Unearth the pulsing history and incredible architecture of some of the most fascinating cities in Europe, where rustic mountains meet gothic style, and the atmosphere is vibrant and lively. Discover Budapest in all its glory, visit the number one destination in Europe – Zagreb, marvel at the dramatic beauty of the Dolomites, stroll around the home of Oktoberfest – Munich, and finally, reach the city of a thousand spires,** Prague, in this **once-in-a-lifetime adventure through Central Europe.

The Sights – From grandeur on the Danube to historic beauty

Budapest, Hungary's capital that straddles the Danube River,** will give you a warm welcome to Europe. This two-sided city, Buda to the west and Pest to the east, is a treasure-trove for travellers. Be awed as you **walk through the cobbled streets of Budapest, view the famous Royal Palace, once a royal residence and now home to the** Hungarian National Gallery. After seeing the magnificent Heroe's Square, the largest square in the city, take in **the best views of the city from the famed Fisherman's Bastions, a viewing terrace built in the 19th century.

Vibrant and teeming with culture, it's no wonder Zagreb is considered one of the hottest cities in Europe. Your** local guide** will take you to view all the unmissable landmarks, including monumental cathedrals, coloured churches and main squares. Embrace the vibrant atmosphere of this city with a stroll along Ilica Street, the most popular street in Zagreb, brimming with cafes, restaurants and shops.

Hop aboard your air-conditioned motor coach to travel onward to Slovenia, Croatia's next-door neighbour. Here you will see the monuments and sights of the flourishing Ljubljana, before continuing to the resort town of Bled in the heart of the Julian Alps. Take a picturesque boat trip on the emerald waters of Lake Bled and you have the option of exploring the UNESCO-listed Postonja caves and impressive Predjama castle.

On your way to Tyrol's capital city, Innsbruck, **travel right through the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Dolomite** mountain range. One of the lesser-known European cities, Innsbruck is a delightful surprise, rich in architectural gems from the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods.

The legendary Glockenspiel Clock awaits you in Munich, showcasing *life-size figures dancing to music *in a charming twice-daily display.

Last, but certainly not least, is the City of a Hundred Spires: Prague. Let the city's maze of streets take you to the** most beautiful monuments and bridges you will lay eyes on. Cross the dark and moody **Charles Bridge, adorned with 30 baroque statues of saints and admire Prague Castle, a fairytale fortress that dominates the city, and embrace the dramatic beauty of the so called 'Paris of the east'.
