Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture

Age Range:
18-24

Customer Travel Tip: Go to the torist places at least 30 minutes before they open, or book a ticket online. Buy a pack of 10 tickets for the public transport to get them a bit cheeper. If you use more than one metro you only need one ticket so try and stick to them.

Liked: Public transport is so regular and so cheep

Disliked: All the landmarks are quite spaced out and the queues become enormous.
