Binghamton University study program travels to the heart of Europe
Binghamton University’s Continuing Education & Outreach Division will offer a spring 2005 international study program to Central Europe, April 20 to May 1, 2005. Travelers will experience the culture, art, history, and architecture of the heart of Europe, focusing on the capital cities of Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest. The rich history of these very distinct and different cities will be explored, as well as the contemporary flair and energy of a post-communist society.
The first stop on the trip is a four-night visit to Prague, highlighted by excursions to St. Vitas Cathedral, Prague Castle, old Jewish sites, and area castles.
The tour will then travel to Vienna with a lunch stop in the town of Mikulov. A three-night stay in Vienna will include visits to the Lichtenstein Museum, the Schonbrunn Palace, the Hofburg, and the Spanish Riding School.
The tour moves to Budapest via Bratislava, the ancient capital of the Slovak Republic. Spending three nights in Budapest, travelers will visit the St Matthias Church, the castle district, Fisherman’s Bastion, Heroes’ Square, and area towns.
The trip costs $3,295 and includes return travel to Europe, three star hotels, deluxe bus travel in Europe, breakfasts, two dinners and three lunches, entrance to all sites, and experienced tour guides and leaders throughout the trip.
