Eastern Europe Tours to Germany, Poland & More - Globus®

The Best of Eastern Europe (RO)

14 Day Tour from Berlin to Berlin

2018 Tour Details

When you think of an escorted Eastern Europe vacation, what comes to mind? Perhaps it's visiting old churches and seeing historic sites that have been standing for many centuries. Perhaps you think of visiting cities bombed in World War II and restored to their former splendor. Or maybe you think of learning about the counties’ rich histories. If so, this Best of Eastern Europe guided tour includes all of that and more with overnights in Berlin, Warsaw, Krakow, Budapest, Vienna, and Prague.

Your guided sightseeing in the capitals includes the must-see attractions. Visit Berlin’s Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, today a symbol of reconciliation; the medieval Old Quarter and the 14th-century Cathedral of St. John in Warsaw; St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna; the Hradčany Castle grounds and Astronomical Clock, built in 1410, in Prague; the Kazimierz Quarter and St Mary’s Church in Krakow; and Budapest’s 13th-century Matthias Coronation Church, coronation spot of several Hungarian monarchs.

You'll also visit Jasna Góra, the monastery near Czestochowa, an important pilgrimage site. Its Black Madonna, a painting of the Virgin Mary, is a symbol of the country and venerated as the "Queen of Poland." You'll stop in Auschwitz to observe what is left of its concentration camp.

You’ll also have special experiences in some of the smaller towns as well. You'll enjoy a special lunch in Telc, one of the most beautiful towns in the Czech Republic, and taste a Trdelnik rolled pastry in Prague.

All of this and more—including a private Chopin concert in his hometown of Warsaw—are included on this fabulous Eastern Europe guided tour.
