Hi! I’ve been living in Bratislava, Slovakia for the past four months and haven’t been out of the city much at all. I’m about to go back home to the U.S. in a couple weeks and want to spend my last days seeing as much as possible. I’m not really sure the best way to go about it…I want to see EVERYTHING!! But I just don’t have enough time. Any suggestions or ideal routes to see a lot relatively easily starting from Bratislava? I’m also on a budget, so sticking to trains/buses are probably my best bet.

I’d love to see Venice, Greek Islands…etc. Really I just don’t even know what to see or where to start! Any advice will be so helpful! I will be traveling alone, I’m a 23 year old female and only know English….so any other tips would be appreciated!

Thank you!

If you want to visit Greece and Venice, then go for it, but that’s about all you can accomplish in 2 weeks. We did 2 weeks in Greece and Turkey starting in Bratislava, but it was pretty rushed. We only really “saw” Greece because we took an island cruise. I would have preferred having enough time to actually do it on our own.

Check transportation options from both Bratislava and Vienna.

Thank you for the info! I’ll look into that…I have heard traveling by train is easiest and very scenic which would be nice. I realize it will take longer to get there, but do you think that is worth it?

Again, thank you so much!

Not if you’re going to Greece. I’d look for a flight as the train ride is 32 hours — much of which won’t be very scenic. If you break it up with visits to cities along the way you won’t have enough time to visit Greece let alone make it to Venice.

Train’s a great option if you’re traveling closer to Bratislava.
