Where the Waters of the Danube Meet the Classical Capitals of Europe. Discover the very essence of three stunningly beautiful capitals for 6 Nights from £349pp!
From the Hungarian capital of Budapest to the Slovakian capital of Bratislava and the Austrian capital of Vienna, this is a wonderful opportunity to not only thunder across Europe’s plains but to sail the waters that are beautifully immortalised by the composer Strauss, in his waltz ‘The Blue Danube”.
Hungary represents a majestic treasure trove of cultural vibrancy, UNSECO world heritage sties, and the visual intensity of the impressive Danube banks. And nowhere does this better than Budapest, a city of creatives, of ruin pubs where young minds and ideas meet from every corner of the world and exquisite aromas emanating from the restaurants of Váci Utca. A night might start in one of these bistros and end with a raucous party in a centennial thermal water spa. Somewhere in the heart of the city a bottle of passion is waiting for you!
Chug along the precipitous countryside on board Train to Bratislava. The Slovakian capital lays claim to some of the most important history in Europe. From Celtic centre to its vital part of the Limes Romanus, the Slavi and Germanic clash to the coronation capital of Hungarian kings. A city fenced in for four decades by the barbed wire of the iron curtain, yet it still has the power to inspire and delight.Today Bratislava is a free and trendy capital; one of the most vibrant in Europe.
From Bratislava to Vienna take to the water on a hydrofoil to appreciate the powerful beauty of the Danube. As described by Lonely Planet, “Vienna is packed with imperial history; at the same time it has exciting contemporary museums and lively nightlife scenes.” The soul-stirring tones of the Vienna Boys’ Choir drifting across a courtyard and the opulent palaces are the perfect antidote for contemporary urban living and the order of the day for culture vultures.
