Around The World - East To West: Istanbul To Vienn

Season 12, Episode 8 of 30

Ian Wright takes up the journey in Istanbul following historic trails through the heart of Europe and the Balkans, where once the Ottomans pushed into Europe. Crossing the Black Sea into Bulgaria, he explores vampire myths before continuing to Serbia, where the Nis Skull Tower stands as a reminder of Ottoman raids and rule. After a ride on the Š argan Eight Narrow Gauge Railway, it's on to the Croatian coast and a road trip to Dubrovnik, Split and Rijeka. After a quick dip in the world's largest thermal lake in Hungary, his journey ends in Vienna, old world capital of wide avenues and wedding cake mansions that withstood Ottoman attack and that stands in full splendor until this day.
