The Central European Quartet is a symphony of diverse experiences. Seek out magnificent architecture, delicious culinary experiences, and tangible manifestations of events that remain forever woven into the fabric of human history. In true Ker & Downey fashion, each experience throughout these four countries is fully-customizable to focus on what most interests you and your intrepid traveling partners.
Our suggested itinerary begins in Krakow, Poland, where you will explore the city and two impactful sites: the astounding carvings and tunnels of the Wieliczka Salt Mines, and the tragic site of the Auschwitz concentration camp. Warsaw is next, and the city's cultural story is traced from the masterful artistry of former aristocratic homes to the reconstructed facades of Old Town.
Your Central European Quartet continues to the second country: Hungary. Together with your private guide, discover Budapest and witness how the centuries spent immersed in different cultures have shaped the face of the city. Indulge in the famed spas, visit museums and the Franz Liszt Music Academy, and see the iconic Danube River splitting the city in two. You'll also explore the lovely riverside architecture on your own private cruise.
Slovakia is the third country you will visit, taking in the historic wonder of Bratislava. From its vibrant Old Town packed with cafes and galleries to the marvelous castle dominating the city skyline, luxury travel in Bratislava is quite inviting. With Ker & Downey, you'll head into the Carpathian Mountains to discover the quaint villages and witness the production of outstanding wines.
End your historic tour of the Central European Quartet in Prague, one of the world's most beautiful cities. Your private guide reveals "the city of 100 spires" with attention to detail. Get a panoramic view of the Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and Classicist wonders from the historic tram that snakes through its streets. A full-day excursion to the spa city Karlovy Vary - or Carlsbad - allows you to inspect the artistry of crystal craftsmen and taste the distinct Becherovka liqueur. All of your senses will be indulged on our four-country exploration, customizable to keep you engaged and feeling enriched after your luxury travel journey.
