54 Iron Gates, Danube River The Lower Danube River Discover the Delights of Eastern Europe Onwards from Budapest the Danube River fl ows into the depths of Eastern Europe. Although less developed this region is known for spectacular and rugged landscapes as well as diverse and vibrant cities. Evergreen Tours also operates our new Emerald class river cruise ships here, with all the inclusions you expect on your holiday, and with a special focus on the dining specialties of the region and the included off–ship experiences. In each town or city, join your local guide for a walking or driving tour, with personal whisper headsets so you will never miss out on information, even if you are capturing a special moment on your camera away from the group. You can continue on to Bucharest from your Amsterdam to Budapest cruise, or enjoy this itinerary on its own. In Budapest, be welcomed on board and enjoy the night lights of this beautiful city, before sailing to Kalocsa where you are treated to a traditional Puszta horse show. Learn about local customs with a home-hosted dinner in Osijek, then explore Belgrade, Serbia's historic capital. Cruise the spectacular Iron Gates where the river meanders through the mountains along the Romanian border, then visit the former seat of the Bulgarian emperors at Veliko Tarnovo, with its striking views and rocky outcrops. Visit the town of Silistra then transfer to Bucharest the home of the former tyrant Nicolae Ceausescu, whose presence can still be felt today in Europe's largest building, the Palace of the Parliament. Visit Snagov Monastery, rumoured to be the burial place of Dracula (Discover More). Your Cruise Director and local guides will ensure a seamless and unforgettable journey into the former communist countries which are now open for us all to visit. We include a shore excursion in each port of call and you can personalise your holiday with our Discover More program which can be pre–booked (details on pages 134-137). Your Cruise Director and crew are specialists on the area. In fact most are from Eastern Europe so they will be able to give you real local insights into the region and the best tips on how to make the most of your free time. You can also choose to relax on board and enjoy the fantastic 24 sq m Club Pool at the rear of the ship, a feature exclusive to Evergreen Tours.
