    The tram system in Bratislava is an easy way to get around the city or to and from the main train station. You can buy a 1, 2, 3, or 7 day pass. If you are carrying bags, you may have to pay a half-fare for each bag. Once you board the tram, validate the ticket in the machine.

    the old town is little, and you can move here just walking...for longer trips, the public transportation is quite good...there are many buses or trams to go almost everywhere, at any hour of the day (and many during the night too ), and they're quite cheap.

    MHD or Public transport

    Transportation is easy, everywhere are buses and trams, trolleybuses. The basic ticket is valid for ten minutes and costs 16 Sk, (1 Euro is around 42-45 Sk), there are also other kinds of tickets which you can buy in automats almost at every corner. If you will stay in center there is always around ten minutes to go anywhere ;) so better for you is walking :)

    Public transport in Bratislava

    Public transport

    The public transport in Bratislava is quite good organized. Most of the lines have frequency cca each 10-15 min. But expect a lot of people in vehicles especially in peak (in the morning about 7:30 and afternoon about 16:00).
    The tickets are available by tobacconist or in automatic machines. The 10 min ticket costs SKK 14,- and 30 min SKK 16,-. I recommend to the tourists to buy touristic tickets for 24 hours (available in the main train station and near Presidential Palace).

    Bratislava is quite a small capital city so once you're in the centre most things are within walking distance.
    If you arrive at the main station take the tram #1into the town. I like to get off at Vysoka Ulice which is on a shopping street within walking distance of the old town area. The ticket costs 14 crowns and is valid 10 minutes.
    If you arrive at Petrzalka station or your train returns from there, then you need to take the bus into town ( I think its # 84 or 90). Buses leave and arrive at the station which is located near the Danube River at the end of the SNP Bridge ("Most" in Slovakian).
    A word of warning: DON'T FORGET TO STAMP YOUR TICKET!!! If you forget the official will retain your passport till you pay the fine.

    take a tram, bus or 'trolley bus' (Bratislava's specialty) - make sure you have a ticket ready for every single ride. For a visitor staying in the city for more than 1 day I suggest to buy the 72 hour ticket costing not a lot. Anyway, I think you won't need to get a ticket because Bratislava is small and everything interesting is within a walking distance.

    A cheap and easy way to get around BRATISLAVA: The bus of course ! A 30 minutes ticket costs 14 Skk. (€ 0.33 or $0.29).

    Un moyen simple et bon marché pour se ballader à BRATISLAVA : Le bus bien sûr! Un ticket valable une demi-heure vous coûtera 14 Skk. (0,33 € ou 0, 29 $).

    mhd! public transport. buses, trams. you have to buy a ticket before you get on any of them. the tickets are for a period of time, ten or thirty minutes, or even an hour. when you get on, they are valid only if you put them into the small buzzing machine that marks the time. if you need to change, the ticket is still valid if you are within the time limit. so don't go wasting money by throwing away valid tickets anytime you get off, as i did, amusing my dear cousin

    tram tickets

    Just like in Praha make sure you get a half ticket for your backpack / oversized luggage as well ... otherwise you can get dinged with a fine. Tram tickets are available at most kiosks!

    The castle train

    Well, you can use this toy castle train to get up the hill to the castle and back. It is practical if you are really not into much walking.

    To most places you can get just by walking as the city is rather small, but if you do need to go somewhere further try the local tram, it is cheap and easy to use.

    This is example of the ticket used for Public transport, there are more tickets like this and it depends on you which to buy. But for you as tourists will be enough to buy 10 minutes' ticket. :)
