I am trying to get information about traveling from Krakow to Bratislava. I am having trouble finding trains and prices. Has anyone done this recently?
When I was going from Krakow to Vienna there was no train from Krakow except the night train. I took a bus from Krakow to Bohumin and then train from there to Vienna. You could do that then continue on a train from Vienna to Bratislava. The train from Bohumin to Bratislava bypassing Vienna actually takes longer and has two intermediate transfers. Hopefully those more familiar with this area of Europe will have other options and information for you.
The fastest connection by public transport: bus from main bus station (it's next to the Main train Station in Krakow) leaves at 14:10, arrives to Ostrava Main Train Station at 16:25. Train (direction Vienna) leaves Ostrava at 17:00, arrives Breclav at 18:48, you change trains there, train direction to Budapest leaves Breclav at 18:59, arrives Bratislava at 19:50.
