The Elbe River has long been an important delineator of east and west in Europe. Linking two of the most fascinating capital cities-Prague and Berlin-it traverses a land filled with captivating treasures, including cosmopolitan cities and picturesque towns; terraced vineyards and lush orchards; fortress-crowned crags; and the spectacular gorges of "Saxon Switzerland." Beginning with a stay at the incomparable and centrally located Four Seasons Prague, this eight-night river cruise aboard the lovely Elbe Princesse embraces the broad sweep of history across this region from Bohemia to the former East Germany: Prague Castle, a sprawling complex that has served as the seat of power for kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman emperors, and presidents of the former Czechoslovakia; 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 and Zwinger Palace; the famous Bauhaus school of 20th-century architecture; Potsdam's whimsical Sanssouci palace and gardens, summer residence of Frederick the Great, notable for the numerous temples and follies within its park; and the contrast of old and new in Berlin, Germany's dynamic capital city and largest metropolis.
Optional Post-Tour Extension in Berlin.
