Bratislava, the charming and picturesque capital of Slovakia, is lately growing in popularity among travelers. Day trippers, weekend tourists, long-stay visitors – they all come to explore its unique feel, glorious Old Town, café culture, and more.
One of its major gateways is Vienna Airport (Schwechat), as it is only about 60 kilometers (38 miles) away. You are landing at Schwechat and unsure how to get to the Slovakian capital?
If you are not enjoying the lack of space for coaches, you can take a train. It will still be cost-effective for you (a single adult ticket at 20€ approximately), but you will have to make connections. You will have to change trains in Vienna, and your trip will be from 90 to 120 minutes.
Advantages are low cost, comfort, and reliability. The disadvantages are the schedules, not a door-to-door service, making connections.
A bus is a great solution if you want to travel to Bratislava economically. Your single ride ticket will be about 8€, and departures from Vienna Airport are hourly. Your trip will be about 60 minutes long, and you can bring one suitcase and one carry-on with you.
Pros are Affordable prices and safety. Cons are no comfort (lack of legroom and space), no flexibility and freedom (dependency on timetables), limited luggage allowance.
