Danube River, Bratislava
After having a long day of sightseeing from all the castles and others, Relax by the Danube river and enjoy the atmosphere! The Bratislava castle can also be seen from here! You could also hop on a boat nearby for a river tour at the Danube. So, Grab a cup of cappuccino and some local delicacies and enjoy the sunset!
Well a river might not be a thing to see. But for river Danube, I guess there might be a difference. This one river passes through many important cities and hence, I guess, it might be something worth seeing. The Danube river flows through ten countries, viz., Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine. It passes through important cities and many country capitals like Vienna (Austria), Bratislava (Slovakia), Budapest (Hungary) and Belgrade (Serbia). Therefore it plays an important role in trade and tourism. It is known by various names in various languages across europe such as in Bulgarian, Croatian and Serbian as Dunav, Czech, Polish and Slovak as Dunaj, in German as Donau, Hungarian as Duna, Italian as Danubio, Slovenian as Donava, in Romanian as Dunãre, in Russian and Ukrainian as Dunay, in Latin as Danubius, Greek as Istros, Turkish as Tuna and finally in French as Danube, which is now the more accepted name. the Danube is the longest river in the European Union and the second longest in europe after the Volga.
I can recommend to all travellers to make a beautiful trip on the river Danube. The ships leave from the port on the Danube (near Hotel Danube).
You can choose from the trips to Vienna (cca 2 hrs), to Budapest (cca 4 hrs), or make a round trip near Bratislava.
The season begins at the end of April and finishes at the end of September.
The Danube runs through Bratislava and even in the winter you'll find hotels and restaurants in boats docked along the side.
Unlike Budapest, the river at this point has much less ice at this point in the winter and therefore is used much more.
Danube (DONAU) river runs through Bratislava. The city centre is on one side of the river, with house boat and restaurants. The other side towards the Austrian border is almost empty. You can easily walk over to the other side on one of the bridges.
As some of u might know, Bratislava is under water, like whole Central Europe...
And the european second largest river is really above its usual level...
People r having fun watching everything getting flooded...
There is an easy connection by boat from Bratislava to Vienna - its takes 75 mins ish so a little longer than the train or car but you get to go down the danube - what could be nicer!
cost ivaies depending on time etc. but between 15 and 25 euros and it goes three times a day in each direction.
The Danube river flows through the Bratislava, and there are lots of boat-restaurants and you can take a cruise down and up the Danube. There is also a Nice new bridge over the river, with the restaurant on the top of it.
here you are one of the biggest river in Europe!
it's quite impressive, and it also was bigger than usual, because of the flood of august 2002...
The promenade along the river is a geat place for a leisurely stroll. I enjoyed sitting in the hot sunshine on the grass banking and the Danube was blue!
It's only a river, but it's the 2nd largest in Europe. Bratislava is just one of the capital cities it flows through
