Detailed Itinerary:Tulcea to Budapest (TBD)

Skip to Budapest to Tulcea itinerary

It is a beautiful town, with wide avenues, large squares and wonderful buildings following a style of "national Renaissance" architecture. Return on board in Svistov. Afternoon and night spend sailing.

Day 6: The Iron Gates

Full board on board. Day spend sailing. Passing through the narrow pass of the Iron Gates between the Carpathians and the Balkans - truly an amazing location. The most spectacular part of the pass used to be called “the Danube Boilers” by navigators and sailors because the water trapped between the steep mountainous walls seemed to bubble and boil. An equally striking but somewhat lighter landmark on the Serbian side of the river is the “Tabula Traiana” - an enormous Roman memorial plaque made of marble, erected to commemorate the completion of Trajan's military road, or “imperial route” that linked the province of Dacia to Rome. Passing through the “Small Boilers”. The rocky slopes come closer together, then suddenly, the mountain pass opens up, giving the impression of a lake between the mountains, at the spot where the Mracona Valley opens into the Danube. An elegant viaduct towers over the mouth of the river and we can see the “portrait” of the old Dacian King Decebalus carved into the rock face.

Day 7: Belgrade - Novi Sad, Serbia

Full board on board. Guided tour of Belgrade. Located at the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers, the town has created its own cultural identity based on a mix of Austro-Hungarian, Ottoman and Slavic cultures. From the Fortress of Kalemegdan, you'll enjoy spectacular views of the great river Danube and its tributary, the Sava. In the afternoon, excursion to Novi Sad. Located in the southern part of the Great Plain in the Baga region, Novi Sad is the multi-ethnic capital of Vojvodina. The lively and colorful little historic center of Novi Sad is absolutely charming. Visit continues to Krusedol monastery and the small town of Sremski Karlovci. Return on board in Novi Sad. Cruise to Osijek.
