This voyage truly is an enchanting experience, showcasing the best of what this very different area of Europe has to offer. Take a journey through the region’s history and visit villages, towns and cities which each have their own story to tell about the region’s often turbulent past. You’ll depart Budapest after having plenty of time to explore, before calling at one of Hungary’s oldest towns, Kalocsa. Croatia’s Vukovar is also on your itinerary as is Serbia’s capital Belgrade. You’ll sail through the awesome Iron Gate, visit destinations rich in Ottoman, Byzantine and tsarist history and end your journey with two nights in Romania’s splendid capital Bucharest.
