      For me, beautiful first stop was Prague, but too many people. Do have a favorite cafe off the main plaza throngs. Budapest was very nice after 4 days in Vienna rain. A day trip to Bratislava onl the river/train broke up the Vienna stay. But the crowds were much thinner and younger in the Jewish quarter where we stayed.
