Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
The largest city in Slovakia, Bratislava has a population of almost 415,000 people. As it’s a capital city, it’s also the cultural, economic and administrative centre of the country and comprises a mixture of picturesque medieval streets together with bland concrete buildings from the Communist era.
Since communism fell, this city and its surrounding area have become the most prosperous region in Central and Eastern Europe, making it a great place to live, work and play.
As the largest airport in the Slovak Republic, Bratislava Airport plays host to many flights that bring passengers in from all over Europe. While Bratislava Airport is serviced by public transport, if you want to make your way to your accommodation in style, you may prefer to be met at arrivals by one of our comfortable minibuses, coaches or limousines for hire in Bratislava.
Choosing to use private airport shuttle buses from RentABus in Bratislava means you’ll get to your final destination quickly and without any fuss.
The first thing that strikes visitors about Bratislava is how its medieval streets, historic churches and hill-top castle combine with its buildings from the communist era.
In the modern part of this city, alongside the river Danube, you’ll find Petrzalka housing estate, the largest concrete block-housing complex in Central Europe. This grey estate seems to stretch on for miles and is a reminder of this time period in Slovakia.
No visit to Bratislava would be complete without exploring its narrow winding streets and picturesque pastel coloured buildings that make up its famous medieval centre. The tiny old town or starý mesto is centred around Hlavné namestie which literally translates to main square.
There are pretty outdoor cafes, Roland’s Fountain, and a town hall dating back to 1421, which now houses the city museum where you can climb its steep stairs up to a clock tower, or descend into the town’s historical dungeons.
There are always plenty of street performers here, and it regularly plays host to festival performances throughout the year.
The other main square is Hviezdoslavovo namieste, which was named after a famous Slovak poet. Lined with embassies, restaurants and bars, it’s home to the Slovak National Theatre which puts on performances of ballet, opera and theatre.
The world famous Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra is also close by, so if classical music is your thing, be sure to book tickets for a performance in the historic Reduta building.
Next to the River Danube is the medieval hilltop Bratislava castle, which was reconstructed in the 1950s following a fire in 1811. Behind this castle, the Slavin monument overlooks the city paying homage to all Soviet casualties from the battle to liberate Bratislava in World War II.
Situated below Bratislava Castle is St. Martin’s Cathedral, one of the oldest churches in Bratislava. This gothic cathedral dates back to the 14th century and has seen the crowning of ten kings and one queen.
To experience modern Bratislava, visit SNP Bridge, or Most SNP, which spans the Danube River and features a flying saucer shaped restaurant called, unsurprisingly, UFO. There’s also an observation deck on the roof giving you fantastic views of the old town and Petrzalka housing estate.
Outside of the city, there’s a vast rural area to explore filled with farms, vineyards and agricultural land. If you want to get a taste of rustic Slovakia, RentABus.com offer quality minibuses and coaches for hire in Bratislava, which will enable you to see the countryside in comfort.
