    If you like Switzerland, google Slovenia mountains. It might be cheaper than Switzerland, though they probably speak less English, if that matters.

    You can’t go wrong with Italy. And as a resident of Prague, I only have good things to say!!! But obviously I’m biased!

    @Cyri:  Food in Prague can be tricky or easy, depending on how picky you are. If you are a vegetarian, the only great place I know of is Radost.

    If you like eating local food, you won’t have any trouble– just go to any local hospoda. If you eat meat, try the gulas and the Svickova.

    If you need salads, etc, you will have trouble (thought it’s not impossible). Also if you like salads AND are on a budget. he he

    Prague is easy to see in just a few days. You will do the Castle, Old Town, Bridge walking route. Jewish quarter is another day– there’s a beautiful cemetery and synogogue/museum.

    What season are you traveling in?

    @Cyri:  People said the food was great? Hmmmm. That’s not usually what you hear about Prague. Not to say there isn’t any, but it’s usually the beer that gets the compliments. πŸ˜€ PM me closer to your travel dates and I’ll give you some places to check out. πŸ˜€

    @Cyri:  The view from the London Eye in spectacular, definitely worth a visit! There is also the Tate Modern just a little walk down the river from there, that has free exhibits, and also the London Aquarium makes for a good day out (right next to the London Eye), sometimes you can get a deal on tickets to see both attractions together. I didn’t actually know you have to pay to go to Westminister Abbey or St Pauls! I haven’t been since I was a kid but I remember they are both beautiful, particularly St Paul’s, so if you have to pick between the two I’d go for the latter πŸ™‚

    @Cyri:  You need to go to Slovenia, its got the most absolutely stunning scenery and as its so small all the main things can be seen relatively quickly. Check out Lake Bled, its capital ljubljana, lake bohinj, the soca valley and Postojna Caves among other places. Its also got Italy to its west, Austria to its North, Hungary to its east and Croatia to its South that can all be reached within a couple of hours drive.

    In Italy try get to Sorrento, in Poland Krakow is a must and is one of the most intrigueing places that I have ever visited, of course Prague, Berlin, Switzerland and if you can get to Norway you will in no way regret it
