Highlights of this trip

• Majestic Bucharest

Village of Gorno Draglishte

Taverns of Bansko

Roman amphitheatre, Plovdiv

Blue Mosque, Istanbul

Extensive photographic tuition

Impressions of Eastern Europe takes us on an atmospheric voyage through three countries, ending up in Istanbul, the gateway to Asia. This is a region that has been conquered by a series of great empires; from the Romans to the Communist bloc, and there are many reminders of a turbulent past.

In Romania we start in the capital city, Bucharest. A historic city, it is dominated by the former palace of the dictator Ceascescau. Last time Steve was in Bucharest, the city was still covered in bullet holes from the revolution which overthrew this brutal regime. We then travel through the little known country of Bulgaria before crossing into Istanbul, on the edge of the Bosphorus. We don't just spend time in the major cities, but visit quiet provincial towns, remote monasteries and even peaceful villages on this varied journey into the East.

As much of this itinerary is new to us, this is officially an exploratory journey. But rest assured, Intrepid Travel have much experience in this area, so join us as we set out on our voyage of discovery.
