What entices you most about a river cruise through Central Europe? Does visiting historical sites pique your interest? How about architecture preserved from the 14th century or cities virtually untouched since Roman times? Maybe it’s walking down narrow cobblestone streets lined with beautiful Patrician houses or enjoying Germany’s famous beers? From Prague to vibrant Budapest, this Danube river cruise vacation takes you to four countries. And the scenic beauty along the way as you cruise past quaint towns can be experienced right from your stateroom or while sipping wine atop the Sky Deck of your ship. During your cruise, experts will join us to introduce you to the Jewish culture and its remarkable history in Europe. Enjoy two nights in Prague, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Here, plenty of activities are waiting for you: a guided sightseeing which will show you the must-see sights, a visit to Terezin Concentration Camp and a Jewish Heritage tour through the fascinating Jewish Quarter. Stand in front of Old Town’s medieval Astronomical Clock, which amazes as an intricate art piece and visualization of time unlike anything else in the world. Travel to Nuremberg, Germany, to board your river cruise vessel docked on the Main Danube Canal and visit this thousand-year-old city with a Local Guide. Next, reach Regensburg, the only German city not bombed during WWII, where you will follow the traces of its Jewish history from the middle ages. Lovers of architecture will enjoy the many listed buildings of historic interest, and Porta Pretoria, gates to an ancient Roman fort built in 179 AD. Passau, known for its narrow, winding streets, offers the magnificent Italian baroque St. Stephen’s Cathedral. In Melk, you will visit Austria’s majestic Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe’s largest monasteries, which sits high on a bluff. Take in the breathtaking views before continuing through the picturesque Wachau Valley to the romantic sounds of Vienna, the “City of Music.” Join a guided city tour and discover the Jewish life in the last century. Your European river cruise vacation ends in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, with guided sightseeing and a tour focused on the Jewish Heritage of the city. You will also have some free time to explore this vibrant city on your own.
