Weather can be checked via a computer Google of a country and city. we were there in August so do not have personal experience.Weather in Europe has the the variations as in USA. This is not a tropical area.
I would like to book the boat trip from Bratislava to Vienna and disembark in Vienna - as I am going to stay there for a few days. Is this possible or should it be a roundtrip? Karmen
