DETAILED ITINERARY

DAY 1: BUDAPEST, HUNGARY – tour starts

Welcome to Budapest, the capital of Hungary! ‘Few European cities can rival Budapest’s glorious setting astride the Danube river. Its two sides, Buda and Pest, were separate cities until 1873, and they retain their own distinct identities, the former run through with ancient history, the latter noisier, earthier and more cosmopolitan. In Buda you’ll find royal palaces, Ottoman-era spas and wooded hills, while over in Pest you can pore over a clutch of fine museums, fantastic art nouveau buildings and a resurgent Jewish quarter.’, says The Guardian.
Upon arrival to your hotel some time to freshen up. In the evening meet your Tour guide at your hotel for orientation briefing, followed by a lovely welcome dinner.

Meals: dinner
Overnight: Budapest

DAY 2: BUDAPEST TWIN CITY

Start your day with a panoramic drive in Hungary’s lovely capital, UNESCO listed Budapest, featuring the historic Buda Castle District, where you can take a photo at Fisherman’s Bastion and the 500-year-old St. Matthias Church. Cross Danube river, pass Hungarian State Opera House and the neo-classical structure of St. Stephen’s Basilica, one of the two tallest buildings in Budapest. Continue to Heroes’ Square. There you’ll see the impressive statues of Hungary’s most important national leaders. After taking a walk through the City Park, beloved by locals and visitors alike, you’ll come to the Vajdahunyad Castle, constructed in 1896 as part of the Millennial Exhibition, which celebrated 1,000 years since the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin. Spend some time at Vaci Street, a strip well-known for its shops and trinkets. Maybe take a walk along the Danube Promenade, taking in the panorama of Gellert Hill and the Citadel, while snapping a photo of the Chain Bridge. Your local guide’s insight of the city and suggestions what to do in your free time will come in handy for afternoon/evening at leisure.

Meals: breakfast
Overnight: Budapest

DAY 3: BUDAPEST – TIHANY – HEVIZ

Depart from Budapest to Heviz with a stop at Tihany. Lake Balaton is the essence of Hungarian rural beauty. Hungary’s version of Provance. You will enjoy the scenic ride while passing tiny villages with century-old whitewashed houses and admire amazing formations of nature. Visit the pearl of Balaton, Tihany Peninsula. Thanks to the special attributes of its landscape, its geological specifics, its diverse flora and fauna, it was the first designated landscape protection area of the country. Visit Tihany Abbey, a Benedictine monastery established at Tihany in the Kingdom of Hungary almost 1000 years ago. Continue towards Heviz, your miniature spa paradise for the rest of the day. The town of Heviz is located near Lake Heviz, the world’s second-largest thermal lake. The water breaks out from a spring cave, with a temperature of 40 °C (104 °F) and even on the coldest winter days doesn’t drop below 24 °C (75 °F). That makes bathing in the lake possible year round. The lake’s healing properties have been well known for centuries, people lived here even at the end of the Stone Age, but foundations of bath culture were laid by the Romans in the 2nd century. The city and the bath began developing significantly in the 18th century, related to the Festetics family, who started scientific research about using the water for healing. Afternoon at leisure, perhaps try out the healing powers of thermal waters and later in the evening enjoy a lovely dinner at your hotel.

Meals: breakfast, dinner
Overnight: Heviz

DAY 4: HEVIZ – MARIBOR – LJUBLJANA – tour ends

Depart from Heviz to Ljubljana. Stop in Slovenia’s second largest city, Maribor; European Capital of Culture of 2012. Maribor is a home of the oldest – 400 years old – vine in the world. We will have a lovely stroll through this city of wine, friendly people, great sights and monuments before we get to our final destination of the tour – Ljubljana. Centrally located capital city of Slovenia has a feel of metropolis with small-town friendliness. With over 50,000 students it is a city with young vibe and great respect toward seniors. With over 10,000 cultural events that take place in the city every year, Ljubljana is called a city of culture. Boosting with rich history; from the legacy of Roman Emona; through to the Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau to modern Ljubljana that was shaped by the strong personal style of Jože Plečnik, it is also a home of one of the oldest philharmonic orchestra in the world. By arrival to Ljubljana your tour ends.
