Experience the beauty of Eastern Europe as you explore highlights of six fascinating nations. The majestic banks of the Danube link five of these - Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania. Sail along the borderlines to see the ancient Roman ruins that still cling to the banks, and the great stone cliffs of the legendary Iron Gates. Visit the fascinating cities of Budapest and Belgrade, the ancient towns of Vidin and Rousse, and the eerie rock formations of Belogradchik before two nights in Bucharest, and two more in Istanbul, a lively city of warmth, vibrancy and many layers of culture and history.
