After your ship arrives in Kalocsa, we visit Puszta, where an exciting equestrian show will take place. The next port of call is Bezdan, before an overnight sailing to Novi Sad.

You’ll spend today sailing on the Danube. Take in the views as your ship navigates the Iron Gates, an amazing stretch that passes through narrow gorges before opening out into a mountain lake. A gala evening has been arranged on board.
