The main bus station is located in the wider city center. It has been opened in the 1983 and should soon be reconstructed. Unlike in the most of cities, the bus station is not located directly nearby the main train station. Inside, there are a restaurants and snack bars, lugguage storage room, post office, currency exchange office and a machine for selling the tickets for public transport.

During the night, the bus station is not considered to be the most nearest place as few homeless people could hang around here. The official bus station name is Mlynské nivy, Autobusova stanica or AS Mlynské Nivy. Sometimes it is even shortened to ASMN.

Bus station connects Bratislava not only with other parts of Slovakia, but even with the rest of Europe. See the full list of cities, where you can get from here, including metropolis like Wien, Prague, Berlin, Paris or even London.

Taxis wait in front of the station but bear in mind that taking a taxi by not calling an operator, but directly hopping in is slightly more expensive.

    Hello I forget my bag in Bratislava main bus station. It was little red. How can I get my bag back?

      Hi Mahmut AĞDERE,
      to be honest, there is only a little chance of that happening. If you are still in Bratislava, try asking at the help desk.

    Добрый день! Вас беспокоят из Москвы.
    Мы не смогли в Москве купить билеты на автобус Братислава - Генуя и нам помогли купить билеты в Генуе наши друзья.
    У нас вопрос.
    При посадке нужны оригиналы?
    Или достаточно распечатки скана?
    И еще - в чеке не указаны места - как происходит посадка в автобус?
    С уважением, Светлана
