Begin your exciting vacation with an excursion from Bucharest to Transylvania where you'll visit the Bran Castle of Dracula fame, believed to be the home of Romanian vampires. Then, enjoy guided sightseeing of Brasov and visit Peles Castle in Sinaia, considered one of the most beautiful in Europe.

Bucharest, Romania, is known for its wide, tree-lined boulevards and historical treasures. Here, you'll see the Arc de Triomphe-built in honor of WWI soldiers-and the historical Royal Palace Square. Your river cruise will take you through the serene Danube Delta, which is home to over 300 species of birds and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There's guided sightseeing in Constanta and Bulgaria's ancient capital of Veliko Tarnovo. Visit the Ethnographical Museum and Church of the Nativity in Arbanassi, and take pictures of Belogradchik's eclectic group of rock formations and the spectacular scenery of the Iron Gates. Visit Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, and one of the oldest cities in Europe. Continue your cultural journey on an excursion to Pécs, Hungary. Established by the Romans in the 2nd century, you'll see underground burial chambers with fascinating murals, another UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There are countless memorable moments on this fascinating river cruise through Eastern Europe, and it doesn't end until you've experienced the unique energy of Budapest. Set along the banks of the Danube River, the capital of Hungary offers an eclectic mix of activities. A local expert introduces you to the must-see sights, such as Heroes' Square, Fishermen's Bastion, and the Parliament Building. And with free time to explore on your own, perhaps walk across one or more of the city's famous bridges, shop for Herend porcelain or handcrafted embroidery, and bask in the coffee house culture with a rich cream cake in the renowned Gerbeaud Café.
