Finally on August 1st
We haven’t been able to visit our neighbours for over three months. However, 1 August sees the wait come to an end. The new Twin City Liner will return to its regular route and connect Vienna with the Slovakian capital. Bratislava is an exceptional city just 60 kilometres away from Vienna on the Danube river. It will be far less crowded there this summer owing to the coronavirus. The Twin City Liner needs just 75 minutes to cover the distance. On a day trip with the modern high-speed catamaran, visitors can cover all of the most important sights and attractions such as the castle, the old town and several museums in a relaxed manner. The castle, which sits majestically upon a rock, is Bratislava’s landmark. From there, an unforgettable view across the city and the Danube opens up. The beautifully laid out castle garden also invites passers-by to linger a while. Bratislava’s old town, also known as Staré Mesto, continues to serve as the centre of the Danubian metropolis. It isn’t particularly large, but a wander through the narrow alleyways at the historical heart of the city is highly recommended.
