My top travel picks.
I've been lucky enough to go on several European river cruises. Seeing classic cities like Prague, Vienna and Budapest that are filled with historic sites and rich cultural offerings makes for enriching travel experiences. Take a look at some of the great places you can see on your next trip.
Prague is beautiful, with its classic Old European architecture, cobbled streets and stone castles. Walk across the famous Charles Bridge and have a drink or a coffee at an outdoor table in the Town Square. You'll think you've time travelled.
Insider tip: Be sure to see the Prague Astronomical Clock in the Old Town Square. This medieval astronomical clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world (and the oldest one that still works.)
Schonbrunn Palace Garden, Vienna.
Famously called the “city of music,” Vienna was home to Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert and Strauss. The city's rich history, culture and architecture draw travellers from the world over.
Insider tip: Don't miss the Schonbrunn Palace. The 1,441-room Baroque residence was the summer home of the Habsburg rulers and is one of the most important architectural, cultural, and historical monuments in Austria.
Budapest offers spectacular views of the Danube River, which runs right through the heart of the city. You can also visit Roman ruins and tour the World Heritage sight of Buda Castle. You'll take some great pictures and make lasting memories.
Insider tip: The Parliament building, which is the tallest building in Budapest, sits right on the shore of the Danube. If you are at all interested in classic architecture, you'll want to visit this beautiful example of the Neo-Gothic style.
