Budapest is the capital city of Hungary, the bordering southern neighbor of Slovakia. Even htough it is not as close as Vienna, Budapest is still approachable within 3 hours from Bratislava either by bus, train, or a boat.
Once choosing Budapest as your final destination to visit from Bratislava, there are several options how to travel there, but which one is the best? Bus, train or boat?
In the summer we definitely suggest you a boat trip! It is a beautiful trip including a chance to spend a day in Hungary’s capital. Boat transport starts to operate in April till October.
There is not a significant difference between the prices of bus and train tickets. If you buy the tickets in advance you have no problems with them being sold out There is a big advantage with the bus transport - you can buy tickets online, which is not possible with trains.
Buy bus ticket online: here.
There is neither size nor quantity limit of luggage you want to transport. So take all the luggage you want with a train. But keep in mind that you need pay for carrying a bicycle.
Most of the bus companies provide free wifi, magazines and hot drinks or water on aboard in order to make your journey more comfortable.
