One of the many amazing things about Europe is how close together all the countries are. It’s unbelievably easy to travel from one country to the next within a day or night. This is especially true in Central Europe, where all of the countries and city hubs like Vienna, Prague, and Budapest are all so close. Each country, however, has their own history, and unique qualities that make them special. Each country and each city tell a different story. Each one of those countries have seen the both rise and fall of society, especially during the two world wars. Today, these countries are thriving, providing travelers and tourists some of the greatest historical and modern destinations to visit in Europe.
Vienna was once the epicentre for medieval worship, dating back thousands of years ago. This is one of the reasons for the gothic architecture of the famous hot spots in the city. Some of these areas in Vienna include the Hofburg Palace, St. Stephan’s Cathedral, Schonbrunn Palace and more. All of these sights helped created what Vienna is today.
Prague, much like Vienna, highlights the medieval period, showcasing gothic and baroque buildings around the city center. The city is best known for the Old Town Square, the 600-year-old astronomical clock, the synagogues and more. Budapest, once two different cities, Buda and Pest, converged together after in 1873. Again, like Prague and Vienna, the city represents the medieval period, showcasing gothic style cathedrals and synagogues throughout the city. Budapest has a strong Jewish history planted within the city, as it saw destruction of the Jewish society in World War Two, but also the rise and restructuring of the city after the war. There are some of the best kept synagogues in Budapest, helping encapsulate and showcase the Jewish heritage throughout the city.

We offer a variety of tours for all of our clients to see the worldful history and modern day life of these historical cities and countries.
