my favorite is Montenegro
This summer rode from Paris to Istanbul so in Eastern Europe saw Slovenija, Croatia,Montenegro, Serbia Bulgaria and european Turkey -- though not Greece, which I suspect might be the most interesting especially in the spring or fall. Would recommend Montenegro (Crna Gris) as having good climbs and easy to get around, though all are good; Slovenija is the most developed of the lot and also has good mountains (the Julian Alps). Hungary in past experience is not so interesting, thats the flatlands. Have not been to Romania but suspect its a good combination of mountains and not too busy, a bit out of the way which always makes it nicer. Slovakia is also good.
Suspect the weather will dictate, whats good in the summer (at least in my experience, mountains) becomes cold fast.
