The Slovak capital of Bratislava is a mere hour from Vienna but working out how to get to another country on vacation might put you off a visit. This excursion is the answer, packaging hotel pickup, round-trip coach transport, and a walking tour of the Old Town into one relaxing day trip. Your tour includes a high-speed catamaran cruise on the Danube River.

  • Get the lowdown on Bratislava’s sights from a local guide when you arrive
  • Find the main sights on a walking tour and hear tips for attractions to visit

What to Expect
Leave Vienna by comfortable, climate-controlled coach and cross the border of Austria to Slovakia, your destination for the day. In just an hour, you’ll stop in Bratislava, the country’s captivating capital city, framed by the Little Carpathian mountains. Get your bearings on a walking tour of Bratislava Old Town and hear the history behind landmarks such as Grassalkovich Palace and the Primate’s Palace with its pastel pink façade. Then, make the most of an afternoon of free time to have lunch or explore the city at your own pace. The Slovak National Theatre and the bars and cafes of the center are worth visiting.
