Budapest, Vienna and Prague Singles Vacation
May 21st - June 1st
International Air & 10-nights deluxe hotel - $2,825
Here is the final of our 3 Europe trips! This will be our 2nd trip to Prague and Vienna and the first time we are offering Budapest.
We’ll start off in Budapest, Hungary, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The UNESCO World Heritage Committee has listed the view of the Danube embankments and the Buda Castle District - which is one of the most beautiful and romantic parts of the city of Budapest - as a World Heritage site. The latter is an ancient town district, giving home to some of the most important historical monuments in Hungary. While nearly 800 years passed since it has been originally founded, its beauty still stands unparalleled, despite earthquakes, fires, sieges and world wars.
Both the Pest and Buda embankments of the Danube stretching from the Liberty Bridge all the way up to the Margaret Bridge, the area encompassed by the Chain Bridge and some of the buildings belonging to the Technical University, the Gellért Bath, the Gellért Hill with the Statue of Liberty and the Citadel, the Castle of Buda, the Baroque churches and Turkish baths of the so-called Water Town - these are all parts of the World Heritage today.
There is a lot to see and do in Budapest so I don't want to offer too many tours that will take us out of the old town. With all the incredibly beautiful cathedrals and buildings you'll want to spend some time walking. But we will organize optional tours to visit to the nearby town of Szentendre (http://www.hungary-tourist-guide.com/szentendre.html) that you can even take a bike ride to and a tour to visit Puszta (http://www.budapest.com/leisure/sightseeing_tours/full_day_programs/puszta_tour.en.html) to enjoy this baroque city and visit a farm that offers a horse show that sounds really nice.
From Budapest we will then take the hydrofoil to Vienna, which is very scenic, to spend the next 3 nights.
known for their medieval streets and magnificent cathedrals and palaces, this promises to be a wonderful destination. Magnificent Hofburg Palace, Belvedere Palace, extensive gardens, museums, music, architecture, trendy clubs and restaurants are all waiting for us. We’ll stroll through the old Jewish Quarter and see the only Viennese synagogue to have survived the 1938 Kristallnacht. More famous composers have lived here than in any other city including Mozart, Strauss and TchaikovskyWe'll take a nice boat ride on the Danube to visit the beauty of the Wachau. Through this romantic scenery full of history and legends the Danube winds his way past charming old villages and steep vineyards. We'll set up an optional tour to Salzburg and become acquainted with the beautiful Salzkammergut landscape with its mountains and its numerous lakes and see Mozart's birth place in the Getreidegasse. We'll get to stroll through the old city, showing you the most important sights of this old Bishop's Seat. These are the Cathedral, the Festival Hall, St. Peter's Abbey Church and its graveyard (tomb of Mozart's sister Nannerl).
Lastly, we have saved the best for last - Prague for 4 nights, a city that has become one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. You will absolutely love our hotel here, the Hotel Paris, located right in the middle of the Old Towne and very elegant - completely worthy of all of it's 5-stars. We will bus from Vienna to Prague and will visit the amazing medieval town of Cesky Krumlov along the way. This is one of the most scenic towns you will ever visit (see photo on right), complete with moat and drawbridge!
rague was once the seat of the Holy Roman Empire. It was largely undamaged by WWII, and the cityscape is stunning. Its compact medieval centre remains an evocative maze of cobbled lanes, ancient courtyards, dark passages and churches beyond number, all watched over by an 1100-year-old castle. Its traditional pubs and eateries have been augmented by a wave of gourmet restaurants, cocktail bars and trendy cafes.
We’ll wander around Old Town Square with its many wonderful Gothic and baroque buildings. We’ll see the famous 15th-century astronomical clock at the Old Town Hall. Every hour, crowds assemble below to watch Christ and the twelve Apostles appear at two little windows above the clock face, followed by the skeleton of Death tolling the bell. In the evenings we’ll find some of Europe’s best jazz venues, excellent opera, and innovative theater. We may even take a countryside tour to discover genuine Czech rural culture and community life in a small village.
We'll return back to the US from Prague.
