Traveling through Eastern Europe seems to be an easy thing. There are a lot of direct trains connecting the most popular tourist destinations such as Krakow, Prague, Budapest and Vienna. Ticket prices may seem quite reasonable for foreign western tourists, however for Eastern European standards they are extremely expensive. It’s possible to save a lot of money and maintain (or increase!) the comfort of travel.
In a past there were 2 direct trains from Krakow to Budapest/Budapest to Krakow. However the standard of travel was close to be acceptable, it was the most popular way to get to Budapest/Krakow. There is just one night train from Budapest to Krakow at the moment (number of trains was probably reduced due to poor financial condition of the polish public railways). Travel takes ages and it is not cheap.
Instead of train you can choose one of two bus companies (Orangeways http://orangeways.com/en or Eurolines http://www.eurolines.pl/en/home-page ). Tickets are twice as cheap and it takes just 7-8 hours to get to the next destination. Unfortunately the bus only leaves a few days each week – not every day.
Same story with connections: Krakow-Vienna. The train is quite comfortable, but much more expensive than a bus (http://www.eurolines.pl/en/home-page ).
You can also get a bus ticket from Krakow to Prague/Prague to Krakow, but it doesn’t leave very frequently, just 2-3 days a week. Direct trains are extremely expensive (60-70 Euros!), so travelling through Cieszyn (a border city) is becoming a more popular way to get from Prague to Krakow/Krakow to Prague. Starting from Krakow, you simply need to catch a bus from Krakow Main Bus Station to Cieszyn. Buses runs every hour (except the night time – last one departs around 10 pm and the first one around 6 am). It takes about 3 hours to get to Cieszyn and regular ticket costs approx. 5 Euros. After arrival, there is about a 20 minute walk from the Polish to the Czech part of the same city, called now Cesky Tesin (yeah, both Polish and Czech variations are so difficult to pronounce…). From the train station in Cesky Tesin, depart a lot of trains to Prague. Just don’t forget to exchange money – for train tickets you need to pay in Czech Korunas. Catch train (ticket costs around 16 Euros), relax for about 4 hours, and finally you’re in Prague! So simple, so fast, so cheap!
For any detailed information about your travel – you can check the new Cieszyn 3 Bros Hostel’s website – they’ve got all the important information (timetables, directions) on: http://3broshostel.com/en/how-to-get-there
Other connections seem to be bit easier.
If you really enjoy trains – do not hesitate to take the one from Prague to Bratislava/Bratislava to Prague. The price is more than reasonable, and trains are comfortable.
Generally, Czech but also Slovakian railways are quite good and cheap, as compared to Polish and Hungarian ones.
Enjoy your travel!
Archaeologists have considered it one of the most important discoveries since the Roman Forum: a recently completed excavation of a 900-seat auditorium under Rome’s piazza Venezia, believed to have been funded by Emperor Hadrian around 123 CE.
Situated 5.5 metres below ground, with three halls, 13 metre-high arched ceilings and terraced marble seating, the auditorium was part of an ancient arts complex, where Rome’s noblemen gathered to hear poetry recitals, speeches and treatises on philosophy.

Tips to Throwing a Safe Holiday Party
The holiday season means it is time to share memorable moments with family and friends. This can be done in many different fashions, entertaining at home being a popular option. Whether you’re planning a small gathering or a large-scale get-together, these tips may help to keep your holiday guests happy and safe:
If you plan on hosting a get together, it is your job to be aware of the risks involved. Although you are supposed to be celebrating with those you love, it is also important to be responsible when consuming alcohol. Avoid accidents and injuries by promoting safety at your holiday event!
Drive Safely This Holiday Season!
Driving while impaired by alcohol may be considered one of the greatest highway safety problems, especially during the holidays. With many parties being thrown this season, most of which will serve alcohol, it is important that you stay alert and safe on the road. You don’t want to put you and your family at risk with drunk drivers out and about.
Planning is key to being a safe driver during the holidays. Try to find a route that is easy to navigate at any time of the day. Also, staying away from highways can be one of the safest ways for you to get home. If you are concerned about the conditions of the road after a large party has been thrown in your neighborhood, opt to stay the night at a friend’s house or leave earlier in the evening to avoid drunk drivers. In addition, if you are the one consuming alcohol, make sure you have a designated driver or alternative transportation so you don’t put anyone else’s life in danger.
The holidays are a time for celebration and joy. With a little preparation and awareness, you can help keep your loved ones safe on the road this season!
Neanderthals may have lived side by side with early humans and possibly interbred with them, according to new research.
Stone axes and sharp flint arrowheads of both branches of the human race have been discovered in limestone caves in northern Israel.
The findings, reported in the Times, have led archeologists to believe the two sub-species found harmony in a coastal mountain range that today is in a state of war with its neighbours.
None of the bones uncovered at Nahal Me’arot – a World Heritage site – had lethal wounds which suggested prehistoric men lived in peace with each other 80,000 years ago.
Neanderthals were much more sophisticated than they have been credited, according to archeologist Daniel Kaufman – with their own burial rituals and probably language skills alongside their ability to make tools.
Until the unification of Italy in 1861, Sicily was the largest, most prosperous, wealthiest and populous of the Italian states. Nearly half of the world’s Italians – in Italy and its diaspora – trace their roots to the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.
A particular myth about the people of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies and their wealth compared to that of other Italians is easily dispelled: The Landless Peasant. Despite the presence of large estates (latifondi) held by the nobility into the twentieth century, especially in grain-growing areas, most Sicilians of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries owned their own homes and at least a garden or small parcel of land. The ready proof of this are the land tax records or riveli retained at Palermo’s state archive. Those of 1748 and 1811 list numerous smallholders in each Sicilian town.
