Vienna – Bratislava - Budapest

Here we go! Today we are heading more East towards Slovakia and Hungary. It’s a funny day as we will enter Slovakia first to visit its capital; small and incredibly gorgeous Bratislava (only approx. 80km from Vienna which will leave us enough time to have a nice visit and a lunch there) then pass to Hungary and again now its capital Budapest on our way to Tatras mountain range further to the East (meaning at the end we will again end up in Slovakia). Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, is set along the Danube River by the border with Austria and Hungary. It’s surrounded by vineyards and the Little Carpathian Mountains, crisscrossed with forested hiking and cycling trails. The pedestrian-only, 18th-century old town is known for its lively bars and cafes. Perched atop a hill, the reconstructed Bratislava Castle overlooks old town and the Danube. After a visit of Bratislava and its beautiful small streets, historic statues that tell a lot of Eastern European history, charming squares and cafes; enriched with a brief story of its famous inhabitants. Passing through Bratislava we will be heading to our destination and Hungarian capital Budapest.

The central area of Budapest along the Danube River is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has several notable monuments, including the Hungarian Parliament and the Buda Castle. The city also has around 80 geothermal springs, the largest thermal water cave system, second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building in the world. Budapest attracts around 12 million international tourists per year, making it a highly popular destination in Europe. The city was chosen as the Best European Destination of 2019, a major poll conducted by EBD, a tourism organization partnering with the European Commission. It also topped the Best European Destinations 2020 list.

After the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany at the start of World War II, the newly defined Distrikt Krakau (Kraków District) became the capital of Germany's General Government. The Jewish population of the city was forced into a walled zone known as the Kraków Ghetto, from which they were sent to German extermination camps such as the nearby Auschwitz, and the Nazi concentration camps like Płaszów. However, the city was spared from destruction and major bombing. It is possible to arrange as well the visit to Auswitz during the rest day; it is a 1 hour ride from Krakow.
