Join us on our Imperial Cities Tour

Please join us April 25 to May 6, 2022 on another one of our exciting travel adventures to explore the imperial cities of Central Europe. From the early days of the Holy Roman Empire on to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Prague, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest have been among Europe’s most important and influential imperial capitals. These cities have been instrumental in shaping the intellectual, aesthetic and cultural character of Western civilization. We’ll explore Prague, known as “the city with 1000 spires,” as we take in the views from the hilltop of Prague Castle, walk the famed Charles Bridge and stand in Wenceslas Square to hear about centuries of Bohemian history. In elegant Vienna, we’ll marvel at the regal Schönbrunn Palace and delight in the performance of the graceful Lipizzaner Stallions at the Spanish Riding School. The incredible architecture of Budapest will amaze you from atop Fisherman’s Bastion by day, and then again by night, on our private Danube dinner cruise. Bratislava will surprise you, as this small capital city on the Danube has eagerly embraced capitalism, while preserving its past. With deluxe accommodations, delicious samples of the local cuisines and the special experiences you have come to expect from our brand of travel, you will thoroughly enjoy discovering the Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary with us. 

A tour presentation will be held Sunday, August 29, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at Friends of Iowa PBS, 6535 Corporate Drive in Johnston. For more information, to receive a printed brochure, or to RVSP for the tour presentation, please contact Darla Hassebroek at darla@iowapbs.org or call 800.728.2828.
