Prices

by gscouller

Im thinking of going to Bratislava from the 2nd - 9th sept. Was wondering what the prices for food, beer etc are like over there?
Thanks

Re: Prices

by TheWanderingCamel

I'm sure someone else will give you more detailed answers, but we found Bratislava to be incredibly cheap when we visited a couple of years back. Everything was a fraction of the price we were paying in England and Vienna at the same time. I hope it's still the same.

Re: Prices

by katamorgana

Well, it is not the same now, but still cheaper than UK or Wiena :-)
A glass of bear is about 1.6 EUR, an average meal in the restaurant is about 12 EUR, a ball of ice cream 0.5 EUR

Re: Prices

by TheWanderingCamel

That holds up well with the 1.5 for a beer I was remembering, though the meal's a bit more expensive. I know we changed just 20 euro each for a day in the city and hadn't spent it all after a couple of drinks, lunch, visiting the Primate's Palace and the castle, catching a tram, leaving donations in churches we visited and buying some dried fruit and nuts to snack on as we took the train back to Vienna - oh, and I forgot the delicous apple icecream

Public transport is very cheap, but be sure to buy tickets and get them validated when you ride - there are very steep fines if you're caught without one.

Hi there,

The price for beer in downtown can range from 1-4 Euros. It depends on where you go. There are few places with beer reasonably prices - up to 1.70. For example:
Slang Pub
17's bar
Slovak Pub
Eden Pub
Kristian Beer Pub

Pizza costs around 5 Euros. Spirits around 1.50 - 5 Euros.

Re: Prices

by pstadex

The coctails 6 euro, beer 6 all other 4,water 1,70-2,5, food (plates from 8-15 euro) In general not cheap but not expensive. Outside Bratislava to the country is a real bargain 1/2 prices to all even more in some food like Pizza. There are places that charge a lot and other less.check out the price cataloge before you sit

Travel Tips for Bratislava

HOSPITALS-AMERICANS-IF YOU NEED TO GO TO HOSPITAL

by tacofrogcheese

Ifo you are in need of a hospital and are American, don't call the embassy. They will only scare you and tell you you should get evacuated. This costs thousands of dollars. They will try to tell you that you should see an American doctor here and it is gonna cost alot. Instead I go to a local hospital for my torn ligament and got treatment and X-Rays for 850SK. This is maybe like 20-25USD. The wait time was like 45 minutes. This is still better than any hospital I've experienced in America. For a young person with no insurance this is the only option. They took care of me. Whats funny is that both of the doctors I saw were trained in North America. One in Canada and one in U.S.A. We all know the American government dosen't like people to travel and makes all sorts of attempts to scare this from doing so. Hospital is near Tescos, Hotel Kyjev and the #1 Tram stop. It is a parrallel street to Tescos right behind McDonalds. This hospital is a Catholic missionary hospital. It is no profit. There are a couple of English nurses/workers there that can translate for you. The name and address are as follows:
FNsP Milosrdni bratia, s.r.o.
Nam S.N.P. 10
814 65 Bratislava

P.S.-Don't Worry-They will not try to convert anyone to be Catholic.

Inside the Primate's Palace.

by Ekaterinburg

The inside of the Primate's Palace is a little cornucopia of artistic delights. The most famous of these are the tapestries which tell the storyof Hero and Leander which were found rolled up and hidden during the reconstruction works of 1903. The tapestries are in perfect condition with vivid colouring and dramatic narrative power. They are displayed in The Hall of Mirrors, a lush, gold and damask- lined set of interconnecting rooms. Out in the corridoor there are plenty of interesting paintings also, among them a portrait of Maria Teresa to celebrate her coronation in Bratislava. The absolute piece de resistance though, is the intricately frescoed, Chapel of St Ladislav, which you look down into from a gallery overhead.

The Palace is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 10.00 am - 5.00 pm.
Admission is SKK 40 for adults and free for students. The ticket is a souvenir postcard of the Palace.

Facts about Slovakia

by HORSCHECK

When you visit Bratislavia it is good to know some basic facts about Slovakia and its history. Slovakia was a part of Czechoslovakia from 1918 until 1992, which came under the influence of the Soviet Union from 1945.
Slovakia and the Czech Republic became independent during the so called Velvet Divorce. Slovakia joined the NATO on the 29th March 2004 and the European Union on the 1st May 2004. The population of Slovakia is about 5.4 million.

Mozart's early performance place

by gosiaPL

Another one to spot as you walk along Venturska St. It's famous for Mozart's early performance when he was only 6 year old! - a plaque on ther front wall leaves no doubt about that. The palace is named after Leopold Palffy, an Austrian marshal, for whom it was built in 1747. Now it houses the Austrian Institute and Embassy.

Historical place for everyone

by Skipka

The Square of SNP (Slovak uprising during WW II) is for eveyrone living in this city the special one. Not large not that beautiful, nothing up to standard of old socialistic architecture so what then? It is the point where people meet together when there is something in the air, The Velvet revolution or Ice hockey championship or unsatisfying conditions in the state itself. So when you will cross this square and stand a bit somewhere maybe you will catch all those noises and sounds of crying people ... desperate or happy ...
