- Road Trip
When I traveling to Trencin I used two means of transportation - bus and train, as I wanted to visit also Trnava on the way. Anyway, it is possible to come use train line Bratislava - Trencin also. I made it when I was going back to Slovak capital.
Trains from Trencin back to Bratislava was going about every hour, so it is better to check schedules before, if you are punctual about time. Railway line is quite nearby old town, you need only to cross a park.
As I remember the ticket Trencin - Bratislava cost around 6,30 euros during my visit time.
If you are coming from Bratislava, the train takes about 1 hour 40 minutes. Trencin is a major transport hub for this part of the country, so you should be well connected for traveling onwards.
Trencin has an exit from the main road between Bratislava and Zilina (d1).
The bus station is located directly across from the train station (how convenient!). The bus is a far better option for places farther off, but for major cities it is probably easier to just take the train.
