Has the 21st century gone missing? Look around. It seems as if time has stopped among half-timbered villages almost too quaint to be real. Amid storybook countryside and alongside a mighty river. Explore Austria's splendid Wachau Valley and an undiscovered corner of the Czech Republic. We hope it stays this way forever
