Vienna - Budapest

The route from Vienna to Budapest passes through another exciting capital, Bratislava, before crossing old industrial complexes of the Stalinist era, baroque towns and the wine-producing town of Tata, at the foot of the Gerecse Mountains.

The section counts three exciting capitals that are worth a visit on their own. After leaving Vienna and passing through the prairies and forests in Eastern Austria, you will enter Bratislava, the friendly Slovak capital with enjoable white wines and preserved medieval city walls.

The route continues on the canalised Danube in the industrial area around Medvedov. Crossing the Hungarian border, you can visit the wine producing town of Tata and the baroque towns of Visegrad, Vac and Szentendre. The section ends in Budapest, home to a beautiful ancient city centre and numerous spas.

  • Komárom, Hungary/Slovakia

    Komárom is a home to the Mediawave Festival every spring, an art and jazz festival which is mainly held in its massive fortress, an interesting point to check out at any time, with a museum in it nowadays. The city was divided into two after World War I, making it partly Slovakian and partly Hungarian on the two sides of the Danube. © Zsolt Andrasi (Flickr)
