- 10D7N tour for 1 for $1,288 (up to $1,588 value)
Delve into the heart of Europe with strolls through the historic streets of Czech Republic. Begin with a visit to St. Bartholomew Cathedral in Plzeň and climb up 301 steps to reach the pinnacle of the cathedral’s tallest tower. Look out to the city from 103m up high, as it stretches beneath with a colourful amalgamation of traditional and contemporary styles, before lifting gazes to the snow-dusted peaks of Šumava region. Next, head for the Great Synagogue, and step into the 3rd largest synagogue in the world. Be enveloped by the Moorish-Romanesque architecture that lends the synagogue its famed acoustics. When not hosting religious services, the synagogue offers its space and pneumatic organ as a concert venue. Venture past Plzeň for the old-world charm of Prague, where Hradčany Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, awaits for casual explorations through largest castle complex in the world. Continue one to St. Vitus Cathedral, St. George’s Basilica, Town Hall, and the Astronomical Clock – all famous landmarks within city.
From there, embrace medieval customs as you walk past the stone buildings of Bratislava’s Old Town, and carry on to Budapest for panoramic views from the terrace and seven towers (built to represent the seven tribes that founded Hungary) of Fisherman’s Bastion, before enjoying a Hungarian folk show and dinner. Set strides towards Wattens, the hometown of crystal company, Swarovski, visit the birthplace of famed composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Salzburg, and cruise over to Vienna where culture and history reign as the tour stops at Schönbrunn Palace, Belvedere Gardens, St. Stephen’s Cathedral - the official seat of the Viennese archbishop -, and more. Lastly, tour the Munich’s old town and be mesmerised by the red-brick and twin domes of Frauenkirche before indulging inner gourmands with purchases of artisan wursts, cheeses, and fruits at Viktualienmarkt.
