Proximity to ALL OF EUROPE! I wish I could say we traveled as much as I would have liked but it is really close to everything and RyanAir hub is at Bratislava airport so you could fly, drive, or train all over Europe. Vienna and Budapest are so close that we spent a lot of time in those cities. - Jun 2017

Bratislava is incredibly centrally located in Europe - just 1 hour from Vienna, 2 hours from Budapest, 4 hours from Prague, and 6 hours from Venice. We LOVE the travel opportunities, and being in Slovakia is also fun. We are really enjoying all the bike trails nearby. Life in Bratislava is also really easy to navigate, as the city is compact, so we find we can walk many places we want to go, including work, and only get in our car every few weeks. - Jun 2015

The weather is not too bad, most people are nice, and it is a great base for exploring the rest of europe and scandinavia. - Dec 2009

Bratislava is really a fantastic place. There is no shortage of anything, and you can get just about any place from there very reasonably. For example, if you drive Italy is only 4 hours – Vienna is 45 min by train or driving. - Apr 2010
