Bratislava, Slovakia

The Carpathian mountain range begins within the city region with mountains which are called Small Carpathians.

Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia, occupying both banks of the Danube River and the left bank of the Morava River. It is also the only national capital that borders two independent countries, Hungary and Austria. 


Duernstein, Austria

Dürnstein is a small town on the Danube river, in Lower Austria.  It is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the Wachau region and also a well-known wine growing area. The town gained its name from the medieval castle, Burgruine Dürnstein and it means "dry" and  "stone". The castle was dry because it was situated on a rocky hill, high above the damp conditions of the Danube at the base of the hill, and it was built of stone.

Linz, Austria

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote his Symphony No. 36 (1783) in Linz for a concert to be given there, and the work is known today as the Linz Symphony.

Linz is the third-largest city of Austria and capital of the state of Upper Austria. It is located in the north centre of Austria, approximately 30 km south of the Czech border, on both sides of the river Danube. Its highlights are the Cathedral, the art museum, the theatre and the railway bridge, especially at night.

Melk, Austria

One of the most beautiful sights are the impressive Melk Benedictine abbey on the top of a steep rocky hill.

Melk is a city of Austria next to the wachaou valley along the Danube. In a very small area, Melk presents a great deal of architectural variety from many centuries.


Passau, Germany

The Passau is rich in green and the view of the river is breathtaking.

Passau is a town in Lower Bavaria, Germany. It is also known as the "City of Three Rivers," because the Danube is joined at Passau by the Inn from the south and the Ilz from the north.Tourism in Passau focuses mainly on the three rivers, the St. Stephen's Cathedral and the "Old City". The town is dominated by the Veste Oberhaus and the former fortress of the Bishop, on the mountain crest between the Danube and the Ilz rivers. Right beside the town hall is the Scharfrichterhaus, an important jazz and cabaret stage on which political cabaret is performed.



Vienna, Austria

Whenever you visit Vienna, do not forget to try the chocolates.

Vienna is the capital of Austria. Its economy is based in manufacturing chemical products, porcelain, furniture and glassware. Very important role also has tourism to the economy. It is rich in art, museums and monuments. Is considered one of the most common destinations during Christmas especially because of its Christmas market.
