I'm going to be in Nitra in August for a week's summer school.

My plan is to fly into and out of Vienna from Manchester, take a bus from Vienna airport to Bratislava, then another bus to Nitra the day before the course starts. That way I'll get plenty of time to explore Nitra. There is also a day excursion during the course to Bratislava.

The week finishes on Sunday 7th August and I'd like then to take another couple of days and see another town/area. I've been using www.cp.sk to look at bus and train times.

My choices so far are between Banská Bystrica, Banská Štiavnica and Trnava. Trnava has the advantage of being close to Nitra and Bratislava, but I like the idea of heading up into the more mountainous areas. Any thoughts? There's not a lot of places to stay reviewed on Tripadvisor. I won't be heading too far East because I want to have a reasonable journey back to Bratislava and then Vienna for my flight home in the evening.

Another option might be Brno. This has the advantage of a fast direct link back to Vienna and is still within a reasonable bus journey from Nitra.

Any advice gratefully received.

Michael
