You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Shop till you drop at Andrassy Avenue and Central Market Hall. You'll explore and learn at House of Terror Museum and Hungarian National Museum. Change things up with a short trip to Priest's Island (Pap-sziget) in Szentendre (about 36 minutes away). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Matthias Church, appreciate the history behind Shoes on the Danube, step into the grandiose world of Buda Castle, and boost your wellbeing at Gellert Spa.

Prague lures millions of tourists each year with its World Heritage-listed medieval city center--a labyrinth of narrow lanes, bridges, cathedrals, and palaces overlooked by a thousand-year-old castle.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Lobkowicz Palace and Czech Paradise. Your inner history buff will appreciate Prague Castle and Prague Astronomical Clock. Venture out of the city with trips to Vridelni kolonada (in Karlovy Vary) and St. George Forest (Svatojirsky les) (in Mcely). Spend the 15th (Sat) exploring nature at Bohemian Switzerland National Park. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Katedrala Svateho Vita, look for all kinds of wild species at Devil's Channel, and look for gifts at BOTAS 66.
