City of Dreams

The cultural, economic, and political center of the country, Vienna has developed from its early Celtic and Roman roots into a medieval and Baroque city, with an old town that was designated a World Heritage Site in 2001.
Schonbrunn Palace and Historic Center of Vienna will appeal to history buffs. Belvedere Palace and The Hofburg will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of Vienna to go to Passau and see Donau Cycle Path, which is approximately 6 hours away. Next up on the itinerary: hunt for treasures at Vienna Naschmarkt, get a taste of the local shopping with Graben and Kohlmarkt, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Stephen's Cathedral, and admire the masterpieces at Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien.

Pearl of the Danube

You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Escape the urban bustle at Danube River and Priest's Island (Pap-sziget). Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Herend Porcelain - Hadik Shop and Book Cafe - Lotz Terem. There's lots more to do: test the waters at a local thermal spa, steep yourself in history at Matthias Church, get a sense of history and politics at Hungarian Parliament Building, and make a trip to Heroes' Square.
