Central/Eastern Europe in JanuaryHello.
I am going to Europe, solo, last minute opportunity had to snatch it up :), in January (only time I can go), and although I have never necessarily traveled this continent too much (Hungary/Austria) East/Central Europe has always caught my eye. I'm going to be there 2-3 weeks. My tentative plan is land in London > Germany > Czech Republic > Poland. I realize it will be cold, but the temperature is bearable, and similar to where I am from.
I think that should be realistic?
Any fun suggestions of what I should see?
Tips for winter time travel through those countries?
Thanks, any and all advice helps! :0)

1No crowds, cosy cafes with great cakes, warm museums... not such a bad time to travel. These countries are all well-geared to snow and frost so no transport problems unless there's a real blizzard (your weak point is London where they really can't handle anything under 0 degrees!). Good shoes, socks and thermal underwear should suffice. Layers.
With 2-3 weeks you could select 5-6 places in Germany/Czech/Poland... perhaps a look around Berlin, Prague, Czesky Krumlov, Wroclaw, Krakow, Warsaw with some time for daytrips into rural areas from some of these places.

2Well, luckily London is just a layover for me :). Yeah I'm going to enjoy "off season" very much, because that sounds phenomenal. Thank you, I'm well prepared for the cold so that won't be any extra expense, thank god.
Yes, definitely hitting up the big capitals! And exploring is always a big thing for me, so the rural areas is great idea, and should produce some unexpected fun, as always, so thanks for that!
