Visiting Bratislava: While researching other places I could visit close to Vienna, Bratislava – the Slovakian capital city was a popular option.
It takes just one hour to connect both capital cities.
So, I purchased a train ticket from Wien Hbf to Bratislava hl.st.
I paid €18 for the return trip – the ticket from Vienna is valid for 3 days, which means you can return to Vienna (within 3 days) using the same ticket.
The ticket also allows free access to public transportation in Bratislava on your first day.
Did Bratislava impress me?
Moreso, because I had little or no expectations.
However, I did feel like a fish out of water being coloured. I recall an instance when I walked into a restaurant and two ladies kept staring at me like they saw a ghost.
Now, should you visit Bratislava?
Yes. I loved exploring the charming historic old town particularly, and the gorgeous Bratislava Castle.
It was impressive and easy to explore the city.
