Eastern Europe Vacation with Stops in Budapest and Prague
Three Days in Budapest, Hungary
Located on the banks of the Danube—one of Europe’s most-important waterways—Budapest is actually two cities rolled into one: Buda and Pest, united in 1873. The capital of Hungary, Budapest is frequently cited as one of the world’s most-beautiful cities. You’ll have three days to explore the city on your own. In the Castle District, you can roam between centuries-old buildings, including the Matthias Church and the Royal Palace. Be sure to leave enough time for a soak in one of Budapest’s famed thermal baths, and to walk past the neo-Renaissance architecture and quaint cafes on Andrássy Avenue.
For an additional fee, you can sign up for optional tours of the city, Danube Bend, or Budapest by night.
Three Days in Prague, Czech Republic
About 325 miles northwest of Budapest is Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. Fodor’s describes the city as “beautiful in a way that makes even the most jaded traveler stop and snap pictures.” You have three days to wander its charming cobblestone streets and historic quarters. Pop over to the National Marionette Theatre to catch a traditional puppet performance of Don Giovanni, an opera by Mozart. At the circa-880 AD Prague Castle—situated atop a hill—you’ll have an aerial view of the Prague, and you’ll see why it’s nicknamed “City of a Thousand Spires.”
