Their cobbled lanes are useless for cars, their castles have terrible insulation, and their Baroque buildings cost a fortune to maintain.

But, on this adventure, you discover that the beauty of these Eastern European features outweighs the impracticalities. You descend tiny history-soaked staircases in the fortresses of Transylvania, wander through ancient lanes crammed with bars and books in Brasov, and look over churches and spires from the ridges of the Bucegi Mountains. Find out that being beautiful is more important than being useful on this trip through Eastern Europe’s historic wonders.
