The Beauty on the Danube

Fall in love in the heart of Europe on the Danube River and be charmed by the people and places of Slovakia. Here, the beautiful squares and hilly scenes of Bratislava beckon with castles, cathedrals, and cosy cafes. No wonder this capital city is called The Beauty on the Danube for its architectural finery, friendly spirit, and scenic Carpathian Mountains surrounding its 18th-century pedestrian old town.

Slovakia Highlights


Don't let the baroque palaces and Renaissance remembrances of this ancient city fool you. The capital of Slovakia's pedestrian-only old town has one of Europe's most youthful vibes. Perhaps follow your Avalon Adventure Host on a short hike to lofty Bratislava Castle for magnificent views of the old town and the Danube below.
