Imagine a picturesque landscape dotted with famous castles, medieval towers and grand 20th-century buildings. These are just a few of the many vivid, and unexpectedly breathtaking, images of Slovakia I couldn’t get out of my head when I returned from a recent Adventures by Disney Danube River Cruise.

On this unforgettable trip you can uncover hidden gems while exploring the heart and capital of Slovakia, Bratislava. Trek up to Devin Castle and enjoy private archery lessons, and take part in other medieval experiences while savoring views of the Danube River. Then visit Schloss Hof, a Baroque Austrian palace that will transport you back in time. Here you’ll delight in rich storytelling, chocolate tasting and even waltzing in the grand ballroom.

Here is just a glimpse of the adventures you can experience on your day in Slovakia.

Foodies, you’ll want to stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for our next video, which will highlight Adventures by Disney Danube river cruise experiences in Vienna, Austria. I promise there’s more than you can imagine to feast on in this Imperial City.
