Day 3
Budapest to Krakow, Poland

Legend has it a dragon had to be slain in order for Kraków to be built. Bit tougher than the usual council approvals, no? Today we’ll meet Poland's beating heart – and the largest medieval town square in Europe – on a walking tour. Buff up on history at Wawel Castle, feed the ducks on the banks of the Wisla, then try a few glasses of mead after dinner.

Day 4

Explore Kraków today and let the statement ‘Whoever saves one life saves the world entire’ really sink in at Oskar Schindler's factory. Alternatively, you could go 327 metres underground to see hundreds of shades of rock salt in the Wieliczka Salt Mine, visit a centuries-old synagogue in the Jewish district OR shop for amber in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Cloth Hall. Your day, your choice!

Meals: Breakfast

Day 5
Krakow to Prague, Czech Republic

First today, we’ll pay a sobering visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp for a lesson in the resilience of humanity. Then, fuel up on trdelník (pastry deliciousness) before we meet Prague on a walking tour. In this beautiful city, you can check out the largest ancient castle in the world, cross the medieval Charles Bridge and watch 'Death' toll the hour on an astronomical clock that's over 600 years old. After dinner, get cosy in a café with a hot chocolate.

  • Walking tour of Prague

Day 6

You’ve got a free day! What’s it gonna be? Seek out the John Lennon wall and grab yourself a new cover photo, soak up some Czech history at the National or Communist Museum, or get a taste of the quirky local culture at a puppet opera (you gotta see it to believe it). Don’t forget to eat roast pork from one of the street vendors lining Old Town Square – and, obviously, drink some beer. Really. Good. Beer.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 7

Our trip is ending, but that doesn’t mean your time in Prague has to! Why not stay a little bit longer?
