How to travel to Bratislava by Train:
After visiting Budapest, I took a train to Bratislava Hlavná Stanica Station from Budapest-Keleti Station and the journey took around 2.40h.
You cannot buy your ticket online, so don’t forget to ask for a one way ticket only, I didn’t mention that and the lady sold me a return ticket…so I ended up paying more than I needed.
