Collect your brand new Peugeot lease in Munich, Germany - the start and end point of your Eastern European drive. Here you will be introduced and instructed on how to use the vehicle and then are free to explore at your own pace. There are numerous museums and galleries in Munich, so Auto Europe suggests spending a few days exploring the many attractions. Munich is famous for its exquisite churches, including Peterskirche - the oldest Romanesque period inner city church and the Cathedral of our Lady (Frauenkirche) - the city's most famous building. Take your time and relax in the numerous parks of Munich, in particular the quaint English Garden (Englischer Garten), which is known as the world's largest urban public park.
Next stop is Prague, approximately five hours north of Munich and the capital of the Czech Republic. Be marvelled by Prague's 100-year-old skyline and the number of ancient domed churches and soaring old towers that make Prague one of Europe's architectural gems. The city is covered in hints of style from centuries past including Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance. Must-sees include the famous Charles Bridge over the Vltava River, the splendid Jewish Quarter, the many historic churches, and the energetic theatrical and music scene providing plenty of exciting entertainment.
Enjoy the four hour scenic drive from Vienna to Bratislava through picturesque rural farmland and vineyards. Make a stop at Brno for a bite to eat and continue towards Vienna. Vienna is one of Europe's most visited cities and located on the banks of the beautiful Danube River, which has influenced much of its charm and rich history. For centuries Vienna was the gateway between west and east Europe and today it continues to attract visitors with its many historic sights, events and entertainment.
Approximately one hour east of Vienna is the next destination, Bratislava. Drive along the Danube for a scenic view or via the motorways for the most direct route. Bratislava's main square is in the centre of the city and most attractions surround it. Visit the Bratislava City Museum and marvel at the ancient torture instruments and the old town dungeons. There are also many cafes and shops along the medieval streets of the city. Bratislava may be Europe's most relaxed city with its old-town charm, sophisticated restaurants, traditional pubs and a music scene ranging from jazz to opera.
Budapest is the capital of Hungary, approximately two and a half hours west of Bratislava and home to numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites. With the River Danube flowing through it, Budapest is famous for its stunning architecture and its notable thermal springs, which have been used for hundreds of years as therapeutic treatment. Budapest attracts more than 20 million visitors annually from across the globe to its countless historical UNESCO sites, museums and art galleries. Sports fanatics will also love its sports halls, stadiums and the Hungaroring Formula 1 racetrack.
From Budapest, the distance to Zagreb is between a three and five hour drive depending which route you take. Zagreb is a thriving inland city and the political and cultural centre of Croatia. Zagreb is home to some of the country's best museums, restaurants and shopping. While most people travelling to Croatia head directly for the country's long, beautiful coastline and beaches, Zagreb offers plenty of other attractions. Most of Zagreb's major attractions are in the city centre, which consists of two main sections; Gornji Grad (Upper Town) and Donji Grad (Lower Town). Upper Town houses Zagreb's Cathedral and parliament building whilst Lower Town is more modernised and known for its museums and theatre scene.
After seeing city after city in this Eastern European Peugeot drive, it's now time to get back in touch with nature in Slovenia, approximately an hour and a half west of Zagreb. In this part of the world, life does not revolve around shopping and consumerism. Ljubljana offers a selection of outdoor activities to indulge in. Visit Å pica - located on the river banks, where expanses of wooden terraces are perfect for having a picnic on the riverside. Don't miss the Labyrinth of art, which was designed by a Bulgarian artist and explores the concept of the creation of new green areas in urban settings. The labyrinth consists of 287 trees with a pathway leading from its entrance to an island for reading located at its heart.
Continue north for around three hours and you will arrive in Salzburg - one of Europe's most beautiful cities admired for its architecture and amazing natural setting. Located on the banks of the Salzach River, this picturesque city is complemented by narrow medieval streets and cobbled courtyards. Fans of Mozart will enjoy Salzburg as it is his birthplace and is reflected in attractions such as the museum in his birth home and various festivals. Your Peugeot lease makes it easy to travel outside of the city, and located about an hour out of Salzburg is the world's largest system of ice caves (Eisriesenwelt), a must-see attraction!
From Salzburg you return to Munich where you will return your Peugeot lease.
