The short but attractive section of EuroVelo 13 in Slovakia includes the country’s capital, Bratislava, which is well worth a visit. As part of Czechoslovakia, Slovakia was on the Eastern side of the Iron Curtain and bordered neutral Austria on the other side of the Iron Curtain. The Slovakian section of EuroVelo 13 is mostly located on the banks of the Rivers Morava and Danube and passes several reminders of more troubled times, including a complex defensive system of 100 bunkers and fortifications next to the Czech-Slovak-Austrian border built during WWII.

EuroVelo 13 - Iron Curtain Trail is a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe since 2019.
