The name of this river cruise says it all-this multi-stop, multicultural journey through several countries in Central and Eastern Europe is grand indeed! With stops in the most intriguing cities along the Danube River and exciting excursions farther inland, you'll be immersed in historical sights, cultural events, splendid scenery, and sumptuous cuisine-a little to a lot of something for everyone!

Begin this adventure in beautiful Prague, Czech Republic. Prague is a 1,200-year-old city preserved in time with many historical treasures, such as Old Town's Astronomical Clock, built in 1410, and once the envy of all Europe. Board your river cruise vessel in Nuremberg, Germany, and visit this thousand-year-old city, full of history, with a Local Guide. On to Regensburg, one of Germany's best preserved medieval cities, where guided sightseeing shows you the splendid architecture of the Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall), Porta Pretoria, and much more. In Melk, visit Austria's majestic 11th-century Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe's largest monasteries, and take in the picturesque scenery as you sail through the Wachau Valley before you are drawn to the romantic sounds of Vienna, the "City of Music." St. Stephen's Cathedral, the impressive Hofburg Palace, and the Vienna Opera are all sights you'll see on your guided tour. Sail to Budapest and explore Hungary's lively capital before going on an excursion to Pécs. Established by the Romans in the 2nd century, you'll visit underground burial chambers with fascinating murals, now part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Bulgaria, visit Belogradchik's eclectic rock formations, the ancient capital Veliko Tarnovo, and Arbanassi with its Church of the Nativity housing an outstanding collection of frescoes.

To round out this timeless European River Cruise, a stay in Romania's vibrant capital of Bucharest is a must. Known as the "Paris of the East," a local expert will show you many of its historical treasures. From Bucharest, take an overnight trip to Transylvania to visit Bran Castle, of Dracula Fame, and the city of Brasov. Also visit Peles Castle, located in the Carpathian Mountains, and considered to be the most breathtaking castle in Europe.
