Eastern Europe Top Destinations

Prague

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is one of the most beautiful cities - not just of Eastern Europe, but of the whole continent. Situated on the banks of the Vltava River, it is visited by millions of people every year.

Sarajevo

Ferhadija Street, the city’s pedestrian mall, is today lined with charming cafés, restaurants and shops sporting world-famous brands. The city’s most fascinating area is Baščaršija, the bazaar quarter, in whose shops all the goods normally to be found in a Moslem bazaar can be found.


Sofia
Sofia is ine of Europe’s oldest cities - founded some 7000 years ago. The city’s historic monuments faithfully reflect the mixture of Roman, Turkish, Byzantine and Bulgarian cultures to which it was exposed over the hundreds of years.


Tallinn
Tallinn is not just Estonia’s capital, and financial and cultural centre, but it is also one of the Baltic cities which has mellowed best with age. Tallinn boasts the region’s best preserved medieval city-centre, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Once a rich member of the Hanseatic League, the city has had a very colourful past –  historically it has belonged to Denmark, Sweden, The Order of Teutonic Knights, the Russian Empire, and later, also to the Soviet Union.

Kiev
Straddling the two banks of the Dnepr River, Kiev is the Ukraine’s capital, as well as its economic and cultural centre. The city’s terrain varies between hilly on the right-bank of the Dnepr, to being flat on the left-bank. The most famous tourist attraction in the old part of the city is the 11th century St. Sophia Cathedral with its magnificent frescos and mosaics inside.


Vienna
Extending along the banks of the Danube River, Austria’s capital served for a long time as the seat of the Holy Roman Empire, and of the Habsburg-Hungarian Monarchy. Rich in historic monuments, Vienna is often also referred to as “The City of Music”


Cracow
Cracow is Poland’s richest city in terms of the number of its historic sights and monuments – at the same time it is one of the most beautiful and charming cities of Central Europe. For more than 500 years, Cracow served as the country’s capital and as the royal residence; with a population approaching 800 thousand, the city today is Poland’s centre for the arts, tourism and culture.


Belgrade
Belgrade’s most important attraction – the famous medieval Kalemegdan fortress. The city consists of 3 districts: Novi Beograd, which is the modern part of the city and the central shopping area; Zemun, which was originally an independent settlement, later joined to Belgrade; and Stari Grad, the old part of the city.


Riga
Riga’s historic inner-city is a real treasure-box for the visiting tourists, and it has been placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Besides its medieval buildings (St. Peter’s Church, Riga Cathedral), its richly decorated burgher houses also make the atmosphere of the old-city unforgettable.


Budapest
Located on the banks of the River Danube , Budapest is the capital of Hungary and the largest city in the country. Old Town of Buda Castle is Budapest’s primary tourist attraction. It has been on UNESCO’S World Heritage List since 1987. The most important sights in the castle are the Matthias Church , the Fishermen’s Bastion  and the Royal Palace.

Ljubljana
Formerly known as Laibach, Ljubljana is the youngest capital on the Continent. The castle is one of Ljubljana’s main tourist attractions, providing an all-round panorama of the city and its environs.

Vilnius
Picturesque Vilnius, Lithuania’s capital, located at the junction of the Vilija and Vilejka Rivers, is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities of East-Europe. Almost universally Baroque in style, the old-city has been placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
