Please look at the students welcome guide for the map of stops of public transport around. From Bratislava Main Train Station (Hlavna stanica)or the Main Bratislava bus station (Mlynske Nivy) you will need to buy one ticket (time ticket valid for 15 minutes) for 70 cents at the tobacconist's or from automatic ticket machines which are around of most stops (not by the driver).  In case you need to get to Vazovova from Bratislava airport you will need a time-ticket for 30 minutes (90 cents) or 60 minutes (1,2€). It is possible to change buses,  trams or trolleybuses with one ticket within the time interval.

6. Student ID Card?

You will get ID cards at the beginning of the first session.

7. Do I need Slovak vignette?

Generally speaking: to use Slovak motorways you will need vignette (motorway sticker). The exception are motorways in cities Bratislava (and Banská Bystrica). However, because the Austrian motorway D6 is entering Slovakia not in Bratislava you will need for 7 kilometers of Slovak D2 from the border crossing in Kittsee to Bratislava to buy a vignette or to use local roads to cross border in Berg (see the map and instruction below).
The vignette costs 10€ and is valid for 10 days. There are also monthly - 14 € and a yearly - 50 € vignettes. From 1 January 2016 the vignette is electronic only. It means that you will not get the sticker, just the invoice (bill). It is possible to buy a vignette in particular petrol stations, in self-serve devices located at border crossings, but also on the internet:  (available also in English and German). Drivers without a valid vignette may be fined with €150 (it never happened to any student until now).

      Arrival by car

      • Bratislava is about 70-80 kms away from Vienna. The fastest way is to take the motorway A4, A6 (Austrian toll roads) crossing Slovakia's border on motorway in Kittsee. Slovak motorway from Kittsee to Petržalka is also toll road , so you will need also Slovak vignette (see above). Or you may take a local road No. 9 (B9).

      • In cases of arriving to Bratislava from Kittsee or Berg  and also in case of arriving from the west (from Czech republic by motorway D2) you will enter the center of Bratislava through the New bridge (on the left side is the castle on the right side the cathedral). The moment you get on the bridge you have a straight way of 3 kilometers to Vazovova - just go straight and after 3 kilometers you will need anyway to turn right because the straight way is an oneway road. In details: cross the bridge (1 km), continue on Staromestská (0.6 km), slight left to stay on Staromestská and to go under the crossing on Námestie 1. mája (0.8 km), continue on Námestie slobody (with the fountain on the left site, 0.5 km), turn right to Mýtna (behind the tall building of the National bank) 40 m and stay on Vazovova.

Parking houses are more far away and are more expensive (see the map on )
