The offer again includes a popular cruise to the Gabčíkovo Waterworks with a new restaurant and sightseeing ship Harmónia. This unique cruise lasts 6 hours and there are 3 dates to choose from in the summer months.

The intention of the builders of the Gabčíkovo Waterworks, completed in 1992, was to prevent floods and create a reliable fairway in the ever-changing Danube River. Two locks and a hydroelectric power plant were built in Gabčíkovo. The locks are situated on the left side of the river. A 10-meter wide road bridge leads over the water level. The operation of the power plant is fully automated. You can watch the whole process directly from the upper deck of the ship. Each of the locks has dimensions of 34 x 275 meters with a minimum water depth of 4.5 meters and allows ships to overcome the height difference in the range of 16 – 23 meters. Each of the locks can hold up to 299,000 m3 of water. Filling and emptying the locks takes about 30 minutes. And you can be a part too!
