Colorado, USA. Most people that fly from the States connect through Frankfurt, Munich, or Vienna. There are also quite a few flights through Istanbul if you don't have to fly a US Carrier. - Jul 2019


Austria. Flight connection is very good, Austrian Airlines operates daily flights. Bus connections take about 12 hours and are inexpensive. It's also possible to go home by own car; time depends on traffic and on waiting time at the borders, around 10 hours. If you go by road, better have an ID-Card, additionally to your passport; otherwise on the Serbian border, they will send you back, and you have to travel to Serbia via Macedonia, which will cost you additional time. - Nov 2016
