Travel through some of Eastern Europe's most fascinating countries—Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, and the Czech Republic—each with a rich culture, fascinating history, and interesting historical sights. Your tour begins in Budapest, Eastern Europe's most cosmopolitan city, and ends in Prague with overnights in Bratislava, Vienna, and České Budějovice.
Sightseeing in each city includes the top-see attractions, including a visit to Heroes' Square in Budapest, founded in 1896 to represent 1000 years of Hungarian history; gothic St. Martin's Church in Bratislava, coronation church for the Kingdom of Hungary from the 16th to 19th centuries; St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna, dating back to the 12th-century; the Esztergom Basilica and Treasury, the largest church in Hungary; and in Prague, the Astronomical Clock, built in 1410, and Hradčany Castle grounds, dating from the 9th century. Enjoy a guided walking tour in the town of Český Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a cobbled Old Town and fine architecture in gothic, renaissance, and baroque styles, constructed between the 13th and 17th centuries.
Globus has also included some special experiences for you. On the way to Prague, stop for a guided visit of Hluboká Castle; visit the Budvar (Budweiser) Brewery in České Budějovice and enjoy a light lunch; and to get an authentic taste of life in Vienna, Globus has included an exclusive waltz dance class, and coffee and cake at a historic local café.
