From Hungary, the rail voyage meanders through stunningly beautiful countryside and awe-inspiring mountain ranges on explorations of mythical Transylvania. Then, it will route westwards through the intriguing countries of the former Yugoslavia and eventually, arriving at the stunning maritime city of Venice, a unique mix of Gothic and Renaissance palaces perched on the edge of the Italian coast. Among the many highlights along the way are Sighisoara, a World Heritage site rumoured to be the birthplace of Dracula; medieval tombs and Turkish baths and the city of Mostar, one of the most important in the Ottoman Empire. The social heart of the Golden Eagle Danube Express lies within the Bar Lounge Car, a great place to unwind and settle into the unhurried pace of life on board.
