This delightful journey along the River Danube aboard the luxury river vessel MS Amadeus Silver III carries us gently through Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Slovakia and Austria. The cruise encompasses not only the history, culture and tradition of Central Europe, but also its former Imperial capitals, attractive villages, proud castles, impressive churches and some of the most picturesque scenery imaginable.
Beginning in the Romanian capital of Bucharest, we sail up river, through the Danube Delta, home to many unique species of birds, fish and other wildlife, visiting small towns along the way including Hirsova and Constanta. We cruise through the famous ‘Iron Gates’ before reaching Belgrade, the capital of Serbia for a visit, and then continue onto Budapest in Hungary. After exploring the sights of the city, we sail on until we reach the unspoiled city of Bratislava, one of the most important cities in the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. We finally reach Vienna, the city of Habsburgs and heart of their Empire, where our journey ends.
It promises to be a delightful journey, complimented by an inspiring array of shore excursions and captivating lectures from Douglas Skeggs.
