Urgent!! Vienna safe?

Hi

Can someone advise me if I should travel by train to Vienna from Prague? I have bought train ticket etc for 1 June. Should I cancel or go on to Vienna despite the flood?

Thanks

Vienna is safe! Do not worry! Vienna owns a very good flooding protection, the biggest probems occur in smaller towns along rivers West of Vienna.

It's probably safer than Prague!

Flood defences are being deployed in Prague and Charles bridge closed.

Norman is correct you are going to be safer in Vienna.

I'm in very wet Vienna at the moment. No danger of flooding, but it does put a bit of a dampener on proceedings.
