Your Holiday Itinerary - Magnificent Cities of Eastern Europe

Day 1: Berlin, Germany - Tour Begins

Arrive in Germany’s capital city of Berlin. This city blends a deep history, a modern flare and multi-cultural influences.

Day 2: Berlin

Today, see Berlin your way! You may choose a city tour that introduces you to the city’s rich history: you’ll see Charlottenburg Palace, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Schoenberg City Hall, Kurfuerstendam and the Reichstag Building. Or, perhaps you’ll join a “Cold War”-focused tour that includes a visit to the Berlin Wall Museum followed by a walk through the area that was once “Checkpoint Charlie,” and see what remains of the Berlin Wall. This afternoon you have the opportunity to join an optional excursion outside the city to visit Potsdam and the famous Sans Souci Palace.

Day 3: Berlin - Dresden - Prague, Czech Republic

Today you’ll travel to the “Golden City” of Prague. En route, make a stop in Dresden and explore this lovely town on the banks of the River Elbe. This evening choose your Prague dining experience. You may choose to get to know traditional Czech culture during a folklore show and dinner featuring local drinks. Or, dine at one of Eastern Europe’s oldest breweries and tour the brewery to see the process of making this famous beer that has been brewed for 500 years.

Day 4: Prague

Your introduction to this fairytale city opens with a visit to the remarkable Hradcany Castle and the haunting St. Vitus Cathedral. Continue with a leisurely walking tour through the old town, showcasing the Golden Lane, the unique astronomical clock and the statue-lined Charles Bridge. The afternoon is yours to independently explore this great city.

Day 5: Prague - Vienna, Austria

Leaving the Czech Republic, arrive in colourful and vibrant Vienna, the “musical city.” After a short orientation drive through the city, your afternoon is at leisure to relax. Later, enjoy an evening in one of Vienna’s most beloved restaurants where dinner mixes with local cultural fl avour to create an unforgettable night.

Day 6: Vienna

This morning experience the city on a tour showcasing some of its architectural marvels, including the lavish Schoenbrunn Palace and the summer retreat of the Habsburg dynasty. The remainder of the day is yours to explore independently. Perhaps you will visit one of the famous museums, sip a Viennese coffee at a local coffee house, or simply relax. Tonight you have the option to enjoy a Mozart concert and dinner in the city.

Day 7: Vienna - Budapest, Hungary

Sit back, relax and enjoy the picturesque Hungarian countryside en route to historic Budapest. Upon arrival, a local expert provides an informative city tour featuring Fisherman’s Bastion, Matthias Church, Old Buda, the New Parliament and Gellert Hill. A special stop is made at Heroes’ Square, a unique monument to the many diverse leaders of Hungary.

Day 8: Budapest

The beautiful city of Budapest is often referred to as “the Queen of the Danube.” Today is yours to discover this city divided by the Danube with historic Buda on one side and cosmopolitan Pest on the opposite bank. Relax in the city or perhaps join an optional excursion to a traditional Hungarian horse farm where riders perform amazing feats, followed by a typical lunch in the “Puzsta.”

Day 9: Budapest - Donovaly, Slovakia - Krakow, Poland

Take in the picturesque landscapes en route to Poland. Make a stop in the hidden village of Donovaly, nestled in the Low Tatras mountain range of Slovakia. Your home for the next two nights is the lively city of Krakow, which still offers an oldworld charm.

Day 10: Krakow

Discover Krakow’s historic Old Town on a city tour featuring Market Square, St. Mary’s Church, the University, and Wawel Castle, a former residence of Polish kings. The afternoon is at leisure for you to enjoy the city on your own.

Day 11: Krakow - Auschwitz - Warsaw

Today you embark on a poignant journey through history as you travel to witness the camps of Auschwitz. A local expert guides you through the former concentration camps where you will see first-hand the various prison cells and learn the history of the prison and many of the hardships that occurred within those walls. Afterwards, travel through the Polish countryside en route to Warsaw, the reconstructed and modern capital of this rejuvenated country. The evening is yours to relax or explore. Browse one of the city’s art galleries or fascinating museums, or simply relax at an outdoor café.

Day 12: Warsaw

The moving history of Warsaw, both joyous and tragic, is yours to embrace as you embark on a locally-guided tour of this capital city. Tonight, join your fellow travellers for a farewell dinner celebrating the end of a memorable trip.

Day 13: Warsaw

Your tour ends in Warsaw
