Enjoy a half-day trip to Slovakia's beautiful capital - Bratislava. Located along the banks of the Danube River, Bratislava is just 60km from Vienna, and is the perfect tour for those looking to visit a former communist capital in half a day.
Our driver will pick you up from your hotel at a time convenient for you, and whisk you away to nearby Bratislava in just 45 minutes. At the destination, our local guide will take you on a 3-hour tour of the city covering the city's most iconic sights. The tour starts with a drive along the banks of the blue Danube, taking you past the Novy Most Bridge, one of the city's most distinctive features that looks like a UFO. Next, you will pass by the Slovak Parliament, located on the hillside close to Bratislava Castle, which is reached in just a short ride through the city's romantic, cobbled streets. After a stop at Bratislava castle, we will show you the WWII defensive bunker. Bunker BS-8 is an amazing place. Despite its two large anti-tank cannons and machine-gun turrets it is virtually invisible until you are right on top of it - which, of course, was the idea. This was part of a line of concealed defenses designed to halt an armored advance into 1930s Czechoslovakia.
Your tour ends with a lovely walk through Bratislava's old town. Your guide will show you the main sights including Michael's Gate, the Slovak national theatre, the Academia Istropolitana, the old Town Hall and of course the cathedral of St. Martin. You also see the baroque Palffy Palace, where Mozart performed at the age of six, as well as the de Pauli's palace. Franz Liszt gave his break-through concert there when he was only nine years old.
After your tour you will have ample time in the old town for lunch before the short drive back to Vienna.
