with Tauck Tours took us through Eastern Europe. The trip
started in Warsaw, Poland, home of 19th-century composer
Fredric Chopin. We were given a private concert by an amazing
pianist. We then traveled to Cracow where we viewed the
sad and sobering memorial and museum at the Auschwitz concentration
camp. From here through the Tatra Mountains to Budapest.
The lights of the bridges and buildings were beautiful on
a Danube River cruise. The smell of chocolate led us to
Vienna and a fun strudel making demonstration and "tasting".
The last destination was Prague which is a beautiful city
and one of the few not destroyed and then rebuilt. This
was a trip filled with history, statues, monuments and architecture.
