Itinerary

Day
1-3
Welcome to beautiful Croatia! Visit the stunning Old City of Dubrovnik, marvel at the picturesque white-stoned buildings, and take a boat cruise tour on the glittering Adriatic Sea. Enjoy a day of exploring the country of Montenegro and wandering the medieval cities of Kotor and Budva.
Day
4-5
Visit the soul of Dalmatia, Split. This city is a World Heritage Site, with an abundance of historic places. Visit the ancient city of stone, Trogir, and the nearby village of Klis. Once a medieval stronghold, and the cradle of Croatian horsemanship, Klis is now a Game of Thrones set!
Day
6-7
On the way to Zagreb, we’ll stop at Plitvice National Park. It is the country’s oldest and largest national park, and has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll see why when exploring its magical, natural beauty. In Zagreb, wander the wide boulevards, explore its colorful open-air markets in Dolac, and try the best dishes of Croatian cuisine.
Day
8-10
Welcome to Hungary! We’ll visit the largest lake in central Europe, Balton Lake, and enjoy the stunning scenery of the water and the surrounding volcanic hills. Compare the contrasting architecture of the two sides of the city – the Buda side and the Pest side, on either side of the river. Take the chance to explore this city's stunning thermal spas. We finish our adventures in Budapest with a sunset cruise down the Danube River.
Day
11-12
Explore Uzhorod, a Ukrainian city, which has long been a border town, influenced by neighbouring Slovakia and Hungary. Feel its multicultural vibe and its unique blend of cultures. Discover historic Mukahevo with its impressive fortress. Enjoy a traditional evening of local folk music!
Day
13-14
Travel up into the mystic Carpathian Mountains, past sweeping forests, flowing rivers and raging waterfalls. Experience local culture as you witness its rich traditions and hear of its whimsical superstitions. Then, get ready to be immersed into the customs of these people through a Cobblestone exclusive, because you are invited to a Boyko wedding!
Day
15-18
We finish our border city journey in Lviv – a place that has adapted the influences of its many occupants to become the city it is today! Enjoy the quaint charm of Lviv, where many have fallen in love with its laid-back character, incredible food, outdoor markets, and cobblestoned streets.
