This series travels to six European cities that have emerged as the fastest growing tourist destinations in Europe over the past decade; Bruge, Prague, Amsterdam, St. Petersburg, Venice and Vienna.

VENICE Built on 118 islets within the Gulf of Venice, an arm of the Adriatic Sea, Venice is known for its sculpted churches, marble and stone front homes and gondolas winding through its romantic canals. Among its attractions are Piazza San Marco (St. Mark's Square) & Basilica, the Bell Tower, The Palace of the Doges and its eccentric Carnaval. Venice also houses remarkable paintings of such Venetian masters as Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese. To many, it is the most beautiful city in the world and is marked by an amazing history that is filled with rich stories of past monarchies, religious festivities and political life.

VIENNA Resting on the Danube River, Vienna is a bastion of classical music and majesty. The home and inspiration behind some of the world's most prolific composers and musical geniuses such as; Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert and Strauss, Vienna has always retained a reputation as one of the world's leading musical centers. In addition, Vienna is also known for its wonderful architecture, epicurean taste and place in the world of art.

BRUGE Picturesque canals and the charming architecture of this Medieval city combine to make Bruge an extremely regal and unique city. We will visit the church of Notre Dame (which houses the Madonna and Child statue by Michelangelo), journey to the castle of Count Charles where the Holy Blood of Christ brought back from the Crusades is set in a case loaded with precious stones. The romance of Bruge will bring us to the shores of Minnewater ("Minna's Water") also known as The Lake of Love, where the distraught maiden spent days in the forest until she died of exhaustion waiting for her lover. Bruge is a place marked by venerable religious art, romantic canals, beautiful architecture and a rich history.

ST. PETERSBURG Founded in 1703 by Peter the Great as his "Window to the West", St. Petersburg (formerly named Petrograd and Leningrad) was the first Russian city modeled after Western European cities and is Russia's second-largest metropolis as well as a major cultural and commercial center. Also know for its "Winter Nights" (during June) and the location of the historic Winter Palace of the Czars, St. Petersburg is one of the most diverse and captivating cities found in Eastern Europe.

AMSTERDAM Capital of The Netherlands, Amsterdam is a world center for diamond-cutting and a major financial center. Also known for its canals, windmills, and a fabulous art museum, the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam has always been one of Europe's most popular destinations.

PRAGUE Situated on both banks of the Vltava River, Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is known as one of the world's most popular emerging tourist destinations. Mostly unscathed during World War II, Prague boasts extraordinary architecture and beauty which, coupled with its long history as a center for the arts and literature along with being the center of the Czech resistance to the Soviet Invasion during 1968, make Prague a global center for culture and thought.
