Setting sail from Budapest

Budapest is one of Eastern Europe's most appealing cities, a vibrant and welcoming capital that straddles the Danube. The history of Budapest has been somewhat turbulent - ransacked by the Mongols in 1241, occupied by the Ottoman Turks for over a century, and almost flattened by the Soviets in 1945 - but plenty of older buildings survive, including the imposing Parliament and iconic St Stephen's Basilica. Although a pedant might point out that Budapest has only really existed since 1873; up until then the city's two distinct halves, Buda and Pest, were separate towns.

Don't miss

If you are a music lover, you can’t miss a performance at the Opera House – affordable, and great music in a wonderful building.

Arriving in Prague

Prague, the captivating Czech capital, is arguably Eastern Europe's biggest tourism success story, attracting visitors from far and wide with its handsome architecture, cosmopolitan outlook and truly excellent beer. The castle and the iconic Charles Bridge can get rather busy during the summer high season, but it's easy enough to give the crowds the slip. We recommend ducking into one of the many bars that line the cobbled lanes of the Old Town, or taking a stroll amongst the picturesque palaces and gardens of the Malá Strana district.

Our tip

The Jewish Quarter is fascinating, not least because it was untouched during the War... Ironically it was preserved by the Nazis as a living museum. It’s a great area to stay in too.
