Propel yourself into the wonderful world of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. Nestled on the Vltava River and nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires", Prague oozes opulence from every street corner. Dotted with bridges which leapfrog from one riverbank to another, not to mention soaring steeples and spires brushing against the golden glow of the Czech sky, Prague is full of wonder and magic. Wander its Old Square, bustling and atmospheric, gaze up at its colorful Baroque architecture, a sight to behold, and cross Charles Bridge, lined with statues of Catholic saints which date all the way back to 1402. Then, feast your eyes on its Gothic churches, rich with history and architectural eye-candy, before visiting the medieval Astronomical Clock.
After rubbing shoulders with Prague’s historic treasures, you'll make your way to Vienna, the capital of Austria, for a two nights' stay surrounded by artistic and intellectual legacy. A city which once witnessed the musical prowess of Mozart and Beethoven and the wisdom of Sigmund Freud, Vienna attracts culture vultures and history buffs alike. Explore the Imperial Palace of the Schönbrunn, expansive and honey-colored, and lose yourself in star-studded museums displaying works of the likes of Gustav Klimt.
The last leg of your trip will see you step foot into Budapest, the capital of Hungary and a modern day fairy tale. Chain Bridge connects the hilly terrain of Buda with the flat plains of Pest, and the Old Town, poised on Castle Hill with its own funicular, is home to the History Museum. When you’re not brushing up on your history, visit Trinity Square, boasting the 13th century Matthias Church and the turrets of the Fishermen’s Bastion and their sweeping views.
