Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.
River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.
Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.
Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.
These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Tokaj, along with a brief description:
♦ Finach Hill Lookout Tower
If you’ve ever wanted to witness where two rivers meet, you can check this sight off your bucket list in Tokaj. A quick 10-minute climb up this tower will reward you with superb views of plains, vineyards, and of course the point where the Bodrog and Tisza Rivers converge. Once at the top, you can sit on one of the benches and enjoy the peaceful ambiance (perhaps with a glass of wine!).
♦ Tokaj Museum
A great way to discover more about Tokaj’s rich history is by paying a visit to the Tokaj Museum. Housed in the former home of a Greek wine trader, you can discover all you’ve ever wanted to know about local history through exhibits displaying artwork and artifacts such as baskets and glasses. Some of the most unique highlights of this museum include the attic (where you can learn more about Hungarian life during the early centuries) and the basement (which houses a wine cellar).
♦ Himesudvar Winery
Wine-lovers rejoice – the Himesudvar Winery is a must-stop during any visit to Tokaj. During your visit here, you can partake in a special wine tasting that consists of a few different wines produced on-site, while learning about each one. You can also opt to tour the wine cellar. This winery is family-owned and is known for its outstanding service and cozy atmosphere. If you’re impressed by what you taste, you can also purchase some wine to bring back home!
