    We journey across the River Danube into the Czech Republic and to the delightful town of Cesky Krumlov on our optional excursion. This charming town experienced its greatest prosperity during the rule of Lords of Rožmberk (1302-1602), who chose Cesky Krumlov to become the seat of their kingdom. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a lively cosmopolitan town with a unique atmosphere surrounded by unspoiled countryside. Dominated by a Castle stretching over the meandering Vltava River, Cesky Krumlov's narrow cobblestone streets wind along romantic nooks between patrician houses. Here you will find cosy inns, coffee shops, and ancient taverns.

    Tonight, we enjoy a special gala dinner with live music, and at midnight, raise a glass of sparkling wine, as we welcome the new year!

    Today we include a visit to Salzburg, one of the most beautiful cities in Austria. Salzburg has something to offer every visitor, from lovely squares and medieval lanes to Gothic churches and quaint cafés. The city dates back to Celtic times and prospered in the Middle Ages on account to the salt industry from where the city derives its name. Many beautiful baroque buildings are a testament to the city’s illustrious past when it was controlled by the powerful and wealthy bishops. The city is also famed in the world of music, as the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and more recently as the setting for “The Sound of Music” and is also home to the Getriedegasse, one of the most beautiful shopping streets in Austria. Why not join our optional guided walking tour to introduce you to the city before spending the afternoon at leisure. Accompanied by our local English-speaking guide, the walking tour lasts approximately 90 minutes and takes in the many sights and attractions of this famous alpine city.

    Later this afternoon we visit the crystal clear Lake Mondsee, one of the largest lakes in the region and also one of the warmest. We spend time in the delightful and principle resort of Mondsee, located on the banks of the lake. Mondsee is home to the Basilica of St. Michael, the famous wedding church where Maria married Georg von Trapp in the film ‘The Sound of Music’. This gothic former monastery is just as striking today as ever with its two towers stretching 52 meters high. The basilica reached international fame when the wedding scene, with Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, was filmed inside. This is the reason why more than 200,000 people visit the church every year and make it one of the most photographed churches in the world.
