Could it be because there is an imposing castle on every hill? The Czech Republic welcomes us with Budweis, the city of beer, and with Cesky Krumlov, a medieval town so picturesque that it will bring tears to your eyes. And then Prague: words can’t describe it; you have to see it to believe. Dresden, destroyed during WWII, rose again from the ashes, while Cracow, the secret capital of Poland, escaped undamaged and evolved into the most beautiful city east of Paris.
Through the Tatras, the world’s smallest alpine mountain range, we head to amazing Budapest for our fourth and last rest day. Then it’s back to Vienna, but not without visiting the very place where the Iron Curtain began to crumble, back in 1989. As we said, buckets full of history. And plenty of corners!
