THE MYSTERIOUS LEGEND
This tour takes you to one of the greatest Slovak tourist attractions lying at the border of the Little and White Carpathians, the small town of Cachtice. There is the most mysterious bloody legend woven round Cachtice castle and its 17th century countess Elizabeth Bathory… After leaving Bratislava it will take us only approximately 60 minutes to get to our starting point – the foot of the castle hill.
Of course, you will have enough time to enjoy your lunch and stroll around the town centre on your own, to have an ice cream or a cup of coffee in one of the coffee shops located at the central square. And not to forget, there is a relaxing time reserved for you to sit back and taste a variety of delicious wines or spirits made by our local host during the tour, too (INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF TOUR).
We will return to Bratislava between 6 and 8pm in plenty of time so you can enjoy your evening meal and drink in Bratislava city centre.
The ultimate tour of the north-west Slovakia!
