Long an important delineator of east and west, the Elbe River links two of the most fascinating capitals of Europe—Prague and Berlin—as it traverses a land filled with captivating treasures.
This seven-night river cruise aboard the intimate Frederic Chopin captures both the broad sweep and the fine details of these treasures: See Wenceslas Square, ground zero of the Velvet Revolution; the fortress-crowned crags, and spectacular gorges of “Saxon Switzerland”; the Wittenberg church where Martin Luther posted his 95 Reformation Theses; historic Jewish synagogues and cemeteries; World War II memorials; Meissen’s fine porcelain workshop; the treasures of Dresden’s Green Vault; the oldest Gothic cathedral in Germany; and Potsdam’s whimsical Sanssouci Palace. From Bohemia to the former East Germany, the variety of visits and views in this part of the world is rich and unique.
Join us on a journey that combines the best of modern Europe with true old world charm. For those wishing to lengthen their stay, a post-tour extension to Berlin is available.
