What a beautiful part of Europe these 3 small countries are and what a fascinating history they have. From the Lipizzaner Stallions of Vienna, to the fabulous Parliament Building in Budapest, ending with the beautiful buildings in the Old Town in Prague ...this itinerary is filled with good stuff.
This was an amazing tour that exceeded my expectations! There is no better way to learn about and experience the history, culture and cuisine than by having a wonderful Tour Director (TD)! Constantin was extremely knowledgable about the complicated history of these central/eastern European countries
This tour was fantastic! There was so much fun and beauty to be seen in Budapest, Vienna and Prague. Each city is so different but each city has its own charm. Our tour Director Paul was knowledgeable on all cities. I highly recommend this trip, as being different from other European areas.
This tour is an amazing way to learn about history. The details about the World War and all that happened in Europe are brought to life every day of the tour. The optional excursions brought a depth of understanding.
What are some interesting things to do on a trip to Prague?
If you’re planning a trip to Prague, you’ll want to visit the majestic medieval architecture of Old Town Square, walk up Petrín Hill for a panoramic view of the cityscape, check out the giant baby statues in Kampa Park, and browse the Naplavka Farmers Market.
And whether or not you’re a Beatles fan, you’ll love the Lennon Wall. Dedicated to the late legend, it’s covered with Beatles-inspired art and lyrics about selfless acts and global causes. It’s a truly breathtaking sight.
If you’re planning a trip to Prague, you should make sure to see these sites:
Prague Castle. This enormous 9th-century structure, once home to princes and kings of Bohemia, is now the president’s seat and an incredible place to explore on our Prague tours.
St. Vitus Cathedral. This Roman Catholic cathedral is the largest church in the country and it’s well known for its Gothic architecture.
Charles Bridge. Some recognize this bridge by the 30 statues of saints that line the edges. According to legend, the statues come alive at night and roam around the city.
Prague Astronomical Clock. This colorful, intricate, 15th-century clock at the Old Town Hall has three main parts: the astronomical dial, an hourly “show” where the Apostles on the clock dance around, and a calendar dial that represents months.
Vepro knedlo zelo is one of the national dishes of the Czech Republic. It’s made with pork, sauerkraut, and dumplings. Locals roast all that savory goodness and serve it with a gravy made of onions and caraway seeds.
Goulash is another must-try food. This popular beef dish showcases a rich gravy with plenty of paprika—a very common spice in Eastern Europe. Travelers love to order a plate on our Prague tours.
Trdelnik is an all-time favorite for travelers on our Prague group tours. This doughy dessert is comparable to a chimney cake topped with cinnamon and sugar. We recommend that you also take the time to watch this delicious pastry as it’s roasted over an open flame. Around Christmastime, you’ll find many trdelnik stalls in the streets, so make sure to pick up a freshly-made treat (or three!).
