Best Option from Bratislava Hlavna Stanica Train Station to Radisson Blu Carlton Hotel?

by BillNJ

Hi,
I will be visiting Bratislava in November. I will be arriving at the Bratislava Hlavna Stanica train station. Then, I will need to go to the Radisson Blu Carlton Hotel (near the opera house) in the old town. What are my best transportation options? I will have luggage with wheels -- so I could walk if it is easy. Or is there an inexpensive tram that might take me nearby?

If I do take a cab, which cab company is recommended? I do not speak Slovakian -- and I will probably appear to be a good rip-off target for a cab driver who is so inclined. If possible, I would rather avoid a rip-off to start my visit.

Thanks in advance for anyone who might have helpful information to share!

Best regards,

Bill

I just found your question regarding Bratislava - after answering your Vienna question about the trains.

Would I know, you going to stay in Bratislava - I would tell you, just buy a Bratislava ->Sturovo domestic ticket valid on any Eurocity train (usually better than Railjet trains between Vienna and Budapest!), the price is about 7 Euro and add a Sturovo-Budapest special for 6 Euro.

Nothing to reserve - you travel for 13 Euro and stay on the same train. Just remember to ask for two separate tickets, this way is much cheaper.

Thanks for the information about the discounted train fares. I'm not sure it would apply, though, because my itinerary will be a bit circular. I will fly from the USA to Vienna -- then by train to Budapest -- then by train to Bratislava -- then by bus back to Vienna Airport for my flight home.

I will check whether it does apply, though. Thanks again!

Well - just letting you know, the Bratislava - Budapest - Bratislava round-trip is only 16 Euro.
So if you would go from Vienna to Bratislava by bus or buy a round-trip ticket than you are basically set. The 16 Euro price is regular price, valid on any train, Intercity or Eurocity included.

Hi, the best is go by a tram no. 13 from the Hlavna stanica to Jesenskeho or Ludovita Stura, it costs about 0,70 EURO

Travel Tips for Bratislava

History of Bratislava

by grayfo

Bratislava was founded on the crossroad of two important trade routes - the Podunajsk√°, which connected the east and southeast of Europe with the west, and the Jantarov√°, which connected the southern, Adriatic area with the northern, Baltic area. The city is located on the banks of the River Danube.

In the past it has been the home of the Celts, the Romans, and the Slavs.

Since 1919, Bratislava has been the Capital of Slovak republic.

The only thing I would...

by dreamworld

The only thing I would recommend at this time is a visit to the castle, which is on a small hill. Nice views of the city from there. The area around the castle (old town) is also worth a quick tour.
The picture shown here was taken from a peaceful park on the right side of the Danube River just down from one of the main Danube bridges.

This region is characterized...

by queensali

This region is characterized by the diversity of its geographic landscapes, alternating between plains and mountainous regions. The efforts made to preserve the natural environment in a dynamic economic region, plus the cultural and historical monuments, make Kosice a very attractive place to visit. Kosice, the second largest city in the country, also enjoys tourist infrastructures and various options for arriving there (airport, train station, buses). In addition to its cultural riches, the city also has a zoo and a botanical garden. It is in this region that the national park called 'Slovak Paradise' is located. The Herlany Geyser should also be mentioned. Kosice is the center of East Slovakia. This city, the second largest in Slovakia, has a long and rich history. In the town center is the magnificent Gothic cathedral, the Cathedral of St. Elizabeth, as well as the Chapel of St. Michael, the Urban Tower and the Neo-Baroque State Theatre where famous orchestras perform. The Katova Citadel and the

Mlynska Citadel are witnesses to the ancient system of fortifications for protecting the city against its enemies. The visitor can also discover the beauty of several other monuments and buildings of great cultural and historical interest (the old Town Hall, the old University, the Captain's Palace, Liberation Square, etc.) as well as several galleries and museums (the East Slovak Museum). The visitor can relax in the quiet of Municipal Park located in the area around the city center.

The Jasov Monastery, the Betliar Castle and Krasna Horka are located in the surrounding areas of Kosice.

The most splendid site is certainly that of the fortified castle of Spis (Spissky hrad). It is one of the biggest castles in Central Europe and it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. Situated on top of a hill, it dominates a spectacularly beautiful region. It has been restored and contains several exhibitions. A must-see!!!

The Slovak Paradise National Park is a protected natural area which extends over 140 sq. km. It has an infinite variety of natural riches: a network of underground galleries, caves and animal and botanical reserves. Among the natural reserves which make up this group are the White Valley (Biela dolina) which has, notably a huge waterfall, the Lost Valley and its ice cave (one of the most precious elements of the Slovak Paradise), the Dobsinka Ice Cave (120,000 m3 of permanent ice), Kocurova, Sucha bela, the valley decorated with remarkable geo-morphological shapes, the small and large 'Kysel', the large ravine with waterfalls and caves (bear caves).

Decorated Bratislava - a Caryatid

by yooperprof

Bratislava is a richly decorated city. It's fascinating to walk through the city core, paying careful attention to the intricate and often whimsical sculptural and architectural details of its medieval and early modern buildings. I love the places where caryatids - human columns - are used as either decoration or practical structural support.

Grossalkovich Palace

by gosiaPL

I'm always interested to see nice old architecture. This palace is now the seat of the President of Slovakia, but it was built in the 18th century for Count Anton Grassalkovich. It's a smart blend of Baroque and Rococo, must have been a very representative aristocratic residence! At the back there are nice gardens which, apparently, may be accessed by the public. I only saw the gardens from my room at the Tatra hotel but never went there to see the details.
It's in Hodzovo Namestie (Sq.), north of the Old Town.
