LOCAL TASTE The town of Ceske Budejovice was once called Budweis, and ever since it was founded in the 13th century beer brewing has been an important industry. In the 16th century this beer became known as the “Beer of Kings.” When Adolphus Busch and Carl Conrad visited Budweis in the 19th century, they decided to produce their own version of the beer back home in the USA and named it “Budweiser” “of Budweis,” and gave it the motto “King of Beers.”

" There are few places on Earth touched by so much history. From the Romans and the Hun invaders to the horrors of fascism and communism, Eastern Europe has seen it all. Here, you can see the scars of history on the countries and buildings. You can bear witness to the effects on the people living here, the same people who survived it all and still had the strength for peaceful revolution. Eastern Europe is a fascinating region, and I look forward to sharing it with you."

" Many people have ancestors from Central Europe. Maybe you do as well! Come discover this unique part of the world. I love showing travelers the spirit of these countries through history, culture, and lifestyle. Born in Hungary, I know this region well, and am sure you'll enjoy each moment. You'll return home with the greatest memories and a little piece of my heart! Don't call it a dream, call it a plan!"

" See the most vibrant part of Europe and let me show you the "other side" of the Old Continent-where the borders are still shifting, where history has been rewritten, and the "bad boys" turned good overnight after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain."
