Passage Along the Danube River: Vienna to the Black Sea

October 10 - 22, 2022
Trip Description
Danube

Join us on this exceptional travel program that features seven countries and the enchanting eastern Danube River Valley, a region steeped in natural beauty that remains virtually untouched and unknown to many American travelers. Cruise for nine nights aboard the exclusively chartered vessel and spend two nights in Romania’s elegant capital of Bucharest where the splendid architecture has earned the city the nickname “Little Paris.”


The Danube River has ranked among the world’s most impressive waterways with the passage of Roman legions, crusading knights, the indomitable Janissaries of the Ottomans and the proud Hussars of the Habsburgs. A channel for commerce, culture and conquest, the Danube links the heartland of Central Europe with the nations beyond the Black Sea. Join us for an extraordinary cruise along nearly the entire length of this fabled river, from the Habsburgs’ imperial capital of Vienna, a UNESCO World Heritage site, to the pearl-blue Black Sea.


A rich mosaic of medieval cities, charming villages, rugged countrysides, and centuries-old tales and traditions awaits you. Traverse the ancient lands of Bulgaria, the relatively young territories of Serbia and eastern Croatia, the spectacular Carpathian Mountains, Hungary’s fabled Puszta (plains) and the glittering, UNESCO World Heritage-designated palaces of Budapest. Cruise through the dramatic Iron Gates dividing the Carpathian and Balkan Mountains—where no fewer than six languages are spoken—and experience the fascinating Slavic heritage of medieval Belgrade.
