on large attractions, although Ljubljana does boast some great galleries and museums.
There is a grand mix of bridges, Baroque townhouses and churches in Prešernov trg, but even the modern government complex on the left bank around Kongresni trg compliments the historical cityscape.
Backpacking in Europe is a rite of passage for most students and travellers.
