Discussion on Bratislava

tommy :

has anybody been, what did you think, is it worth a visit?

sandi :
"Yes, it's a very nice city, especially the old part of it!"
Pheasant Plucker :
"I was there some years ago - nice city, with a good atmosphere. It has an old town area, and a castle looking down on the Danube. Worth a visit."
blue angel :

I'm planning to go from Prague to Vienna with sky europe. However, on the requested days, sky europe fly to Bratislava instead of Vienna. Is it okay? or it's better to take train?? If i have a Vienna card, can it be used for travelling between Bratislava and Vienna??

t_maia2000 :
"It is ok that they fly to Bratislava since train trips from Bratislava to Vienna are cheap. Many people who go from Prague to Vienna by train choose to go via Bratislava to save money. So check out going by train to Bratislava or Vienna, with transfer to and from the airports taking the train might be faster. Train fare from Prague to Vienna by train should be about 45 EUR direct, travel time around 4-5 hrs. Travel time from Bratislava city centre to Vienna is roughly 1-2 hrs, don't know how much it is going to cost you to get from Bratislava Airport to Vienna."
Lisa B :
"The other answer is very good. I just want to tell you not to worry about it because you didn't get another answer. It's correct. One thing I might add it that it is possible to go from Bratislava to Vienna by Danube ship. If you like that as an alternative, check it out. You asked about "Vienna card" -- I don't know much about it, but Bratislava is in another country, so I don't think it would work."

Working worldwide with my laptop, I am about to move to Bratislava in 10 days. It may take a while until I find myself a (nice!) apartment and have ADSL services installed in it. So, while I still need to work, any recommendations on good cafes/places with wi-fi internet hotspot that I can work from using my laptop? Also, I have been told that there are good chances of having my laptop robbed once gyspies notice it. Is that so? Any advice or idea what to do in order to avoid this (or other gypsies "issues")?

luosechi :
"well, do watch out for Gypsies... They're as far as Germany now but don't worry about the local people. Hey!! That's the same question I have of getting Wi Fi in the Czech Republic."
Nikkers :
"Here's a list of wi-fi spots --bratislava-3452067.htm No one will steal your laptop if you keep an eye on it."
Katrina G :
"You'll find tons of cafes with Wi-Fi hotspot internet connection in downtown Bratislava. There's a list of some of them on this website. Unfortunately, it's in Slovak language but you can at least see their addresses And when it comes to gypsies stealing your laptop, just keep an eye on all your stuff and you'll be fine. Good luck"

This article provides a new approach to measure airport quality from the airlines’ point of view. This is an entirely new approach because approaches thus far have been from the customers’ point of view. This new approach has been tested at Bratislava Airport in Slovakia, but Full research results will be published at a later time.
