Carpathian Wine Tour
Wine tour near Bratislava that takes you for wine tasting at local producer in Little Carpathian wine region is combined with a walk into the vineyards above the town of Svätý Jur. 3-hour or 4-hour tour by train from Bratislava into the real countryside.
Why to visit Little Carpathian Wine Region
Svätý Jur is a picturesque small town settled above the vineyards of Little Carpathian mountains, located only 15 kilometers north from Bratislava city centre. Cozy atmosphere and history of this place make it a perfect destination for a short trip from Bratislava.
You can choose from two versions of this experience. Carpathian Wine and Walk Tour (3 hours) is a private wine tasting at local wine cellar with a walk into the vineyards. Carpathian Wine and Bike Tour (4 hours) is an adventurous journey into the vineyards on e-bicycles with wine tasting in the same renaissance house.
Easily the most unique tour I have been on ever. You can only see so many churches, castles and palaces. Seeing the recent socialism past was a very different and eye-opening trip through Bratislava. This is what Bratislava is all about. Truly enjoyable and overwhelming.
This was without doubt the best guided experience I have had to date. Juro did an fantastic job – both knowledgeable, enthusiastic and able tailor the experience to us. I give my highest recommendations to Authentic Slovakia.
It was a fascinating trip through this dystopian architects’ playground, and a really interesting look at how a small city like Bratislava has coped with the onslaught of communism and the effects of sudden urbanisation and centralized planning.
