cruise: WNBQ-T2 10 Day River Cruise Prague to Budapest
From Prague to vibrant Budapest, this Danube River cruise travels to four legendary countries known for spectacular scenic beauty, rich culture, fantastic food, and iconic music and art. Spend two nights in Prague to explore one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Guided sightseeing in the Golden City includes the iconic Old Town’s medieval Astronomical Clock and a visit to the Hradčany Castle grounds. Take a fascinating tour through the city’s Jewish Quarter, and visit the notorious Terezín Concentration Camp.

Travel to Nuremberg, Germany, to board your Avalon Suite Ship® 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 get a historical and meaningful sense of Jewish life in the last century. Your European river cruise vacation ends in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, with guided sightseeing and a tour illuminating the city’s Jewish heritage. Join onboard lectures to learn more about the European Jewish culture, history and traditions on this enlightening European vacation and Danube River cruise.
