How to get to Bratislava

Bratislava, the country capital, is served by its own Bratislava international airport (BTS) with regular flights to 22 destinations mainly in Europe. Vienna (VIE) or Budapest Ferihegy (BUD) international airports could be used alternatively. If you want to rent a car, you can do that for a reasonable price at the airport.

At the Bratislava airport, you can take public transportation  or a taxi to get to city center, where conference venue is located. You can find a comprehensive map of the Bratislava public transportation here (PDF).

TAXI in Bratislava - it might be helpful to use taxi for some participants. There are lot of possibilities, but we recommend:

Both companies offer quite reasonable prices (5€/ride in Bratislava, 8€ from the airport to the city)

Some drivers don't accept credit cards!

 

From Vienna

From Vienna, there are several possibilities to use low-cost shuttle busses operating on the daily basis between Vienna Schwechat Airport and Bratislava (city center - "Most SNP" station).

The providers include: SlovakLines, RegioJet, FlixBus, Blaguss.

You can also take the train from Vienna Hauptbahnhof (trains depart from the city of Vienna not from the airport) to Bratislava main railway station "Hlavná stanica" (approx. 1-hour journey).

From Budapest

From Budapest, the best option is to take the international InterCity/EuroCity train from Keleti station to Bratislava main railway station (approx. 2-hour journey, runs every day).

Once you get to Bratislava, you can use the map below to navigate to the conference venue.
