    Touring Eastern Europe

    Greetings from Poland! We just left Warsaw headed for Krakow, then on to Budapest by rail. We're taking a river cruise on the lower Danube from Budapest to Bucharest. The weather is pleasant here, and the sights are delightful!

    We did 4th river cruise with Tauck in April, Budapest to Prague, great spring weather, crowds yes but not as in summer. Loved all the cities & towns, great way to travel isn't it ? Thanks for pix...not underwater !

    Many people probably know this-

    Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is really two cities: Buda and Pest. Built by the Celts in the first century B.C., Budapest was originally called Ak Ink,meaning "spring rich in water."

    it will be interesting to see which city you enjoy more-

    Thanks everyone, for the nice comments. In Budapest we went for the dining gold splurging on a lavish multi-course lunch at Gundel. Then we boarded the Amadeus Queen for our trip downstream. Yesterday we visited Croatia, today we're in Belgrade, Serbia. It's 90 degrees here! Luckily the one year old ship has a pool. As always there are more photos and descriptions on our blog http://hardtoport.blogspot.com
