  • Bratislava knowledge

    My girlfriend and I are off to Budapest in a couple of weeks and we fancy getting the train to Bratislava for a day or maybe two. Does anyone know any spots I should hit? I've been to B'pest a couple of times so know a few shops there - but are there any decent spots in Bratislava? Any flea markets? On what days? Anyone?

    cheers people!
    We know when a mate buys it for you too.

    Lucky you! I hear its turning into the new stag capital of england sadly. Need to get out there myself...before the sloavaks hate us brits even more.

    Anyways. I asked a mate if he's been. he's getting back to me.

    Oh yeah. Email zeljko (sp). Very helpful. He might know someone there.

    Bratislava Open Air and Indoor Markets with Fresh Produce
    Posted: 31.07.2004 at 16:51:51 - 140 views


    It is a popular tradition for Bratislava families to do their weekend produce shopping at one of the city's lively market places. They are a welcome off-the-beaten-path sight for visitors who can sample local flavours from food through chinese running shoes.

    Some of the produce on offer is from local production (especially villages in southern Slovakia) but many stalls now offer the same imported produce from wholesale warehouses as in ordinary shops.

    Central Market Mileticova (Centralne trhovisko)
    The largest market with many food stalls also offering a variety of industrial products at discounted prices. Especially lively on Saturdays. Easily accessible by public transport.

    Main Indoor Market Trnavske myto (Hlavna trznica)
    This orangeish glass and metal structure has seen better times. Located on a busy junction, the Indoor Market offers produce and other food shops.

    Old Town Indoor Market Nam. SNP (Stara Trznica)
    A revived indoor market place in the centre of the city offering souvenirs, numerous fast food outlets, good beer and many specialty shops (newspapers, ethnic, nuts). Popular budget lunch spot during the day and in the evenings.

    Small open air markets can also be found on Polna (near Medical garden), Zilinska, Sancova, Mlynarovicova (Petrzalka) and M. Sch Trnavskeho (Dubravka).

      Don&#39;t expect to find any greatness on vinyl. It&#39;s a virtually wax-free zone.
      You might find a bit of plastic in antique/second hand book shops outside the city centre (there&#39;s one off Spitalska road).

      However, if you want to learn more about Czech and Slovak bands from the 60s and 70s, there&#39;s decent shit to be found on CD.
      Best selection at a shop in the shopping centre with the
      Carrefour hypermarket in suburban Petrzalka (5 minutes off the centre).

      Good luck.

        oh what a shame - I&#39;ve always been pretty lucky in Central Europe before (Belgrade, Warsaw, Budapest anyway). Architecture, food and beer then..

          I confirm. I went to Bratislava 4 years ago and it was totally dry. Remember that it&#39;s only 50 kms from Vienna and many records collectors/sellers went there us.
