Day 1 Dubrovnik, Croatia

We'll meet you in the land of epic sunsets. Let's get this show on the road.

Meals:
-Dinner

Day 2 Dubrovnik

Free day in King's Lan... sorry, Dubrovnik. Check out the residential homes further up in the old town for awesome views and a local perspective. Then: a cold beer on the wall as the sun sets over the Adriatic. This is the good life.

Included today:
-Tour of Dubrovnik with a local guide

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Sea kayaking

Day 3 Dubrovnik to Plitvice Lakes

Listen to the ocean play an instrument in Zadar. The Sea Organ is a quirky art installation that sits amongst the city's eclectic mix of Roman ruins and public art. Next up: bliss and waterfalls at the Plitvice Lakes National Park to catch some z's.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 4 Plitvice Lakes

Today is brought to you by Mother Nature. Made up of 16 lakes connected by streams and waterfalls and surrounded by 300 square kilometres of national park, Plitvice Lakes didn't make it onto the UNESCO World Heritage list without reason. Hike up to see the tallest waterfall in Croatia or glide across the crystal blue lakes in a rowboat. Mindfulness just got a whole new meaning.

Included today:
-Visit Plitvice National Park

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 5 Plitvice Lakes to Budapest, Hungary

Your house in Budapest awaits. Check out Hero's Square, Parliament House, the National Palace, Fisherman's Bastion and swanky Andrássy Ave. Then it's time to meet the major food groups: goulash, cabbage rolls and dumplings, oh my!

Included today:
-Driving tour of Budapest

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch

Day 6 Budapest

Free day = Put down your Rubik's Cube and take on a city with enough baroque, neoclassical and art nouveau architecture to keep you puzzled for hours. Take to the waters at the art nouveau Gellert Baths and don't leave til you're pruny. There are 80+ thermal springs in Budapest but this is its most famous. Wave pool, anyone?! Indulge in a spa treatment then visit the Buda Castle or House of Terror Museum. Tonight, hang with the hipsters and drink local fruit brandy.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 7 Budapest to Krakow, Poland

So long Budapest, we're off to Poland. Magnificent Krakow to be more precise. This city was built on the legend of dragon defeat, and mystical vibes fill the streets. Believe it (or not), but makes for a damn good dragon tale. Grab your bearings and settle into a walking tour with your awesome Topdeck Trip Leader.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Krakow

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch

Day 8 Krakow

Krakow is yours for the day. Take to the streets and own this day - explore the Old Town, impressive museums and the Rynek Glówny, Europe’s largest market square.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 9 Krakow to Prague, Czech Republic

Bohemia's cobblestones are calling but first, a visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Then, fuel up on trdelník (pastry deliciousness) before a walking tour amongst spires and cobblestone streets of Prague. Suss out the castle deemed worthy by Guinness World Records as being the largest ancient castle in the world, cross medieval Charles Bridge and watch 'Death' toll the hour on an astronomical clock that's over 600 years old.

Included today:
-Visit Auschwitz-Birkenau
-Walking tour of Prague

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 10 Prague

Another free day for the win. Channel your inner bohemian and seek out the John Lennon memorial wall, then soak up some more Czech history at the National or Communist Museum or get a taste of the quirky local culture at a marionette puppet opera (you gotta see it to believe it). Snap a selfie at Prague's own Eiffel Tower, visit a miniatures museum, eat roast pork from one of the street vendors lining Old Town Square and drink beer. Good beer.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 11 Prague to Berlin, Germany

Roll on over to Berlin before a pitstop via Dresden- a city virtually destroyed in WWII and then rebuilt - and ogle the Frauenkirche before making your beard all the more ironic in Berlin. Prep yourself for currywurst, absinthe and more hipsters per capita than anywhere else. We'll drive you around to see the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag building before making your food baby sing with a hearty German meal.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Dresden
-Waking tour of Berlin

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 12 Berlin

Shake off last night with a wander around the German capital. Optional: Third Reich walking tour and local insight into what the city was like under Nazi rule during World War II.

Tonight: hit the hot spots on an optional nightlife tour.

Day 13 Berlin to Amsterdam, Netherlands

Cheese lovers, rejoice. Your next stop is a local Dutch farm to see how cheddar (and clogs) gets made. Next: Amsterdam, mayo-dipped fries and red lights.
