More about Austria

Officially known as the Republic of Austria, there's a lot more to discover about this landlocked European country than schnitzel, strudel and the Sound of Music, but that's still part of the fun. Bordered by the Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, you can understand why Austria is so culturally rich. There are a couple of things you might not know about Austrians, like they are the top recyclers in the world, they love their coffee and enjoy a rich coffee house culture, plus, much like Mexico, they celebrate death and there's even a funeral museum in Vienna. From fine arts to classical music and historic monuments, there's much to experience in Austria!

More about Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is located right in the middle of Europe. Traditionally it was segmented into three lands,Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia in the south, and since 2016 it adopted the shortened name of Czechia. It ranks amongst the top ten safest countries in the world to live and happens to have the most castles in Europe. In fact, in the capital city of Prague you'll find the largest ancient castle in the world. Once the seat of power for kings and emperors, today Prague Castle is the official office of the President of the Czech Republic.

More about Germany

Germany is one of the most densely populated counties in the world, but it doesn't feel that way thanks to its forested mountains, magnificent rivers and well-planned cities. Berlin is a vibrant capital with a lively art scene and cafe culture. Munich is renowned for its annual Oktoberfest beer festival and Frankfurt is a fascinating blend of historic buildings and modern skyscrapers. Cruising the mighty Danube River you'll experience the charm of regional villages and rich culture of cities like Cologne and Nuremberg. There's so much to discover about this country that has its own strong personality as well as influences from its nine neighbouring countries.

More about Hungary

The landlocked country of Hungary shares its borders with Austria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. The capital of Budapest is a great city to explore, with its medieval Castle Hill, Fisherman's Bastion and impressive Parliament Building. It's split by the Danube River and many European river cruises either start of end in Budapest. And if you're wondering, Hungarian goulash really is from Hungary. The tasty soup made from beef and vegetables and flavoured with paprika is known locally as Gulyásleves (gulyás is herdsman and leves is soup in Hungarian); because it originates from a dish cooked by the cattlemen of the Great Hungarian Plain.
