Boat Bike Tours Slovakia; baroque boat bike adventures
Bratislava is sometimes looked over by those exploring central Europe, falling in the shadow of its stately neighboring capitals, Vienna and Budapest. But that doesn’t have to be the case if you choose one of our Boat Bike Tours Slovakia. Not only do you get to explore the exceptional baroque architecture of green and underrated Bratislava, which lies nestled between the foothills of the Little Carpathian Mountains and the Danube River, but you also have the chance to traverse its countryside on the way to and from other European capitals.
Explore the best of Bratislava on a boat bike tour in Slovakia
The Slovakian capital city is a perfect stop on a cycle and cruise tour — it’s compact old town offers a quick and easy stroll through a rich history as a river trading center, part of the Great Moravian Empire, and the former coronation city of Hungarian kings. Architecture lovers will appreciate baroque creations like Grassalkovich Palace, classical and renaissance influences, and the fine Gothic style of St Martin’s Cathedral and the Franciscan Church, contrasting heavily with Soviet-era apartment buildings outside of the old town.
Stopping by hilltop Bratislava Castle and learning about the thousands of years of human settlement here is a must, as well as enjoying the view out across the city. From here you can also see into Austria and perhaps even catch a glimpse of the wine-producing country you’ll soon be cycling through on your boat bike tour in Slovakia!
Slovakia and beyond — even more European cycling and cruising
Our boat bike tours in Slovakia don’t just stop in Bratislava but also include the Slovakian village of Devin, home to the cliff-top ruins of Devin Castle, which dates back to medieval times and was destroyed by Napoleon. It keeps eternal watch over the Danube River, which our tours follow through verdant rural landscapes on the way to or from Austria or while heading in the direction of Hungary and the Esztergom Basilica just across the border.
And if that’s not enough, all our tours visiting Slovakia depart from Passau, Germany, visiting the wonders of Vienna, the vineyards and fortresses of Austria’s Wachau Valley and the Danube’s stunning Schlögener Schlinge loop on the way.
