Why Travel to Central Europe
Imagine a world where music escapes from every open window, where opulent castles rest against a backdrop of dramatic mountains, and where concerts are held amidst the glow of gilded ballrooms. You can almost picture the coronations of kings, and hear the sounds of Chopin carried across the broad Mazovian plains.
Traveling to Central Europe is a walk through history. Sometimes grim, but always tempered with unparalleled beauty, the story of the past is told in every detail of the present. It’s in the clatter of hoofs on cobblestones from a passing doroshka in Warsaw and in the easy smile of an old woman with a brightly colored kerchief in Budapest. There’s a tale in the melodies of Mozart that sound from the opera houses, churches and belle epoques of Vienna and the cloak-and-dagger talk of Prague’s infamous dissident cafe.
