An incredible journey that starts in Istanbul crosses the border and travels through the ancient land of Transylvania past citadels and mosques, churches and cathedrals, towards Budapest and what was the old Austrio-Hungarian Empire. Along the way see old medieval Saxon towns such as Sighisoara and Sibiu, see Plovdiv – the oldest continually inhabited city in Europe that goes back 8000 years, and Bucharest with its mix of styles from ancient to modern.
This tour is a wonderful trip that explores the past cultures and treasures of the Ottoman Empire from Turkey through to Hungary, with time to experience firsthand some of the activities from that era such as Grand Bazaars and Turkish baths, and roman amphitheatres and Romanian village life.
