The Small-Carpathian Express tourist bus has started its third season, carrying any tourists who would like to explore the beauties of the Bratislava region. It transports people every Saturday and Sunday and during the holidays along a route that passes through Bratislava, Svätý Jur, Pezinok, Modra, Zochova Chata, Častá and Budmerice. It is also possible to transport bikes on the bus.

“The Small-Carpathian Express is interesting for all ages,” said the chairman of the Bratislava self-governing region, Juraj Droba, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

It is suitable for lovers of history, culture, nature, crafts and traditions, touristic routes or cycling routes. We also cannot forget about the great gastronomy and excellent wines, he added. Droba recommends the lookout tower at Veľká Homola or the pumptrack route at Bike Park near Modra.

Travellers can purchase a ticket from the driver and you can also use the Bratislava Card City&Region.
