The capital of Slovakia and a beautiful city straddling two sides of the Danube, Bratislava is a popular tourist destination in Europe that features plenty of attractions. Tourists often flock to the Old Town quarter, a historic area that dates back to several centuries. In this quarter, you can also find the magnificent Baroque Palaces, with their awe-inspiring architecture, as well as Mozart House, where Mozart performed for the Palffy clan when he was only six years old. Don't miss out on the chance to marvel at the Gothic Cathedral of St. Martin, the coronation church for the kings and queens of Hungary for three centuries.

As the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava naturally features many world-famous restaurants that serve the finest local specialties. Special mentions go to the Modrá Hviezda, a small restaurant in the Old Town quarter of the city. However, for the best local dishes, try the Bratislava Flagship.

Passau is a German city in Lower Bavaria, located at the confluence of three rivers: the Danube, Inn, and Ilk. Known as the Three Rivers City, Passau is a popular college town with many students attending the University of Passau.

One of Passau's most famous attractions is the Veste Oberhaus, an ancient fortress dating back to the 13th century. The impressive Gothic structure today includes a museum and, due to its hilltop location, excellent views of Passau's rivers and city. St. Stephen's Cathedral, a magnificent Baroque cathedral, is also worth a stop. However, if you simply want to enjoy a stroll around the city, the square in front of the cathedral is an excellent starting place to encounter some of Passau's most beautiful architecture.

Passau is located right on Germany's border with Austria, so the city is very easy to reach from Austrian cities like Linz or Salzburg. Travel options include intercity bus service with FlixBus and Union Ivkoni or train service with Deutsche Bahn.
