    Traffic and parking

    There are more and more cars in Bratislava; the increasing traffic makes it difficult to drive in the city centre during peak hours, but not impossible. Therefore, as in any metropolis, it is better to avoid driving with commuters in the morning and afternoon during weekdays.

    If you decide for car hire in Bratislava, not only will you be able to see the city, but also travel to other capitals and cities in the neighbouring countries, namely to Vienna, Budapest, Zagreb, Prague, or Krakow. Most of the car hire suppliers allow travel to different countries; you will need to purchase an additional cross border cover locally at the rental desk.

    Have a look at the general driving rules in Slovakia, and read our tips on driving and parking in Bratislava:

    • Traffic drives on the right-hand side.
    • Caution: the blood alcohol limit is 0 - don't drink before driving.
    • During the day, parking is paid in the city centre (from 8 am to 4 pm). You need a parking card with marked parking hours. The cards can be obtained from parking vendors or newsagents.
    • Parking is free during the weekends.
    • Restricted parking areas are marked with white crossed lines or blue reserved parking signs.

    Geographic Information

    Bratislava - the capital of Slovakia - enjoys a unique geographic location; it borders two countries: Austria to the west and Hungary to the south. The second biggest river on the European continent, the Danube, passes through Bratislava and three other capital cities: Vienna, Budapest, and Belgrade. Its central European location places Bratislava in the heart of the old continent, where you can find historical sites at your fingertips. Being located only 50 miles from Vienna, the Slovakian capital is a convenient spot for visitors. If you hire a car in Bratislava, you are bound to have an interesting time travelling through the centre of Europe. The best time to visit the city is spring and summer, as winters are cold and humid.
