Travel to three amazing capital cities with us. We start our trip with the beautiful Vienna. Apart from being regarded as the City of Music because of its musical legacy. Vienna is also known for its high quality of life. In 2018 and 2019 it ranked as the number one spot for the world's most liveable cities. During your visit you will get to see the beautiful Schönbrunn Palace. The Rococo palace is one of the most important architectural, cultural and historic monuments of the country. The history of the palace and its vast gardens spans over 300 years, reflecting the changing tastes, interests and aspirations of successive Habsburg monarchs. 

Next we will visit Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. Bordering Austria and Hungary, it is the only national capital that borders two sovereign states. The city's history has been influenced by people of many nations and religions, including Austrians, Bulgarians, Croats, Czechs, Germans, Hungarians, Jews, Serbs and Slovaks. Most historical buildings are concentrated in the Old Town. Bratislava's Town Hall is a complex of three buildings erected in the 14-15th centuries and now hosts he Bratislava City Museum. Michael's Gate is the only gate that has been preserved from the medieval fortifications and it ranks among the oldest of the town's buildings. One of the most prominent structures in the city is Bratislava Castle, situated on a plateau 85 meters (279 ft) above the Danube. It was not until the 10th century that the castle was built in stone. The castle was converted into a Gothic anti-Hussite fortress under Sigismund of Luxemburg in 1430, became a Renaissance castle in 1562, and was rebuilt in 1649 in the baroque style. Under Queen Maria Theresa, the castle became a prestigious royal seat. In 1811, the castle was inadvertently destroyed by fire and lay in ruins until the 1950s, when i was rebuilt mostly in its former Theresian style.  

Our last destination will be Budapest. Budapest is divided by the Danube river. Buda is build on the higher river terraces and hills of the western side, while the considerably larger Pest spreads out on a flat and featureless sand plain on the river's opposite bank. The central area of the city along the Danube River is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has several notable monuments, including the Hungarian Parliament (which is the third largest parliament building in the world), Buda Castle, Fisherman's Bastion, Gresham Palace, Széchenyi Chain Bridge, Matthias Church and the Liberty Statue. Other famous landmarks include Anrássy Avenue, St. Stephen's Basilica, Heroes's Square and the Great Market  Hall. On 140 sqm you will find the best known Hungarian goods and of cause a lot of food booths with Hungarian specialties. After your sightseeing trip you will have some spare time to stroll through the market hall. 

Budapest is also well known for its spas and gained its reputation as a city of spas in the 1920s. The Széchenyi Baths, which we will also visit within our sightseeing tour, are one of the largest bathing complexes in all Europe, and the only "old" medicinal baths o be found in the Pest side of the city. The indoor medicinal baths date from 1913 and the outdoor pools from 1927. There is an atmosphere of grandeur about the whole place with the bright, largest pools resembling aspects associated with Roman baths, the smaller bath tubs reminding one of the bathing culture of the Greeks, and the saunas and diving pools borrowed from traditions emanating in northern Europe.
