From the moment I saw the Hungarian Parliament building in Budapest, I knew that
I was in for a magical experience on my Tauck River Cruise. The architecture in Europe
with its ornate detail and elegance has fascinated me for years and now I was finally
getting to experience it in person!
I spent most of our two days in Vienna checking out some amazing cathedrals. Although
the most memorable was the imposing St. Stephens with its detailed Gothic design, I
stumbled upon a quiet cathedral on my own and got to bask in the murals and statues
Vienna was also memorable because of an encounter that can be described as nothing
short of enchanting. Dressed formally on a beautiful evening, my fellow passengers and
I were transported to a palace in the heart of the city. We were treated to a private
dinner which featured a concert with a small orchestra and a duet by opera performers.
This amazing experience was all the more incredible because we were listening to the
works of Mozart and Strauss–in the ballroom where Mozart and Strauss had played!
The magnificent Schonbrunn Palace, the wine region of the Wachau Valley,
castle ruins and beautiful Salzburg were just a few of the wonders of my journey.
My thanks to Tauck for creating the trip of a lifetime!
