5 Night Cruise sailing from Engelhartszell roundtrip aboard A-Rosa Donna.

5 Night Cruise sailing from Engelhartszell roundtrip aboard A-Rosa Donna.

People have celebrated the Danube in song, dedicated poems to it and written fairy tales about it. So when you are on the deck of the A-ROSA watching the wonders of nature and cities glide by, don’t be surprised if you find yourself writing unusually grandiloquent postcards and text messages to your friends back home. This happens a lot. This trip will enable you to take home European history not only as a store of knowledge but also as a heartfelt sense of life. Vienna and Budapest, the former capitals of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, are positively overflowing with stunning Baroque architecture and the finest Hungarian art nouveau. And, despite being surrounded by all this old splendour, both cities seem to keep getting younger and more dynamic. Nonconformist types will be thrilled by a visit to the self-confident Slovakian capital, Bratislava. While you’re there, make sure you order bryndzové halušky! This national dish is made of noodles with sheep’s cheese. It’s simple but really good.

Highlights of this cruise:

Vienna
Vienna, the capital of Austria, is known as the city on the blue Danube, but today the main river is actually detached from the inner city and only the Danube Channel runs through the city. Vienna is still one of Europe’s most seductive cities, however, and is worth a visit not just for its incomparable cultural treasures, the pomp and elegance of former glory, but also for its traditional coffee houses.

Budapest
Budapest once consisted of three parts: Buda, Obuda and Pest. Buda meaning “oven” was the historical upper city with the castle. The part Obuda meaning “old oven” was the part between the hill and the Danube. And Pest on the left-hand side was where most of the population lived. In 1872, these three parts were combined to form a real centre.

Bratislava
Bratislava has been the capital of Slovakia since its independence in 1993. Bratislava was also the capital of Hungary from 1536 to 1784. A visit should begin at the castle, which offers spectacular panoramic views over the "Beauty on the Danube". The Old City presents a fascinating network of attractive squares and winding lanes.
