First of all, do not forget about this guy on the left. Please do not forget to buy a ticket. You need one 0,70€ for one way. Ticket collectors in Bratislava are very though. They are accompanied by big bodyguards. But if you have a ticket you will find them very nice. They can advise you on the direction and so on. So do not forget about the ticket.

Afterwards, take a trolleybus no 203. You can find the schedule in English here. Look for the direction to BÚDKOVÁ. It is the terminus. This is where are you heading now. On your way up, you will ride by the castle and many wonderful overviews.
