On my last day in Vienna (see previous two posts about that), my fellow Fellow Lisa and I took the one-hour train ride to Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. Slovakia, as in Czech-o-, on its own since 1993, smack north of Hungary and separating Austria from Ukraine. Amazing to be able to get there so quickly, and for 16 euros (just over $17) round-trip. The old city is pedestrianized and great to wander around.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take a day away from Vienna, but I’m glad I did.
