Day 2 – 4Berlin, Germany
Berlin is a city of history and achievement that rose like a phoenix from the ashes of the Nazi movement and the tumbled stones of the Berlin Wall. Today it brims with fascinating sights from the Brandenburg Gate and the Schloss Charlottenburg to the Berlin Wall and Holocaust Memorials. While in Berlin, a must-see attraction is the remarkable Reichstag. Our guided visit includes the roof terrace and phenomenal glass dome.

And we’ll drive to Potsdam to take in its incredible ensemble of palaces and parks—a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day 9 – 11Moscow, Russia

History buffs have a field day in Moscow, Russia’s political, financial and cultural capital. Our guided tour begins with extraordinary places like the Kremlin Armory, one of the oldest museums in the city, the massive and imposing Red Square and the mind-boggling swirl of ice cream-colored towers and domes that is St. Basil’s Cathedral.

We marvel at the Bolshoi, the monumental architecture of the Soviet period and capture great photos of the towering contemporary skyline. With three full days in this vibrant city we have the opportunity to also tour the gold-domed New Maiden’s Convent, circa 17th century and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We can also take a relaxing cruise of the Moscow River and applaud a lavish performance on an historic theatrical stage.

Day 12 & 13Baku, Azerbaijan

With the Caspian Sea to the east, Russia to the north, Georgia to the northwest, Armenia to the west, Iran to the south and a short borderline with Turkey, Azerbaijan is a cultural melting pot. The capital of Baku was formerly a Persian capital, a booming oil town and a Soviet republic and it is just as intriguing today.

Built on a site inhabited since the Paleolithic period, the Walled City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its 12th century Maiden Tower, and the 15th century Shiranshahs’ Palace—an architectural gem.

Day 14 & 15Riga, Latvia

The largest city in the Baltics, Latvia is a destination on the rise. A sovereign nation since 1991, it shares borders with Estonia, Lithuania, Russia, Belarus and Sweden and spotlights its capital’s UNESCO World Heritage Site designation.

We begin our explorations on a walking tour of Old Riga to discover Europe’s finest collection of Art Nouveau buildings. Getting the lay of the land, we follow the lead of our professional guide to the Riga Art Nouveau Centre, City Hall Square, St. Peter’s Church and the Three Brothers, the oldest homes in Riga, with expert commentary along the way.

Part of the pleasure of our Latvian exposure is the opportunity to dine on local cuisine. With so many culinary influences it’s difficult to pin down where traditional dishes originated. But most restaurants carry delicious Latvian meat pies, pork with sauerkraut, and a tangy meat and potato salad.

Day 16 – 19Kotor, Montenegro & Prague, Czech Republic

On Day 16 we stop in Kotor on Boka Bay, simply one of the world’s most beautiful fjords. The old city of Kotor vies for our attention as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Our three-night stay in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, has much to enthrall.
