This in-depth journey—debuting in 2016—combines our popular “Delightful Danube & Prague” cruise with our “Highlights of Eastern Europe & Istanbul” itinerary, making for an irresistible introduction to this intriguing corner of the world.
Explore the rich cultural heritage of Prague before embarking on a scenic voyage along the legendary Danube, stopping in charming towns and splendid cities along the way and enjoying the region’s wonderful art, music, architecture, cuisine, and wine. Discover grand capitals with city tours that show you all the highlights, or opt for one of our alternative “Choice Is Yours” excursions, such as a “Vienna, City of Arts” tour, a “Do as the Locals Do” walking tour in Budapest, or a “Go Active” hike or riverside bike ride—all excursions offered only by Uniworld.
Continuing eastward, you’ll meet friendly locals on a farm visit and home-hosted lunch in Croatia. In Belgrade, enjoy a city tour that visits the Royal Grounds of the Karadjordevic Dynasty Palace, or take an exclusive guided “Go Active” “I Bike Belgrade” tour. Marvel at the imposing stone cliffs known as the Iron Gates, and venture ashore to explore rock-hewn monasteries, strange rock formations, and opulent churches. An abundance of other unforgettable experiences await, including a city tour of Bucharest that features the immense People’s Palace, Romania’s most famous building. Your adventure concludes in Istanbul, where you’ll enjoy a tour of this exotic and beguiling city and visit the famous Grand Bazaar.
