When travelling to Bratislava many people arrive at Bratislava Airport, which is around 9 km from the city centre. Alternatively, you can catch the train to Hlavna Stanica station, 5 minutes to the north of the Old Town. The bus station in Ruzinov is 15 minutes away by foot as well, so everything is pretty central.
If you are staying in the city centre, walking is the best way to get around. Be sure to pick up a tourist map from your hotel. If you want to travel further afield, taxis are easy to book and very cheap, and the excellent bus and tram network runs from around 4:00 a.m. until 11:30 p.m. There's also a bike and scooter hire service, which could be even more convenient. The Old Town isn't known for its parking spaces, so Bratislava is probably not the best place to hire a car.
The capital of Slovakia is a youthful, exciting place to be. The majestic river Danube snakes through the city centre, while the Old Town is filled with churches, markets and museums and the imposing bulk of the city's medieval castle. Although it's an ancient city, Bratislava also has plenty of modern architecture to enjoy, along with acres of green space and promenades along the river. Then there's the beer - some of the best you'll taste anywhere in Europe.
