Travel to Slovakia
M. R. Štefánik International Airport is 8 km from downtown Bratislava. A taxi into town costs from €6 to €13. By bus, take number 61 to the main railway station, not forgetting to buy a Sk18 ticket from the yellow dispenser and mark it in the red punch machine.
Many visitors to Slovakia fly into Vienna’s Schwechat International Airport (60 kilometres away from Bratislava), which is larger than Bratislava’s M. R. Štefánik Airport. Taxis from Vienna (if Slovak) start at €66, but could be three times as expensive if they’re Austrian. Buses are a better way of getting to Bratislava from Vienna Airport. They run several times a day, cost about €14, and the journey lasts between 60 and 90 minutes.
Košice International Airport is 6 km from downtown Košice. A taxi into town costs approximately as for Bratislava. By bus, take number 23 to the city centre (the same one goes on to the main railway station and the bus station; do not forget to buy a €6 ticket).
