Confederation Centre of the Arts is launching a distinctive experience for members of its Founders Circle—the chance to join an exclusive 11-day cultural adventure to the Imperial Cities: Prague, Vienna, and Budapest.

With proceeds going to support arts and heritage programming at the Centre, this group travel tour comes at the request of the Founders’ Circle membership. Taking place from October 21 to 31, 2019, this trip will be organized by partners at CAA Travel, with flights leaving from Charlottetown. CAA are the production sponsor for the Centre’s crown jewel, Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™.

Hosted by Founders’ Circle Members John Steinsky, the Honorary Consul of the Czech Republic, and Brenda Steinsky, this expedition will include castle tours, guided excursions, a classical music performance, and a cruise down the Danube River.

“Our membership has been asking for a group travel experience and we have listened,” remarks Steve Bellamy, CEO of Confederation Centre. “We are thankful to the Steinskys for their hospitality and to our members for their commitment to supporting arts and heritage programs at the Centre. This promises to be an unforgettable tour of the Imperial Cities and the Steinskys are already going above and beyond building the itinerary.”

The tour will also include a Renaissance-style dinner in a medieval castle near Budapest and a stop at the Lobkowicz Palace, home to the largest art collection in the Czech Republic, spanning over 600 years of family history. Other highlights consist of wine-sampling and dinner in the picturesque Grinzing region, and countryside views and cultural outings in each of the cities.
