Prague and Berlin: A Tale of Two Cities

October 8 to 16, 2015

Edventures is pleased to announce Prague and Berlin: A Tale of Two Cities, a tour that departs for Prague in the Czech Republic on October 8, and returns on October 16, 2015.


Our tour begins in the enchanting city of Prague, Czech Republic. Held by Communism for forty years, Prague remains one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. At long last, Prague has come into full bloom. Its compact medieval center creates a story-book maze of cobbled lanes, ancient courtyards, dark passages, and inspiring churches all securely watched over by an eleven-hundred-year-old castle with guards on horseback. Sipping coffee in the square beneath the astronomical clocktower will forever be one of your top travel memories. 

We have arranged first class train accommodation to glide us through the Czech countryside and into Berlin, where history comes to life in Germany’s capital city. Rising from the ashes of World War II when the city is split between East and West, the city is famous for its exceptional variety of attractions and offers a flourishing cultural scene. Berlin is a city of art, museums and culture. The Berlin Wall Museum, Checkpoint Charlie, and the Brandenburg Gate recall its ancient and current history. The famed Museum Island places treasures of the world on public display. A day trip to Potsdam, the “City of Castles” takes us into the German countryside. 

“A Tale of Two Cities,” this itinerary is rich in art, history and majestic cityscapes. 

Land-only trip price: $2775 (based on double occupancy).

Trip includes:

  • Round trip flights from JFK to Prague with return Berlin to JFK
  • Seven nights superior hotel (3 Prague — 4 Berlin)
  • Private motorcoach and English speaking tour guide, small group travel, gratuities and entrance fees included
