This enchanting European river cruise from Bucharest to Amsterdam is truly an adventure. In Transylvania visit Peles Castle in Sinaia-considered one of the most beautiful in Europe. Then, enjoy guided sightseeing of Brasov and a visit to Bran Castle of Dracula fame. In Romania’s lively capital, Bucharest, you’ll see the Arc de Triomphe, and the historical Royal Palace Square. Travel to Fetesti and set sail for the mouth of the Danube River.

Visit the exquisite Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and enjoy guided sightseeing in Constanta and Bulgaria’s ancient capital of Veliko Trnovo. Visit the Ethnographical Museum and Church of the Nativity in Arbanassi and take pictures of Belogradchik’s eclectic group of rock formations and the spectacular scenery of the Iron Gates.

Your Danube River cruise takes you to the capitals of four countries: Belgrade, Serbia; Budapest, Hungary; Bratislava, Slovakia; and Vienna, Austria, where Local Guides will show you the highlights and you’ll have time to explore on your own. In the heart of the Wachau wine region, go on a guided walk of charming Dürnstein, and later visit Melk’s famous Benedictine Abbey. In Germany, there’s guided sightseeing in Passau, Regensburg, Nuremberg, Bamberg, and Würzburg. Cruise the Main Danube Canal, and pass through the dramatic Rhine Gorge-the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water.

This river cruise vacation concludes in Holland’s popular, modern capital of Amsterdam where you get a unique perspective of the city on a canal cruise along the elegant Grachten lined with homes dating back to the city’s “Golden Age.” Experience the Danube River like never before, with the special experiences and discoveries awaiting from the Black Sea to the North Sea-beginning with the legendary landscape and stories of mysterious and beautiful Transylvania.
