With Maine Public Classical
Classical Danube Cruise
with Maine Public Radio host Mark Vogelzang
October 16–26, 2020
Join Maine Public Classical and Minnesota Public Radio for an exclusive cruise down the Blue Danube! Explore world class museums, grand opera houses and the celebrated symphony halls of Budapest, Bratislava, Salzburg, Vienna, and Prague! Your journey begins with three included pre-cruise nights in historic Prague. Walk in the footsteps of Dvorak, Smetana and Mozart while in the Czech capital. In Vienna, we’ll celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday, savor Sachertorte in a local café, spend time in one of the many marvelous museums and dine with the locals in a charming wine cellar frequented by the great composers. Enjoy backstage tours, numerous classical concerts and special insider experiences. Visit the homes of Liszt, Mozart and Beethoven! Musicians from the Minnesota Orchestra will also join us for intimate recitals aboard our privately chartered ship, the luxurious Scenic Ruby.
