Have you ever wondered what it would be like to leave your old world behind and just experience an old world of times past?
A time to forget the hustle and bustle of modern life where our digital age just does not allow us the time to be free from life’s constraints!
Would you want to go on a voyage of discovery and find places that are simply reflections from a long gone age, filled with authentic architecture of past times and steeped in tradition?
To just stand on a place and soak up its past and wonder what and who has stood there before you?
The beautiful Danube River, running from Nuremberg to Budapest, is one way of experiencing the delights of ‘Old Europe’ where ancient Abbeys, beautiful palaces, and historic landmarks can be discovered and explored, taking you back in essence to where it all happened in ancient times.
The famous River Danube originates in the Black Forests of Germany and flows through ten countries – Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Moldova, Ukraine, and Romania before reaching the Black Sea.
The scenery varies considerably along the route and includes medieval monasteries perched on hills, fairy-tale castles, many vineyards and chocolate box towns and cities. And it is the towns and cities that proivde much of the colour and excitement of the Danube – Linz, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, and Belgrade – indeed the Danube has more capital cities on its banks than any other river and it is often this variety of cities mixed with stunning scenery that accounts for much of its popularity.
Go on – lose yourself in this magical world and get a taste of what it would have been like a long, long time ago!!
