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.

Our tip

Hungarian cuisine is vastly underrated; don’t visit Budapest without trying goulash, the paprika-infused national dish.

Arriving in Vilshofen

Vilshofen an der Donau is known as the 'Little Town of Three Rivers', situated at the point where the Vils and Wolfach flow into the Danube. At its heart is the delightful old town, home to several interesting buildings including the Church of St John the Baptist, the Benedictine Abbey of Schweiklberg and the iconic clock tower.

What we love

The Crystal River Cruises difference is all in the pace of life - slowed down itineraries, plenty of overnights in port, and leisurely hours on board to make the most of the captivating scenery. Add to that the highest crew to passenger ratio on any European river cruise vessel, with crew trained to Crystal's usual high standards, and you have a winner.
