Winter 2020
Japan, Imperial Splendors of Russia, Majestic Slovenia, Oregon Shakespeare

For something new, check out our first-time offering to Majestic Slovenia. This small country, tucked between Austria, Hungary and Croatia, is a gem that I thoroughly enjoyed visiting last April.

Lastly, join Dr. Susan Kresin, Department of Slavic, East European and Eurasian Languages, on our Imperial Splendors of Russia tour to St. Petersburg and Moscow. This trip is already over half-way sold!

Majestic Slovenia
Step into an Alpine storybook at Lake Bled where swans glide in the shadow of a cliff-top castle. Sample honey at a bee farm, and descend into fascinating Postojna Cave, one of Europe’s most popular tourist attractions. Hear stories about past owners of the massive Renaissance Predjama Castle, built into the mouth of a cave.
