More About Central And Eastern Europe
Eastern Europe Tours & Central Europe Travel by Adventures Abroad: In the continual search of culture, history, scenic beauty, and quaint villages - there is no better destination than Eastern Europe. With ancient ruins around nearly every corner, snow-capped mountains with untouched forests, and friendly locals bursting into song at colourful festivals, Eastern European tours have become the choice for intrepid travellers who like elegant European charms mixed with an edgier contemporary history.
Glamorous cities with endless photo opportunities await in places such as Prague, the gothic capital of Czech Republic, a city that is often compared to Florence and Rome for its beauty and one that Goethe once called the prettiest gemstone in the crown of the world. Nearby is the UNESCO-designated historic centre of Cesky Krumlov, the baroque and gothic beauty makes it perhaps the most exquisite city in the country.
In Bucharest, Romania, it is thought to remind travellers as a 'Paris of the East.' A historically fascinating destination, Romania is home to over 2,000 fresco-brimming monasteries, dozens of picture-perfect castles and countless fortified villages. Elegant and opulent, the splendour of many eastern European capitals are apparent day or night.
Historically, each region on our Eastern European tours features a different culture with many customs unique to the region. Folkloric festivals come alive throughout the year, with religion often playing a central role in everyday traditions. Orthodox Christianity, Roman Catholic, Muslim and Jewish communities add their own influences, however, pagan traditions still remain in small pockets.
In Albania, our Eastern European tours expose the intriguing contemporary culture with a fabulous collection of wondrous mosques as well as innumerable archaeological artifacts that detail almost 3,000 years of history. While in Macedonia, we have the chance to spend time exploring the World Heritage Site of Ohrid across the multi-hued, blue waters of the lake Ohrid to learn about the country's fascinating history with trips to 11th-century fortresses, centuries-old Byzantine churches and cathedrals.
There is hardly a destination more bursting in history than that of Greece or Turkey. Ancient cities, sprawling archaeological sites, rugged coastlines, impossibly blue waters and sugar white beaches, these two destinations have it all.
Moving north, in countries once behind the iron curtain, there is the chance to see regions rebuilding at a rapid pace as well as historical marvels that have remained for centuries. Take a five-kilometre journey below the Earth's surface to see some subterranean lakes in the Wieliczka Salt Mines in Poland. Wander the stone cobbled streets of Riga, Latvia, or marvel at the ancient architecture after walking along the rows of Baroque buildings in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Within the natural beauty of Eastern Europe, Slovenia is emerging as a prime spot with glacial lakes, lush green valleys and majestic mountain ranges. Nearby the 16 lakes connected in a series of cascading waterfalls, the Plitvice Lakes is sure to awe.
Whether arriving for the lessons in history, the chance to witness unique cultures come alive in folk festivals, or marvel at quaint villages in stunning locations, Eastern Europe is sure to leave an impression and the desire to return again.
