HIGHLIGHTS

  • Travel to four European countries once hidden behind the Iron Curtain: The Czech Republic, East Germany, Poland and Hungary. (And glimpse the scenic beauties of a fifth: Slovakia.)
  • Enter Prague Castle, and be dazzled (almost literally) by St Vitus's - the Gothic Cathedral of light.
  • Tiptoe past a horde of Czech saints as you cross Prague's famous Charles Bridge.
  • Face eternity beneath Prague's medieval Astronomical Clock. (We-ell, it's a pretty ghoulish performance - they took Death seriously back in the Middle Ages.)
  • Recover from your Clock Shock at an evening of Czech folklore, singing and dancing.
  • Blow your inhibitions with dinner, revelry and singing (just a little tipsy) at a traditional German tavern.
  • As you visit numerous sites connected with the Second World War, see it with fresh eyes - and often from another viewpoint:
          * Wander around Dresden, once reduced to rubble by an Allied firestorm and now risen from the dead.
          * Visit Checkpoint Charlie.
          * Examine the remains of the notorious Berlin Wall.
          * Visit the location of the genocidal Jewish Ghetto in Warsaw.
          * Walk through the chilling Auschwitz death camp.
  • Attend our own private Chopin performance in a Polish chamber of music.
  • Be taken deep underground into a fairytale extravaganza of salt.
  • Gaze down from a medieval fortress on one of the Danube River's scenic highlights.
  • Admire descendants of Magyar tribesmen as they celebrate their horse-riding skills.
  • Luxuriate to the taste of a Budapest gourment moment - a famous Gundel chocolate crepe.
  • Watch in awe during your dinner cruise on the Danube as the grand city of Budapest comes alive all around you, sculpted in lights.
