Bratislava’s main railway station is just over half a mile (1km) north of the city centre. There’s an extensive network of trams, trolleybuses and buses to call on if you have too far to walk.
Bratislava Hlavna Stanica,
Predstaničné Námestie 1,
811 01 Bratislava
Open 24 hours.
From the station, the city centre is a gentle 15 minute walk downhill. The heart of Bratislava is compact and mainly pedestrianised, making it ideal for exploring on foot.
Buses 32, 41, 61, 74 and 93 and trolleybuses 210 and 201 all stop in front of the station.
You’ll find a taxi rank just outside the station.
Trams 2, 3, 8 and 13 serve the station, with tram 13 being the most useful for the city centre. To get to the tram stop, walk through the underpass in front of the station entrance.
Taxis wait in front of the station. To avoid being overcharged, choose a cab that displays a price list and the company name on the door.
Bratislava Station once boasted a bizarre wine transport system. The ‘vinovod’ sent wine through tubing from trains at the station into the Paludaj family’s wine cellars in the heart of the city.
