The Heart of Europe
Romantic castles and church spires dot the rolling countryside, historic monuments stand proud in cobble stone squares, sun drenched vineyards decorate the hills, and rivers snake through vibrant cities and quaint towns. From soaring mountains to legendary forests, travelling this beautiful region is a breeze, with international airports, a great rail system and excellent roads.
Each country has unique cultural traditions and there is a rich history weaved across the borders. You see influences from the Roman Empire, the Ottoman Empire and not so long ago WWII and the Cold War. Some more eastern areas you may feel quite adventurous exploring, where English isn’t widely heard, yet the locals are sincerely welcoming.
You can zigzag through the main cities and their old towns in a couple of weeks, but also consider the small towns and beautiful unspoiled nature reserves.
