7 cities in 17 days

A community itinerary from Rebecca

With an Interrail Global Pass you can choose to travel in up to 33 European countries, tailor-making your own itinerary, even as you travel. Our Interrail community have shared many photos, maps and itineraries over the years, and we love to see where the Pass has taken you. 

 

This itinerary was sent to us by Rebecca, who travelled from Sweden to embark on an eastern European adventure. Her route took her to 7 cities in 17 days, where she soaked up eastern Europe's rich history whilst exploring castles, museums and palaces. Rebecca’s photos are a perfect starting place for inspiration as you plan your next trip. 

 

We've also added some travel tips to send you on your way.

2_Krakow_Wawel Castle

Kraków 

From the Royal Castle on Wawel Hill that continues to convey the full might of Poland's historic monarchy, to the Main Square in the Old Town, Kraków symbolises the wealth and authority that the city has boasted since medieval times.

Warsaw

2 hours and 20 minutes from Kraków is the Palace of Culture (Pałac Kultury i Nauki), home to theatres, an observation deck, museums and trendy pubs. It’s the tallest building in Warsaw, and was built on the initiative of Stalin as a “gift of the Soviet people for the Poles”.

4_Berlin_Reichstag

Berlin

Berlin is the capital of Germany and a one-stop melting pot of culture, entertainment and history. Imposing buildings and monuments are scattered throughout the city, serving as a stark reminder of its turbulent history. The Berlin Wall once divided East from West Germany, and since it crumbled in 1989 the city has become the gateway connecting eastern and western Europe. 

 

Berlin's most famous landmark is the Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor), once a symbol of a divided nation and now a symbol of unity and peace. You should also visit the rebuilt Reichstag, the Checkpoint Charlie Museum, the fully restored Berlin Cathedral (Berliner Dom) and the Berlin Wall Museum.

Prague

Charles Bridge is a tourist attraction in its own right and the oldest bridge in Prague. It spans an impressive 516 metres across the Vltava river and boasts 30 sculptures of saints on the balustrade. You can touch the statue of St. John of Nepomuk to bring you good fortune. Don’t forget to visit the Old Town Square to view the Astronomical Clock and find somewhere that sells trdelník - a traditional Slovak pastry that originates from the Hungarian-speaking region of Transylvania.

Vienna

Within 4 hours and 5 minutes, you’ll arrive in Vienna – the capital of music, sachertorte (chocolate sponge cake with apricot filling) and insanely impressive buildings. You’re spoilt for choice with all the palaces, gardens, museums and the State Opera House (the opera is optional, sampling the cakes is not). The city is packed full of history and each building has its own unique story, so give yourself plenty of time to explore.

Bratislava

With its compact old town, charming city streets, and outdoor café culture, Bratislava is well worth a visit. Be sure to check out the castle that proudly dominates the hillside next to the old town – you can’t miss it. From here, you can walk through the grounds for free and admire the view of the colourful city below.

 

Whilst you’re in town, sample the creamy garlic soup (Krémová cesnaková polievka) served inside a giant bread roll or potato dumplings with smoked meat (Zemiakové knedličky s údeným mäsom).
