Eastern European countries that were out of bounds through much of the late 20th century are becoming popular holiday destinations and are even more fascinating for their tumultuous past. Relax on a luxurious river cruise as we sail along the Danube, and choose from the list of excursions that offer an insight into recent history – Bucharest’s Palace of the Parliament – and old legacies – Silistra Fort; experience long-running cultural delights – a Hungarian horse show – and explore cities that have evolved, yet preserved their millennia-old heritage, such as Rousse, Belgrade, Varna and Osijek. The human element is not the only draw – take bike rides through scenic countryside, go fishing in quiet rivers and sail through the Iron Gates – an unquestionable highlight on a Danube cruise.
