Decide how you spend today, with a choice between two experiences.
Explore Baba Vida Fortress in Vidin. Raised upon the remains of the ancient town of Bononia, the medieval castle dates back to the 10th century. Afterwards, venture to Belogradchik to uncover its ancient fortress on the northern slope of the Balkan mountains. You’ll also see the town’s unique rock formations.
Today, cruise through the awe-inspiring natural wonder of the Iron Gates, where you will see the towering rock sculpture of Decebalus.
In Novi Sad, explore the city on a walking tour or take a guided bike ride.
See local handicrafts and porcelain at the Folk Art House, and visit a paprika manufacturer – a famous export of the region. Later, visit a farm in Puszta for a traditional horse riding show followed by lunch. Here, watch as talented horsemen make their horses drop to the floor, sit on command and gallop around the ring, before completing their signature move the ‘Puszta-5’ – in which a single horseman controls a team of five horses, all whilst standing on the backs of the rear two.
Discover Budapest your way thanks to a selection of Freedom of Choice experiences.
