Itinerary

Central Europe includes Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia.
Many Central European countries were part of the Austro-Hungarian empire and so they have strong historical and cultural connections.

During your stay, you will visit five capital cities with their specific atmosphere formed by history and the present.
Prague is also known as Mother of Cities, City of a Hundred Spires, or Golden City.
Vienna is famous for its balls, music composers, and fairy-tale Schonbrunn castle.
Bratislava was once the historical capital of the Kingdom of Hungary and the coronation town of the Hungarian kings and Queens.
Budapest offers truly unique geographical locations, including the world's most wast thermal water cave system, second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building in the world.
And finally, Warsaw called a Phoenix City because of its extensive history and complete reconstruction after the bombing.
