Five Imperial Cities

E

njoy the vibrant historical old Prague, with its cobblestone streets, fascinating Castle, Astronomical Clock and Old Town Square. This old city is one of the few that did not get destroyed during the invasion of the Germans in WWII. Every meal is a culinary experience with local beers to match! Street musicians everywhere contribute to its great atmosphere. Don’t forget the Wallenstein Garden with its beautiful peacocks, even an albino one!

 

On to the Romantic Blue Danube Viking cruise: Soak in the healing qualities of Budapest’s thermal baths. Make dumplings with Wachau Valley apricots, then explore Göttweig Abbey, one of Austria’s most revered monastic centers. See how Germany works at a local Passau business and at the Regensburg BMW factory. Celebrate Vienna’s musical heritage at a concert featuring works by Mozart and Strauss. With medieval towns, grand cities and stunning scenery, this 8-day journey on the “Blue Danube” is one you’re sure to love.

 

Breathe in the views, architecture, history, language, folklore, dance and cuisine of eclectic Budapest! Experience the dichotomy of old-world charm and evidence of the Communist Revolution. Above all, enjoy the vibrancy of this charming city.

Tour dates: 28 July – 6 August 2017
