The legacies of long-ago empires are everywhere in and around the grand cities of Budapest, Vienna and Prague... centuries-old traditions that are still here to be explored and embraced with your small group on our new 10-day Culturious trip visiting Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic. Some are brick-and-mortar, like the Baroque splendor you'll discover on a private visit to the Bergl Rooms in Vienna’s Schönbrunn Palace, or the mysterious corners of Charles Bridge you’ll experience after dark on a ghost tour in Prague. Others are undying traditions that continue to define the culture long after the empire ceased to be. Meet Lippizaner Stallions at the Spanish Riding School... watch the bravado of Puszta horsemen... connect with local residents in Vienna Coffeehouse Conversations... learn the etiquette of a Viennese ball... or the only way to make authentic Hungarian strudel or brew real Bohemian beer...
