Rising Nations Ripe for Discovery

The hip and historic countries of Central and East Europe were hidden from view under the blanket of Soviet influence for much of the 20th century. Since then their varied and abundant pleasures have gradually been “discovered” by travelers: gorgeous countryside, congenial people, charming medieval villages, and rococo capitals all await you here. Though this region is growing ever more familiar, there are still discoveries to be made.

Traveler Reviews

  • "After a trip like this, a cruise looks pale in comparison. We feel we’ve experienced these countries and not just given them a cursory glance. Visiting some of the lesser-known areas added greatly to the whole experience. Getting to know the guides so well was an added benefit... A tough act to follow!"
