Experience the best of this old-world region on a journey through enchanting Central Europe. Travel to Austria and be immersed in the country's superb musical heritage and step back in time in the castles of the Czech Republic. Experience Polish traditions while exploring the romantic Old Town of Krakow and get active in Slovakia's Tatra Mountains. Conclude this classical adventure by taking the road less travelled to Budapest. From 1st of January 2017 this trip will run at slightly improved itinerary. On Day 8, instead of staying in the town of Kudowa Zdroj in Poland, we will spent a day in small village within Gory Sowie region and will visit an underground military complex from the II Word War, learn about the history of the region and its dark secrets. This change comes in to effect as a result of past traveller’s feedback as well as the more convenient connections between new location and further destination – Krakow.
