Passage to Eastern Europe

Monday, August 10, 2020

A less-traveled path featuring amazingly exotic, historic, and scenic opportunities. We will traverse the eastern Danube and search out the wonders of Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, and Hungary. We begin in Budapest, Hungary, reportedly one of the loveliest European cities, where we stay two nights to erase our jet lag. We move on to Kalocsa, Vukovar, Belgrade, Golbac, Vidin, Russe, and end in Bucharest, Romania. See Bucharest’s 3,000-room Palace of Parliament. Make banitsa bread with a home cook in Vidin. Explore Belgrade’s Ottoman and European treasures, including 6thcentury Kalemegdan Fortress. View the Danube’s towering Iron Gate. Visit a Croatian family’s Osijek home. Witness Hungary’s daredevil Puszta horsemen. Behold Budapest’s grandeur. Once hidden behind the Iron Curtain, the eastern Danube still has secrets to reveal on this enriching cruise tour.
