Bratislava, Slovakia

10 Apr 2012 (Tue)

1 of 8, 16 days Central Europe trip


Government Office of the Slovak Republic
There are arguments saying that Vienna and Bratislava are the world's two closest capital cities, separated 60km apart, not counting Vatican City and Rome.

And yes, we did travel from Vienna to Bratislava. It was a half day trip, so we needed to rush a bit to catch our train back to Vienna. Traveling in such manner can sometimes be exciting, as you know you have limited time to visit a country, before the golden carriage turns back to pumpkin.

That ended our intense half day trip in Bratislava, or rather in the country - Slovakia. We managed to catch the train in the evening, back to Vienna.
