“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.
