New river line between Vienna and Bratislava

THE TWIN City Liner will soon connect the capital cities of Slovakia and Austria along the Danube River. As of June, the liner will travel between Vienna and Bratislava six times a day, with a one-way trip costing €25 (Sk900).

The Twin City Liner belongs to the Central-Danube company, a joint venture of Wien Holding and Vienna's Raiffeisen Landesbank, the Hospodárske noviny paper wrote.

Central-Danube invested €3 million (Sk112 million) into the liner, which was produced in Norway.
