Very hard to top

Getting from Budapest to Prague using this transfer was the smartest move we made on our trip. Much better than having to content with airport waits and navigating through railway stations. Very comfortable van, a driver/courier who chatted with us and didn't lecture in depth but gave more than enough information about the places we stopped off. We saw much of the countryside, visiting two towns that we would have zoomed past if we had been in a rental vehicle. All-in-all using a Sidetrip Transfer is a no brainer!

The river has brought people, trade, and wealth to the region throughout history. In the 18th century the city prospered and that is when most of the beautiful Old Town was built.

    Lednice Palace

    What we'll do
    We will have a chance to walk around the beautiful and famous gardens surrounding the Palace during the tour. Lednice Palace and Gardens , the way we see them today, are designed in the 19th century for entertaining in the summer season. They palace is probably the best example of English Gothic style in Continental Europe. The Palace and Grounds, about 200h, are under UNESCO World Heritage protection due their unique architectural landscape.


    About Lednice
    Lednice Palace and Grounds is a fabulous example of wealth the nobility had in Europe in the 19th century. The Lichtenstein family had huge landholdings in the area that they had gathered gradually over the centuries through conquering, marrying, and buying. It was their loyalty to the Habsburg dynasty that raised the Lichtensteins to great prominence in the Austria-Hungarian Empire.

Budapest to Prague

Our June 4 Sidetrip from Budapest to Prague exceeded our expectations. My wife and I were expecting to be traveling with 3 others, but one of the other passengers dropped out so it was only 2 couples. Our driver arrived on time, in a comfortable van and our trip began. We had a mid morning stop in Gyor where we did a walking tour and a comfort station stop, nice small Hungarian town. Next stop was Bratislava where we did a walking tour and enjoyed lunch with local cuisine. The next scheduled stop was Lednice Palace, but we elected to skip that stop and proceed on to Prague. The scenery along the was was beautiful and traffic was not stressful, and our guide was knowledgeable, courteous and informative. We highly recommend Sidetrip.
