EASY-ECO Bratislava Training

Getting to the Bratislava Training

Important note relating to EU-Grants: The amount of the grant available for travel expenses depends on your distance from the venue – details of the maximum amounts you can claim are attached and you are asked to make the most economical travel arrangements possible. If you expend more than the maximum allowable amounts, it will not be possible to reimburse you for the overspend. Note that travel can only be reimbursed upon provision of receipts for your travel tickets; it is not possible to reimburse money for tickets presented without receipts. For this reason, make sure that you ask for a receipt at the time of purchase and that you bring this with you to the training where you will be reimbursed. It will not be sufficient just to submit a flight ticket; the receipt from the travel agency or flight operator is required.

By Air
As well as flying direct to Bratislava airport, the city is located close to three international airports in Vienna, Budapest and Prague, maximising the possibilities of finding convenient transport for the training. There are many budget airlines serving these different destinations, notably SkyEurope and Easyjet, both of which fly direct to Bratislava. It is advisable to book these flights as soon as you can, since prices are liable to increase considerably as the date of travel draws closer. If the nearest you can get by direct flight is Budapest, Vienna or Prague, then trains and coaches make a comfortable and relatively cheap way of extending your journey to Bratislava (see below).

By Train
Bratislava main station has good connections to all of Slovakia’s neighbouring countries as well as longer distance direct trains to Berlin. Trains run direct from the airport in Vienna to Bratislava’s main station, which is in the centre, and also to the Bratislava Petržalka station, which is rather further away.

By Bus
Buses from Prague and Budapest can be cheaper than the train depending on the time and date of travel. Bus connections offer a relatively easy means of transport from Vienna airport to Bratislava, providing pick-up direct from the airport.

By Car
We would not advise that you drive to Bratislava for a number of reasons including a considerable lack of parking space. Should you be determined to arrive by car, please contact James Grellier (rec@changenet.sk) for details.

Getting to the Training Venue

By the standards of most modern capitals Bratislava is relatively small which makes getting lost quite difficult. The city is served by an ageing but very efficient public transport system of buses, trolleybuses and trams. Tickets are bought before boarding any means of transport, either from a kiosk or from an automat, and are stamped when boarding the bus. Each ticket allows passengers to ride for a certain time (10, 30 or 60 minutes – see below) and during this time you may change as many times as you want, as well as between different modes of transport.

The training is being held at the Institute for Public Administration in Dúbravka, which is located a short distance outside the historical centre of Bratislava, near to the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains.

The Institute for Public Administration (Inštitút pre verejnú správu in Slovak) is close to both bus and tram stops. The 34 bus runs from the centre of town direct to the venue, as do trams number 1, 5 and 12. Normal buses and trams run until around midnight on weekdays, and these are then replaced by night bus service number 504 which runs until morning.

From Bratislava Airport
Take the number 61 bus from its terminal stop at the airport towards the town and change after 24 minutes at Racianske mýto for bus number 34, towards Dúbravka pri kríži. After a further 20 minutes, get off at the stop called Damborského. Crossing over the road and tramlines and turning left, you will quickly find yourself at the training venue. See the map at the end of this document for more details.

From Bratislava Main Station (Hlavná stanica)
From the main station walk to the nearby bus stop at SAV as shown in the map.

Here take bus number 34, towards Dúbravka pri kríži. After a further 19 minutes, get off at the stop called Damborského. Crossing over the road and tramlines and turning left, you will quickly find yourself at the training venue. See the map at the end of this document for more details.

From the Bratislava Bus Station (AS Mlynské nivy)
Cross the small road in front of the bus station as shown in the map.

From the bus stop indicated, take a number 21 or 25 bus towards Volkswagen and after 4 minutes (the second stop, called Racianske mýto) change for bus number 34, towards Dúbravka pri kríži. After a further 20 minutes, get off at the stop called Damborského. Crossing over the road and tramlines and turning left, you will quickly find yourself at the training venue. See the map at the end of this document for more details.

Getting to the Historical Centre

Getting into the centre of Bratislava during your stay is not at all difficult. Tram numbers 1, 5 and 12 go to and from the old town every 5 minutes or so and run until around 23:10. After this time you will have to rely on the night bus service number 504, which leaves from the main station.
