Bratislava or Bucharest ?

Jump to last reply

If I'm lucky, I might find myself late in October, with an option to spend 2 days/1night in either Bratislava or Bucharest travelling from Budapest. If you had the choice, which would you visit ? Since I've been to neither I'd be quite willing to go to either one.

I've always wanted to go to Bucharest, and this might be my chance. It is quite a distance away from Budapest and involves a possible night train with a change over from one train to another in the middle of the night, if my understanding of the Elvira Hungarian rail schedule is correct. Not a problem...I'd still be willing to go.

Bratislava is much closer to Budapest and can be accessed by either train or a boat up the Danube, and the time schedules for both train and boat are quite extensive. But besides accommodation being quite pricy, what is there to see and do there ?

I've searched this forum and read many posts from 2008 and 2009 about both cities, but the information is quite limited. Has anyone visited more recently who could give a more current update as to what they did or didn't enjoy there ?
I love enjoy adventure travel and am quite willing to see either city exactly as they are. No frills needed.

Thanks,

M
