VIENNA / SCHÖNBRUNN PALACE
The Imperial Palace of Schönbrunn, with its adjacent buildings and vast gardens, is among the most important baroque structures of its type in Europe. Enjoy the visit to the Residential palace with its furniture, fixtures, and fittings that impressively reflect the lifestyle of the imperial family. The attractiveness of Schönbrunn Palace lies in its largely original interior from the 18th century, as well as in the baroque garden landscape which remains scarcely altered.
VIENNA / VIENNA PALACE CONCERT
A wonderful concert of Viennese classical music including some of the most famous works of Johann Strauss and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, performed by some of the highly acclaimed soloists and dancers in Austria. A glass of champagne is included during the interval.

BUDAPEST / CSARDA DINNER
Experience an evening of stormy Hungarian and Gypsy folklore. Your dinner in a restaurant on the Buda Hills will start with a Palinka aperitif, served in a little souvenir jar, and gypsy music. You will then enjoy traditional Hungarian cuisine, followed by music, folklore, dancing, and singing. After dinner, you will be taken on a night ride to Citadel Hill, where you will enjoy a wonderful view of the illuminated city with its beautiful bridges.
WARSAW / WILANOW PALACE
This splendid baroque palace, as impressive as Versailles, was built in the late 17th century as a summer residence for King Jan Sobieski III and owned later by most important polish noble families. The main building consisting of 3 wings, housed the oldest museum established in Poland in 1805 to preserve the memory about Sobieski family and spectacular national history moments of that time, including Battle of Vienna in 1683 against the Ottoman Empire. The residence complex extended by a large garden and lakeside promenade, fortunately, avoided deeper destruction in 1939-1945. After detailed renovations in 2010-11, Wilanow Palace presents its valuable collection of royal furniture, portraits, and China.
WARSAW / CHOPIN CONCERT
It was the genius of Frederic Chopin that made Poland’s music world famous. The Mazurkas, Etudes, Polonaises, and Scherzos became a test and measure of any pianist’s talent. Enjoy a Chopin piano recital, performed just for you in a setting fit for a king. A glass of champagne is served during intermission.
