Vienna , State Opera House, Austria
Brilliant Bratislava is barely an hour away from Vienna and this day tour is the ideal way to discover the Slovakian capital’s many delights. Enjoy a walking tour through its historic streets and then hop aboard a boat for a cruise along the Danube to enjoy a new perspective. This picturesque city is one of Europe’s few remaining hidden gems.
Bratislava’s position in the heart of Europe has made it a melting pot of cultures and the city boasts many Hungarian and Austrian features as well as Slovakian. Explore the picturesque old town and see some of the architectural marvels that dot the medieval core. See the grandiose Primate’s Palace, a fairytale building painted in pink and white that is considered the most beautiful palace in the city. In fact, the whole of the centre is so picture postcard pretty that you will be hard pressed to decide which building you like the most. Perhaps it will be the Renaissance-style Town Hall or the blue Church of St Elizabeth, or maybe even the gloriously gothic St Martin’s Cathedral.
Stroll in the busy area around St Michael’s Street. Take a photo or two of the medieval St Michael’s Gate and then prepare to experience the sensation of travelling at high speed along the Danube. As you are whisked along back to Vienna, you will have the opportunity to admire castles as well as the untouched and protected Danube River wetlands and Danube-Auen National Park.
