Travel itinerary ideas for two weeks in Eastern Europe

ITINERARY 1

Budapest - Discover everything Budapest has to offer, from scenic walks along the river to a delicious food scene to its under-the-radar but excellent wine.

Sighișoara - Explore the medieval walled citadel with its cultural attractions and great restaurants and bars. Sample some Romanian cuisine—the Casa Dracula (original home of Vlad the Impaler, the model for Count Dracula) is now a restaurant specializing in hearty meat and game dishes of the region.

Braşov - Impressively situated on a rock outcrop and dominating the valley, this 14th-century castle is steeped in history and folklore. Soak in the gorgeous countryside as you learn about the creepier side of Romania.

Veliko Tarnovo - Enjoy the morning in the medieval town of Veliko Tarnovo. In the afternoon, visit the hilltop village of Arbanasi and soak in the views over Veliko Tarnovo.

Sofia - A mix of western grandeur and Soviet bulk, Sofia boasts a gold-domed church and delicious international dining. Sample modern takes on Bulgarian and international food, with some great trendy dining opportunities.

ITINERARY 2

Moscow -
Walk across the cobblestones of Moscow’s iconic Red Square to see St Basil’s Cathedral and the stout red brick walls of the Kremlin; that fabled palace-fort of gilded domes where an exquisite collection of royal treasures are housed in the Armoury Chamber.

Trans Siberian Railway - Journey across wide rivers and sprawling bridges; time and distance slip will away as you while away the hours in the dining car making new friends, gazing from the window, or relaxing in your cabin.

Irkutsk - This city boasts 18th-century churches and is renowned for its brightly painted shutters and log houses decorated with wooden lacework.

Lake Baikal - Spend two nights in the Siberian village of Listvyanka – a popular summer resort for locals. Its small port is often lively with a chance to bargain with the locals, try some delicious smoked fish, the typical dish of the region, and admire 2000 kilometres of shoreline as well as magnificent vistas across the icy waters. 

Vladivostok - Given its strategic eastern location, Vladivostok is a melting pot of Russian, Slavic, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean culture, and it’s a fitting example of how this epic railway has connected countries and people for centuries.
