The Danube River is significant for over-water passenger and freight transportation. Probably the nicest way to arrive in Bratislava is by way of the River Danube. The Danube is the most important river transportation artery - it connects Bratislava, Vienna and Budapest. Thanks to the Danube-Rhine-Mohan canal, it connects the North Sea with the Black Sea. Between April and September boats leave to Vienna and Budapest more times a day from the hydrofoil terminal (Fajnorovo nábrezvie 2). www.lod.sk
