Highlights of European Rivers

Serenity is at the heart of river cruising in Europe. There's a shoreside whirl of medieval cites – with their sprawling history and contemporary romance – and multiple cultures and cuisines. Aboard a riverboat though, the world is tranquil. River cruising provides the perfect opportunity to blend sights and respite.

A few of the highlights of European river cruising:

  • Amsterdam has around 7,000 recognised historic buildings flanking numerous canals, world-class museums full of works by Dutch masters and a welcoming, pedestrian-friendly charm. Known for liberal leanings, any visit here – long or short – will be rewarding in its own way.
  • Have good luck bestowed upon you by touching the Baroque statues lining Prague's Charles Bridge. Often described as a storybook city, Prague's history is not always a fairytale one, but a handful of the must-sees are Prague Castle, the Astronomical Clock and the pure Gothic Tyn Church.
  • Humble beginnings as a 12th-century timber fort belie the significant influence Moscow would come to wield during subsequent eras. When stepping ashore, consider savouring the architectural variety, see Red Square, tour the Kremlin, enjoy a performance at the globally-renowned Bolshoi Theatre. Moscow has emerged from behind its iron curtain into a decidedly different world.
