Discover Eastern Europe

Tours to Eastern Europe showcase the history, culture and outstanding natural beauty of this diverse region, with fascinating guided excursions designed to enrich each holiday.

History lovers will enjoy delving into the region's fascinating past. Over the centuries, many empires have ruled Bulgaria, including the Romans and the Ottomans. The country initially struggled following the fall of the Communist regime, but today it is fast becoming one of Eastern Europe's most popular tourist destinations. Bulgaria offers an intriguing mix of architectural styles, from the stunning neo-Renaissance National Assembly Building in the capital of Sofia, to the impressive Roman amphitheatre in Serdica, discovered in 2004.

Without a doubt Budapest's waterfront is iconic, with the spectacular Hungarian Parliament taking centre stage. Just a stone's throw from the Danube river is Buda, home to the ornate Fisherman's Bastion and grand Buda Castle.

The Romanian capital of Bucharest, founded by Vlad the Impaler, is also renowned for its architecture, including the neo-classical Opera House and Romanian Orthodox Church of St Stavropoleos. Another stunning capital is Prague, which straddles the Vltava river. The medieval centre is a maze of cobbled lanes and ancient courtyards, and there are five historical districts linked by the landmark Charles Bridge.

Known as the 'Cradle of the Balkans', Albania and Macedonia offer incredible UNESCO-listed sites and well-preserved churches. Located on the shores of picturesque Lake Ohrid, the UNESCO-listed city of Ohrid has an array of beautiful churches including the Church of St. Sophia, while UNESCO-listed Butrint in southern Albania is renowned for its impressive Roman ruins.

Moldova, sandwiched between Romania and the Ukraine, is a hidden gem bursting with architectural treasures. The capital, Chisinau has an impressive Triumphal Arch commemorating Russia's victory over the Ottoman Empire during the 19th century. Further south is the republic of Transnistria which has retained a strong Soviet character.

Novi Sad straddles the legendary River Danube and is Serbia's second largest city. It is a treasure trove, with the magnificent Petrovaradin Fortress dominating the skyline and the historic Stari Grand offering a plethora of museums. The diverse capital of Bratislava also has interesting museums, including the Slovak National Museum, with exhibits documenting Slovakia's interesting past.

The Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes connecting the East with the West. It passed through Armenia, a country with a turbulent past, and Azerbaijan, a fusion of cultures as a result of being frequented by traders and travellers. Its capital, exotic Baku, has a charming 10th-century UNESCO-listed Old City with narrow alleyways and caravanserais.

Eastern Europe is renowned for its architecturally-rich cities, but it also has stunning mountain ranges and an array of hiking trails, just waiting to be explored. Northern Bulgaria is dominated by the flat Danube Valley, with the south being occupied by highlands and plains. The Balkan Mountains cut through the centre of this intriguing country and offer avid hikers endless walking opportunities. The beaches along the Black Sea coast are perfect for a gentle stroll and the ski resorts cater for adrenaline-fuelled holidays.

Georgia is one of the world's oldest Christian nations and boasts rolling green valleys, vast vineyards and incredible natural wonders. Martvili Canyon in the Samegrelo region has stunning cascading waterfalls and was once a bathing spot for the Dadiani aristocracy.

Slovakia is just a stone's throw from the beautiful Small Carpathians mountain range, perfect for a ramble, while a climb up Sighisoara's Clock Tower in Romania promises spectacular panoramic views, but it's not for the faint hearted! Last but not least is Poland. From rugged mountains to the sandy beaches on the Baltic coast, and the stunning wilderness of the Bialowieza National Park, the country is perfect for outdoor pursuits.

In addition to a rich history, myriad of architectural styles, and stunning scenery, Eastern Europe has been the inspiration for greats works of literature. North of the Romanian capital of Bucharest, high in the breathtaking mountains, is the famous Bran Castle, known as Dracula's Castle. Its striking orange spires emerge from verdant forest. It has long been associated with Dracula as it is the only castle in Transylvania which fits Bram Stoker's description of Dracula's Castle.


Highlights of Eastern Europe

  • Sofia, Bulgaria

    Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria and has a superb mix of museums, art galleries and parks. There is definitely something for everyone in this fascinating city, steeped in history. Onion-domed churches and Ottoman mosques dominate the skyline, alongside the impressive National Assembly Building, used by the Bulgarian Parliament. Excavations have unearthed incredible Roman ruins, dating back almost 200 years, from when the city was called Serdica. These include an impressive Roman amphitheatre, which was one of the largest in the Roman Empire.

  • Budapest, Hungary
