General Information about the journey from Bratislava to Vienna

The capital cities of Slovakia and Austria are only an hour away by bus or train, making a day trip to Vienna easy to arrange if you are staying in Bratislava.

In terms of journey time, there isn't much to choose between trains and buses as both are cheap and frequent. However, the U2 Stadium Bus Terminal is a couple of kilometres away from the centre, so rail travel may suit sightseers slightly better.
