Included shore excursions in Bratislava, Belgrade, Danube Delta, Budapest and Vienna.
Explore Eastern Europe through the fascinating gateway of the Danube River, visiting seven different countries from the comfort of the stylish MS Belvedere. A highlight of this journey will be a cruise through the dramatic Iron Gates gorge, a narrow passage dividing Europe’s Alps in the northwest from the Carpathians in the southeast. This is a history-steeped journey taking in medieval villages as well as the classic European cities of Vienna, Belgrade, Bucharest, Budapest and Bratislava as well as the unspoilt beauty of the Danube Delta, home to over 300 species of birdlife.
Bratislava is the capital city of Slovakia and the only national capital which borders two independent countries, Austria and Hungary. Founded over 2,000 years ago and now capital of Slovakia, Bratislava was also capital of Hungary during the late Middle Ages. This afternoon, join an included coach and walking tour of the city with its lovingly-restored old town. A visit to the imposing Bratislava castle is also included.
