The capital cities of central Europe

There aren’t many places in the world where you can visit four national capitals in a day by road or rail. Hungary, Austria, Slovakia and Czech Republic are all huddled together for warmth at the heart of Europe, so why not do them all justice and put their greatest cities together for a two-week holiday?

You can start off in Budapest where an early dip in one of the city’s natural thermal spas will fortify you for the trip ahead. These are no quiet indoor affairs – they are huge, lively places constructed in majestic nineteenth century architecture. And the finest of all is Gellert Furdo where you can soak away in the open air while half of the city splashes about you.

Then, when you arrive in Vienna, you will hear the sound of cakes calling you. The city is splendid with wide boulevards and big-block imperial architecture, but turn your back on it all and ensconce yourself in a coffee house with big windows to see everyone strolling past. For the real Viennese experience, it has to be sachertorte, a local chocolate cake so special to the city it has its own official day: (5 December, if you want to stop by).

Form there, it’s just a few miles to Bratislava, a charming little place that always seems surprised when people visit. There’s something delightfully unassuming about the Slovak capital and that is probably one reason it has remained intact and unspoiled by hoards of tourists. You can walk little cobbled streets and drop into old bookshops and antiques stores for souvenirs.

And finally, it’s Prague with the jaw-dropping architecture of Wenceslas Square. But the city isn’t all about the past – Prague is the hottest spot east of Rome and if you have any energy left at the end of your trip, the little music bars and big nightclubs will wring the last drops from you.

A colourful and historic city that is great for city breaks and can easily entertain longer stays. Magical Cappadocia’s landscape was formed around 30 million years ago when volcanic activity left the region blanketed with ash. The ash solidified into what is known as ‘volcanic tuff’, this is an easily eroded material and as it wore away over many years, it left the distinctive rock formations seen in Cappadocia today. Gulet Cruises in Turkey are a fabulous experience in a beautiful region of the world. Turkey’s coastline is the longest in the Mediterranean. Taking an authentic Gulet Cruise is the perfect way to explore it, meandering at a slow pace and stopping off en route. This is a great way to explore the region’s many hidden treasures and sleepy backwaters, enjoying perfect serenity at sea and making friends along the way. We offer a range of carefully selected itineraries which visit the most unspoilt parts of the region, allowing you to experience the local culture and explore ancient ruins.
