i would like to start this topic because I would like to ask what is your favourite airport to fly in Central and Eastern Europe. The countries I am talking about are Czech Republic and east of it.
Personally, for it is is Prague and Ostrava (OSR).

Quoting Cgnnrw (Reply 10): Anyone remember Budapest Ferihegy Terminal 1? Perfect for any "iron curtain" nostaligists....a real good example of socialist architecture from the 1960s.
Oh yes. when I first went to work in Hungary in the early/mid 90s I used to fly in and out of T1. As you say, a marvellous example of socialist architecture, inside and out. Really felt like you were still in the Eastern Bloc.
Quoting HT (Reply 13): T1 at BUD is supposed to be the LCC-terminal now (but was a cargo terminal in recent years).
My understanding too was that it would become the LCC terminal.
Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work

OTP definitely because of the 100 plus flights I have had to and from that airport, perhaps two were delayed ! Also the luggages arrive very quickly and one doesn't need to walk miles from the plane to the luggage belts area.
They have extension plans and are about to finish works on the second runway taxiing lane. I think this is a future potential hub between Europe and ME.

Another one came to my mind: TIV
Back in the early 1980´s it was quite a bit of a thrill to make a 180-degree turn within the Bay of Kotor in order to align with the runway. My logs show that it was a DC-9 of Inex Adria Airways. When we arrived at the airport for our return flight early morning, the airport was still locked. Some custodian had to open the building for us; the DC-9 flew in a bit later on a positioning flight (from DBV, IIRC).
So this one is in the category "favourite for experience" ...
