Welcome to Hungary! We will start the tour off in beautiful Budapest - 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.
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!
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!
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.
