The capitals of Hungary, Serbia and Romania will surprise and delight. Admire Budapest, rightly called the ‘Pearl of the Danube’, and visit one of Europe’s oldest capitals, Belgrade. Wind your way through the Iron Gates and spend time exploring Bucharest’s grandiose architecture. Cruise through the pristine Danube Delta wetlands, a bird-watcher’s paradise consisting of an intricate pattern of marshes, channels, streams and lakes, then take a step back in time in the mysterious land of Transylvania, often described as ‘the last truly medieval landscape in Europe’.
