Advertorial – Discover Four Fascinating Cities
Turn the clock back to a time when the Austrian Empire reigned over the heart of Europe during the 19th century. Their dominion reached far and wide having control over the regions that are now known as Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
Join us as we traverse through four astounding cities learning about their culture, history and traditions. Budapest, famous for the melodic sounds of Hungarian music and literature that unified the land and her people. Prague, a city that has undergone a magnificent restoration during the past decade, filled with astonishing architecture that will captivate anyone’s eyes. Vienna, a city that inspired great composers such as Schubert, Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn and Strauss. Salzburg, a city that is rich with both Baroque and Renaissance monuments.
Observe Breathtaking Architecture
No matter which city we’re in, there is no shortage of awe-inspiring monuments, statues and architecture. During our stay in the whimsical country of Austria, we will be taken on a private guided tour of the famous Melk Abbey.
The Abbey was founded centuries ago during 1089 and has seen numerous counts of near destruction from tragic events such as the fire in 1297 and an invasion launched by the Turks in 1683. Thankfully the monks of the abbey were able to recover most of the manuscripts from the abbey’s vast library during these series of unfortunate events.
Today, the Melk Abbey stands tall and proud, awaiting your arrival to discover and explore its extensive history, library and countless frescoes beautifully painted by Johann Michael Rottmayr.
