Located between Melk and Krems, Wachau Valley has truly earned its status as the most scenic area of Europe. Almost each curve of the Danube River opens amazing landscapes, numerous historical and cultural monuments –catholic abbeys and castles built up on the hills by warriors-bandits. The Wachau Valley tour will enable you to touch the centuries-long history of Austria and the culture of medieval and contemporary Austrians. The highlight of the excursion will be your visit to Benedictine Melk Abbey – one of the oldest abbeys in Europe. This monastery has been the spirit of the country for more than thousand years and now the abbey church with its enormous dome and towers stands proud on a rocky cliff over the Danube River welcoming its visitors.
