Slovenia is a very popular spot for Polish skiers, especially ones that are living in southern east part of our country. However, Bratislava, the capital, is not as much famous. Also, thanks to the small airline carriers we can travel to Bratislava for a penny, so a lot more travellers get interested into this amazing city. What attractions waiting for us in there?
Even that prices in airline companies are very reasonable, we always have a chance to pay enen less for the same flight. If you like to travel to Bratislava for a song, try to book your ticket several months before trip. In that case you can pay even 70% less than right before the flight. Another option for savings is luggage. For only weekend long journey you don’t need to take plenty of items. That is why you shouldn’t buy registered bagagge, carry-on option should be enough for you. But remember, free of charge bag is going on board with you, so it cannot contains dangerous materials. Make sure that any object with shar edges is not in your bag, like scissors or knife for example. Also, you don’t need to buy a travel insurance, even if suggested. It will only protect your money if you will like to miss the trip.
