1’ Day – Budapest
 

No more waiting!! The day has finally arrived for you to fly to Budapest to join us on this unforgettable opportunity to go backpacking through Europe!

 

This first day, depending on the arrival time of your flight, you will be able to walk around Budapest and get to know this city, born by unification of Buda and Pest when legendary Chain Bridge was built.

 
2’ Day - Budapest

It’s time to explore the city which was born by unification of two sections: ‘Buda’ on the west side of the river Danube and ‘Pest’ on the east side.

Since  ’89 Hungary and it’s capital have been known for impressive development and every year they receive more and more tourists, youngsters in particular are attracted by the festivals held here and the nightlife provided by the famous Ruins Bars. 

 
 

Feeling chilly? Then don’t forget your swimsuit and enjoy the best thermal baths in Europe, either at Szechenyi or at Gellert.

Did you know that…

  • Wizz-Air, the second Low Cost flight company of Europe is Hungarian….that’s why it’s so easy to find cheap flights to Budapest.
  • The first Ruins Bar that was opened in Budapest is called Szimpla Kert.
 
 
3’ Day - Budapest - Krakow

After saying bye to Budapest, we will start our day heading to impressive Tatras mountains, that mark the border between Poland and Slovakia.

This drive is especially pleasant to nature lovers. Once in Slovakia, only a few kilometers after crossing the border, we will visit a tiny town called Oravsky Podzamok, where we will visit one of the oldest castles in Slovakia, the Orava Castle (optional entrance).

 

After visiting the castle we will continue on our tour around Europe, passing through Slovakia until we arrive in Krakow.  Karkow s a very famous city in a country which was host to many battles and bombings during WW2: Poland.

Almost all the Polish cities have been totaly destroyed and there are very few with such an intact old town. One of them is Wroclaw, where we will make a stop if everything goes as planned, to feel the atmosphere of this young city, where more than 100 bridges cross the river Oder. From there, we will follow to the south of Poland, where the cultural and touristic capital of Poland awaits us: Krakow.

*Optional Activity

  • Excursion to Orava Castle

Did you know that…

  • Every saturday, thrilling parties in thermal baths of Szechenyi take place, called  SPARTIES.
  • Hungary used to be part of Austrio-Hungarian empire, thats why it has a lot in common with Vienna and Bratislava.

 

 
 
 
4’ Day - Krakow

Today we visit Krakov whilst backpacking through Europe. Krakow is the cultural icon of Poland, given its history: here you will have the chance to enjoy different zones developed in different eras, and that didn’t suffer too much damage during World War II.

The medieval old town is perfectly conserved and it’s possible to walk through it, following the royal path that goes from the north to the south of the city, starting at the Barbican, crossing the market square, the biggest in Europe, which is dominated by the Saint Mary’s cathedral, and finishing at the legendary castle Wawel, which overlooks the river Vistula.

In the  XIX century, the Jewish quarter was developed on the south from the castle, the most active and characteristic quarter of the town. This quarter was converted into a ghetto during the Nazi control and it’s where Schindler lived, a German that saved thousands of Jewish lives, lying to german authorities and whose story was reflected in a Steven Spielberg.

Moreover, Krakow has a district that is characterised by communist architecture, known by urbanists from all around the world as Nowa Huta. This also happens to be a very well developed industrial zone.

Close to Krakow, about a one hour driving distance, the only concentration camp that survived the German selfdestruction in their attempts to erase the proofs of the existence of these camps.

Auschwitz is a place of memory and reflexion, where a local guide will speak to us either in English or in Spanish about all the atrocities of the Nazi regime and about the physical and moral destruction that the Jewish community had to bear.

*Optional Activity:

  • Excursion to Auschwitz
 

Did you know that…

  • Auschwitz and Krakow have been scene to many movies:  Movies set in Poland
  • The famous scientist Copernicus, the first one to notice that the sun, not the earth was the centre of the solar system, studied in Krakow.
 
 
5’ Day - Krakow - Prague

We will leave behind the cultural and turistic Polish capital, Krakow, and continue backpacking through Europe by heading to another magical city

Another day, another country, another language, another currency.

This time, the golden city of Prague awaits us! You will be amazed by the beautiful historic alleyways and the gorgeous 9th century castle that characterise ths city.

 
 
6’ Day - Prague

Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic laying on the Vltava River and is the largest city in the region of Bohemia. Throughout its history, it has been given several names, such as “The Golden City”, “City of a Hundred Spires” and “The Heart of Europe”.

Let´s make the most of the morning visiting this incredible city. We’ll go from the gunpowder tower and pass by the beautiful, modernist Municipal House to the Wenceslas square, universally known for the scene in “Prague Spring”.

The state theatre, where various works of Mozart were first shown, and the Jewish District are all close by. After, we can pass by the Clementinum, the old Jesuit college, to finally arrive at the Charles Bridge, with its 30 famous Baroque sculptures. If we have time, we can head to the “Old town Square” with its outstanding and fascinating astronomical clock.

In the afternoon we still have a lot to see of this beautiful city. If you have the energy, you can follow the path up to the Prague Castle, which sits in the bend of the Moldava river, and is the biggest castle in the world.

Get to know its patios, where we will find the Saint Vito Cathedral, with its artistic treasures, gothic palaces and ancient palace of the Bohemian kingswith the magnificent hall of Vladislav, which was the biggest civil hall in Europe in its time. Also, the St George Basilica, made in the year 920 and the Golden Lane, where the castle guards, medieval artisans, goldsmiths, alchemists and even the great Franz Kafka all stayed.

We hope that you didn’t get too tired today, because there is a huge variety of Czech beer to try and it’s very very cheap…

 

Did you know…

  • The Prague Castle is described as the largest ancient castle on Earth. This is where the monarchy of Bohemia and the presidents of the Czech Republic stay. (We will visit this site and highlight the Golden Lane, as well as the Black and White Towers).
  • Prague Beer is cheaper than water! This is because beer is part of the everyday life and is sweet and drinkable. Awesome!
  • Prague is not at its height of fashion. The city still sees the “socks and sandals” look… Don’t believe us? Keep an eye out when you go.
 
7’ Day - Prague - Dresden - Berlin

Once we have left Prague on our trip backpacking through Europe, we will head for the famous German capital! But before, we will make a stop in Dresden, the last German city we will visit and which is known as “Florence on the river Elbe”, We will have a chance to try “wurst”, German sausage and to value the baroque architecture of Berlin.

*The route from Prague to Berlin will be made on public transport. Unitrips will take charge for factors such as times organisation and the costs that this implies.

 

Did you know…

  • The origin and meaning of Berlin is “swampy land” because the land on which the city is built was very swampy.
  • The TV Tower of Berlin, is 368 meters high, and is the second highest tower in Europe. And not only that, you can go to the 200m point of the tower, where there is a restaurant that spins around 360 degrees (slowly) every 30 minutes.
  • Although there is only one emblematic gate to the city, the Brandemburg Gate, that remains, at one point in history there were 18 different entry gates.
 
 
8’ Day - Berlin

Ich bin ein Berliner”, which means “I am a Berliner” is what JFK said in ’63 to show support with people who were separated from their families due to construction of the Berlin wall. Today, it’s time for you to repeat the phrase and spend a day as a Berliner.

We will continue backpacking through Europe to the Checkpoint Charlie, running across a large portion of the former wall of Berlin, destroyed in ’89, which is certainly the most important political event of Germany to occur in the past 50 years. If there is time, we will get to famous Alexanderplatz, where you will have an opportunity head up to see a token of Berlin, its skyline and impressive views from the TV tower.

 

*Optional Activity:

  • Berlin bus tour (with professional guide).

Whilst backpacking through Europe, you will have a chance to choose whether to spend the day with us and a professional local guide who will explain even the finest detail of what lies behind the buildings of Berlin, among all Reichstag, the Parliament of Germany, next to it the iconic Brandenburg Gate, and famous monument to holocaust, masterpiece of Heisman.
