Described by Napoleon as “the king of Europe’s rivers,” the Danube is steeped in legend and epic lore. Discover the scenic banks that have witnessed centuries of human history and the rise and fall of civilizations. Natural wonders abound in the vineyard-clad Wachau Valley, the narrow, twisting Danube Bend and the formidable Iron Gate Gorge. Begin your experience by delving into the rich culture of Prague, and explore its Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Embark on an eight-night cruise of the Danube, offering a feast of ancient capitals, picturesque villages, Roman ruins, magnificent churches, palaces and medieval castles. Continue to Sofia, the historic capital of Bulgaria, where ancient ruins and chic boutiques coexist among tree-shaded boulevards.
