Explore Bratislava on Cruises in Europe

For visitors hoping to witness historical and cultural sights during their cruise holiday, Bratislava boasts many notable places of interest. Fabulous buildings and historic sites punctuate the city and the Basilica of St Egidius, a superb example of Gothic architecture, contains 11 ornate altarpieces that grace the interior. During cruises in Europe why not discover the City Gallery, the second largest of its kind in Slovakia, which can be found in the Old Town of Bratislava? Exhibiting an estimated 35,000 pieces of exquisite artwork that are spread throughout two ancient buildings, it is a must-see for many people enjoying cruises in Europe.

The majestic Bratislava Castle proudly overlooks the River Danube and its meandering ramparts lead to some of the prime viewpoints over the city. A contrast of traditional red-roofed houses in the Old Town and the modern houses of Petržalka provide an interesting insight into the city's history and its development in more recent years. With so many exciting attractions it is understandable why cruises in Europe are enjoyed by so many of Great Rail Journey's customers.

After plenty of sightseeing there are numerous pavement cafés where you can relax and watch the world go by before returning to the ship to continue your cruise in Europe. For further details of Great Rail Journeys' fantastic cruises, browse through the individual itineraries.
