Both leisurely and comprehensive, this small group tour provides a generous overview of four fascinating nations – Poland, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic.  Begin your 16-day journey in Poland’s capital, Warsaw, where sightseeing includes the faithfully rebuilt Old Town and moving visits to the Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps.  Next is historic Krakow with its medieval Old Town, a UNESCO site, and the Wieliczka Salt Mines, another UNESCO site.

Travel through the Tatra Mountains to Budapest, the “Paris of the East,” with its splendid architecture and lively café culture.  Journey along the scenic Danube Bend to grand Vienna, where a classical music performance awaits, along with visits to the Opera House and majestic Schönbrunn Palace.  The final destination is elegant Prague for a three-night stay and touring that includes Old Town Square, Prague Castle and the historic Jewish ghetto.  Experience Germany’s cosmopolitan capital on an optional 4-day/3-night Berlin post-tour extension.
