Danube River and the Habsburg Empire with Professor Pieter Judson ’78
June 14–28, 2012
There is still time to join this exciting exploration of Eastern Europe. Travel in the company of Professor Pieter Judson, alumni and friends on a unique journey that combines a seven-night cruise on the Danube River with three nights in each of the historic cities of Prague and Kraków. Come explore the medieval spires, honey-colored cathedrals, and cultural treasures of the former Habsburg Empire—one of the most prolific in all of European history—as we are introduced to six Central European countries and visit seven UNESCO World Heritage sites. Discover the spectacular legacy of art, music, and culture of the Habsburgs that thrived for over six centuries and explore Prague and Kraków, whose medieval architecture was spared destruction during World War II.
