Fairy-tale sights
While Spain imported many architectural styles - you'll see variations of North Africa's Moorish arcades in extravagant palaces, French Gothic and Romanesque arches dressing cathedrals, and columns and ornate detailing synonymous with Italian Renaissance and Baroque design in basilicas and plazas throughout the country. Spanish artists and architects made indelible marks with visions of their own. Antoni Gaudí i Cornet began the Modernism movement in Barcelona, surprising the world with wildly whimsical buildings. The works of Golden Age artist Velázquez and 18th-century painter Goya draw legions of visitors to Madrid's Prado Museum.

Speaking of Traditions... From castles to concerts to cafés, time-honored traditions are at the heart of cultural life you'll experience in the center of "Old Europe." Sip coffee in a city square surrounded by architecturally rich, medieval buildings in Cracow or Budapest or Vienna or Prague... enjoy a pastry known to Hungarians as rétes, to Czechs as závin, to Austrians as strudel... listen to local musicians play melodies by Chopin in Warsaw, Mozart in a private palace in Vienna, and Beethoven during a special evening at Lobkowicz Palace at Prague Castle... and immerse in history that changed the world.
