Central train station called "Hlavná stanica", is located within a few minutes from city center by public transport. The surrounding of the station image and visual is awful, however, it should be modernized within few years. Maybe you will not believe, this is a central station in a capital city, as well as it is a central public transport. You can get everywhere from here even during the night, as it is a place full of homeless people.

Get there by public transport

Bus number 61 will take you directly to the airport in less than half an hour and you do not need to pay any special price for a ticket. This bus has also a nightline N61, so you will not get stuck on the train station even between 23 and 4 o'clock.

Trolleybus number 210 connects the train station with the central bus station within 15 minutes maximum. For the list of transports departing from train station see the schedule (EN).

If you want to go to the city center, the best way is to take a bus number X13. Take off at the bus stop called: "Namestie SNP" and you are one step from the very center of Bratislava - Main square ("Hlavne namestie"). There used to be trams connecting city center and the main train station but nowadays, it is closed so bus X13 is the only connection.

Get there by taxi

There are several taxi companies operating in front of the train station, you can just hop on.

Get there by car

There is a paid nonstop parking spot just a few steps from the central train station entrance. It costs something around 1-2€ per hour. Follow this website for the current situation (Hlavná stanica).

Is the Old Town or the city center of Bratislava only a walking distance from the Central Train Station? We are coming in from Vienna and intend to stay only for a few hours and we don`t want to bother understanding how the city`s public transportation works.

We'll be visiting Bratislava in March 2017 by way of Vienna which is where we will fly into (we are from Cleveland, Ohio in the states). We'd like to find a hotel near the Majestic Sky Club as our son we'll be competing at EYYC. We'd also like to know if this music club is in the downtown area of Bratislava. My husband and I would like to tour this area while our son is with his friends. Thank you in advance!

Hi! I am going to Budapest from Prague and stopping over Bratislava just for a few hours. I will have a big piece of luggage. The size is 70cm H x 50cm W. Can this size luggage be accommodated in lockers there or should we leave it with the staffed left luggage office? If in the staffed luggage office,, would you know how much it will cost and how late they are open? Thank you.
