Just arrived in Bratislava? Welcome! Here is a short guide to help you find your way around the region.

Public transport

The cheapest and simplest way to get into and around the Bratislava city is by public transport: services in Bratislava are regular and punctual. You can use buses, trolley-busses and trams. Bratislava has no metro. It is important to remember that you must have a ticket before boarding any form of transport (the drivers do not sell tickets). The tickets can be purchased from yellow coin-operated ticket machines located at the main bus and tram stops, or from newspaper kiosks around the city.

If you're staying outside Bratislava or want to visit some of the local attractions, the region's towns are well-served by public transport. Regular buses run to all the nearby centres, departing from Bratislava Bus Station on Mlynské Nivy. Tickets for these buses can bought from the driver.

Alternatively, train services also connect Bratislava to Svätý Jur, Pezinok, Senec and Malacky. Trains to these destinations leave from Bratislava's main railway station (hlavná stanica).

Car rental

Some regional accommodation and attractions – for instance, the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum or Červený Kameň Castle – are more easily accessible by car than public transport. All the leading international car rental firms have offices at Bratislava International Airport. Alternatively,hotels and most pensions will be able to arrange a hire car from a local rental company.
