Discovering the Heart of Europe from Prague to Vienna

Picture Bohemia’s wild Vltava River. A rushing stream speckled with lazy rafts. Or the blue Danube. Bordered by steep vine-covered slopes. Rivers are life in Central Europe, but you won’t stop there. You’ll cycle along peaceful family-friendly bike paths. Hike wooded mountainsides. Savor the taste of a locally made cheese or a perfect ripe apricot. Two countries. Endless ways to experience them. Why settle for just one?
