European River Cruises for History Buffs
Jewish Heritage Cruises
Visit the Anne Frank House and Museum in Amsterdam on a Romantic Rhine Jewish Heritage cruise. The free audio tour of the home is available in nine languages explaining the persecution of the Jews in WWII – about Jews that were in hiding, and about the people who helped. Budapest, Hungary is home to the world’s second largest synagogue, and in Regensburg you can visit the Document Neupfarrplatz museum. Visit Terezin, Czechoslovakia to see one of the country’s largest concentration camps. A poignant memorial tells the historic and tragic experiences related to the camp.
Habsburg Royalty Cruise
This is another of Avalon’s amazing history cruises. You’ll visit Bucharest, Romania, the “Paris of the East” where you’ll take a tour of the capital’s boulevards, Arc de Triomphe, Royal Palace Square, and see other historic sites from a rich history. At St. Gheorghe you can take an excursion to the Danube Delta, and go on a small-boat guided tour. You’ll sail through the Balkans to Budapest where you’ll take a guided tour to see Heroes’ Square and other important historic sights.
Enjoy a guided sightseeing tour of Bratislava, Slovakia, and then on to Vienna, Austria, the former center of the Habsburg Empire. You’ll visit the lavish Habsburg Imperial Palace and neo-renaissance Vienna Opera House. The Wachau Valley wine region is beautiful to see. Go on to visit the lovely Benedictine Abbey in Melk. When you arrive in Linz, you can stroll through Austria’s largest medieval square, the Hauptplatz or take an excursion to the Austrian lake region that the Habsburg family frequented. You can walk the cobbled streets of Passau, Germany and visit the baroque architectural masterpiece of St. Stephen’s Cathedral.
