Join us as we travel from Bratislava to Ljubljana by bus in this travel vlog. Our day started early in Bratislava, Slovakia where we give you basically the shortest apartment tour we’ve ever done. In terms of the price of our AirBnB apartment, we forgot to mention it on the vlog, it came to $49 USD (42 Euros) per night. The listing is below:
Our Bratislava AirBnB:
Because we decided to change our travel route a few months ago from the Balkans to Poland, we had to cancel our Flixbus bus ticket meaning we ended up getting credit with them. We used this credit to purchase our ticket from Bratislava to Ljubljana via Vienna. The actual cost of the ticket was $32 USD / 28 Euros per person. The journey ended up being a full day event as we had a stopover in Vienna for a while. We arrived tired and hungry but also excited to be in Ljubljana, Slovenia for the 1st time.

Slovakia to Slovenia bus ride from Bratislava to Vienna to Ljubljana travel vlog video transcript:
Well good morning good morning. It is far too early for me. I think it is maybe six. Oh my gosh. Yeah. Six thirty. We need to leave soon. We really do. So today is a travel day. We’re leaving Bratislava and going to Ljubljana via Vienna so we’re going to be walking to the bus terminal. Before we go Sam is going to give you the world’s fastest apartment tour.
We’ve made it. 40 minutes early. We’ve made it so now we’re going to get some breakfast.
So what did we find? Sam got us Gatorade. Also we found a little bakery here. And a sandwich. They had some nice looking sweets but I’m just not craving that. Once we get on the bus I’m going back to sleep.
Time to say fare thee well to Bratislava. What did you think? You know what? I really connected with this place. Like we were here for a week. And like just by staying longer I was able to like go to a hockey game. In terms of visiting a lot of people just come on a day trip from Vienna or they’re arriving on a riverboat cruise and yeah you could cover a lot of the main attractions in a day but I feel it is definitely more of a weekend type of destination. If you can come for 2 or 3 days. Our favorite was Devin Castle.
Look it is PolskiBus. We had some really good rides with you in Poland.
We made it to Vienna. It is freezing cold in comparison to when we were here a week ago. It is even colder here than in Bratislava isn’t it? Seriously this morning. We have a one wait time but our bus should be coming soon and we will continue on to Ljubljana. What is in your hand? Got some juice. Apple juice. Picked up a few snacks that are in my backpack. We’ll munch away once we’re on the bus warm and toasty.
Snack. We’re on a bus. Finally. Continuing the journey. What did you get? These are pretty good for wafer cookies. These are like the when we were in Vienna we saw them all over the place. These are Manner Wien. Neopolitaner and pretzels.
Update. We have arrived a little bit behind schedule and we had no lunch stops. At the hangry stage. Yes. So we’re just going to grab some food around the station and that is that. Food.
Food has arrived. It was one of those days where we were like we’re going to eat at the first place we find. Haha. Not the healthiest. Coke, pizza and burek. Not Slovenian food but it is the first food we found. We’ll get into the local cuisine at some point.
This is how we feel after a day of riding buses. Urgh. We are both super greasy and tired oh my gosh. I need a shower. But where did we leave off? From the bus we walked to our AirBNB. It was a 20 minute walk. Yep. And we checked in, then we went and did some groceries. Honestly, I don’t even know why we’re tired because I slept on that bus ride so much. Like I slept 80% of the time. We’re really excited to be here. First time in Slovenia & Ljubljana. We’re going to be exploring the city. We also really want to do a day trip to Lake Bled. We have a lot that we’re going to do while we’re here after some rest. Saying good bye now.
