Bratislava and its surroundings offer great possibilities for bike tourism thus we (the Infoglobe editor staff) decided to try one of many bike trails along Danube. We departed from Slovakia's largest housing development, Petrzalka, to beautiful landscape of Lower Austria. In the first photo gallery, we are going to show you our road across border zone through the town of Wolfsthal to the medieval town of Hainburg. The view of golden fields, blue sky and colorful meadows was... captivating.
