Central Europe is the crossroads of a continent and has the castles, palaces and monuments to prove it. This 12-day tour offers the chance to get a buzz in contemporary Berlin and connect with history in medieval Český Krumlov. You'll visit marketplaces, grand opera houses and gothic cathedrals for a taste of culture that transcends eras. And while full of included activities, you have plenty of free time to make this region your own. Empires may rise and fall but the spirit of this region is immutable.
