Setting sail from 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.

Arriving in Bucharest

Once known as the 'Paris of the East', it's fair to say that modern Bucharest bears some pretty ugly architectural scars from the 22-year dictatorship of the late Nicolae Ceauşescu. Of all the concrete monstrosities bequeathed by Ceauşescu, the enormous Palace of Parliament is both the most grotesque and the most fascinating, a monument to one man's staggering vanity. Looks aren't everything though, and Romania's capital has emerged from the ashes of communism as a feisty, dynamic city with some lovely parks, interesting museums and a lively nightlife.

Don't miss

The Old Town will reveal to you some of Bucharest's pre-communist treasures.
