in Bratislava for a day

by dobrovod

My family is planning a trip to Vienna in September. Since some of my ancestors are from Bratislava, I would like to visit there for a day. If someone could help me with the following questions, I would be appreciative:

1. Is one Saturday there enough to see a majority of the city?

2. Is there a reputable company that guides tours in English or would the city be best visited by one's self on foot?

3. Is Bratislava best visited from Vienna by train?

4. Do many people in Bratislava speak English, German or Russian?

5. What are typical souvenirs from Bratislava?

Thank you,
Michael

You can easily visit Bratislava from Vienna for a day trip. Either catch the train both ways or take the high speed boat down the Danube from Vienna and the train back. The boat takes an hour and a half - the first one goes at about 8.30am, trains return every hour until 11pm

The old centre of Bratislava is easy to explore on your own.

One day is more than enough to see Bratislava centre. It is a compact city and you need no guide. It is a popular day trip from Vienna. That's why it is better to visit on a weekday. Vienna is close by and has regular train connections. (1 hour, 50 mins) Most people in Bratislava speak English. The following travel report includes a walking tour through the city

Bratislava is an easy trip from Vienna. You can "do" it in a day, although we stayed overnight. We didn't manage to get to the castle in that time, so in one day I don't expect you would, unless you made a dedicate journey and missed out on something else. The tourist Info place on Michelstra offers guided walking tours. Have a look at my Bratislava tips. If you can manage it, don't miss out on the tea room mentioned in my tips. As for souvenirs...... I can't remember anything specific, although I did buy a calendar of local scenes. No problem with making ourselves understood in English and where language let us down, smiles and signs worked wonders!!

Train probably will be the most comfortable + quite cheap.
There are EURegio type tickets available - Wien-Bratislava-Wien (14 euro) - http://europetrainsguide.com/200907166/Countries/Austria/Austria-OEBB.html

Re: in Bratislava for a day

A day is plenty.
Alternative is the bus. It goes every hour from Sudtyrolplatz in Vienna and I think it's 16 euros return. You get to see a little of the Austrian countryside en route. The buses are Slovak lines/Euro lines.
Most people speak some English.
Lots of cool cheap stuff to buy - shot glasses, tourist tat stuff.

Travel Tips for Bratislava

See the castle

by deeper_blue

Bratislava castle is the focal point of the city, located on the hill on the north bank of the Danube. It makes for a good walk up to get good views of the city and also good fun to scramble down if it has been snowing!

Bratislava - prices

by trc777

Main course in an average restaurant is from about 100 to 200 SKK. Many restaurants serve lunch menus on working days - you will get usually a soup and a main course (exceptionally also a cup of a mineral water) for about 100 SKK - cheap, fast, basic. Beer 20 - 50 SKK.
For the prices of the public transportation see www.imhd.sk. Taxis usually cost 12-20 SKK / km + 20-50 flat fee. In a weird way, it is cheaper to call taxi by phone than just stop it in the street or get on the stand. Good method is to come to the taxi stand and ask the driver (if he will speak English enough for that...) if you have to call the dispatcher or you will get the lower price also without it. Otherwise call e.g. 16000 for Taxi Trend, they are my preferred company. The rate used at the moment is usually displayed on the taximeter beside the fare - 1 is the "standard" (higher), 2 is the "phone order" (discounted).
Slovakia is still quite cheap country, even if it naturally depends on the ratio of domestic inputs in the particular product or service. So the slovak food in the supermarkets is often really cheap, but imported goods are often more expensive than in western Europe.

Lazy River ?

by Ekaterinburg

Lazy river? I don't think so. The traffic on the Danube is heavy and there was a steady flow of barges all day long. Reading about the river I learned that it is very fast-flowing in parts and that this is obvious from the difference in speed going upriver and downriver. The traffic along the river bank was brusque also, as it is the perfect place for an energetic stroll. There are sights to see all along the banks and if you have time, it's well worth crossing over to 'the other side'. Main points of interest here are the little Sad Janka Krata park and of course, just beyond this park, the Aupark Shopping centre. This is a great shopping mall, if you're into shopping and also a great place for a cheap lunch in the food hall. I nipped down to the riverside at several points during the day ,but in the evening, at sunset, it was incredibly romantic. Unfortunately I had nobody to be romantic with, as I was on my own , but maybe next time ......

Bageteria

by macicka

This is the place where you can eat the best baguettes in the city.
You can choose between white and graham baguette and there is cabbage and mayonnaise as a basic.
They have many kind f baguettes but obviously you can choose what you want to have there.
Every day there is special offer, you can buy a baguette for a lower price. You can find this place in Stara trznica (The Old Marketplace) that is near SNP (across MC Donalds).
