Vienna - 3 days from Prague

Vienna is one of the three so called “sister cities of Europe” – Prague, Vienna and Budapest and so no wonder our guests would like to visit it while they are in Prague.  It was during the Hapsburg reign, from the 16th to the 20th century that these cities were closely connected by culture as well as almost always ruled by the same monarch.  This gives the cities a strong bond which is apparent still today.

Vienna goes back to the Roman times however and became the capitol of the Austro-Hungarian Empire during the last 3 hundred years of it’s existence.
