Lexa and I were planning a trip to Budapest to end the semester, so when I got the chance to take a day trip to Bratislava, I decided to take it. After a long overnight bus and a plane later, I arrived in Budapest and hopped on a 2.5 hour train to Bratislava. This is a really great option if you're already planning a trip to Budapest because the two cities are totally different and a round trip train ticket costs less than $40.
Arriving in Bratislava, it didn't take long to catch a fairy tale feel, which made me excited to explore more the next day (another perk: it's so cheap!!). Here's a few things I recommend.
