Bratislava Panorama from Castle.
Im not sure what kind of education or training you need to be a conductor on a train or sit in the information counter ,but it is not the smartest people in the world that are doing it, or perhaps they just got bad information to draw an conclusion?

Anyway.. I asked for a single ticket to Bratislava and got a return ticket, which i didnt know since i dont know what it really says on the ticket. First i wanted to take a train that left 19.00 and the woman in the information counter said it where ok to take this train. When i got on i showed the ticket to the conductor and he said that i had to pay extra to use my ticket here , but there was annother train that left in 1hour so i could might just wait.. Time passed by and i went on the other train that left in one hour, but when the conductor there checked me ticket the ticket was not valid because they  where using annother bordercrossing.. The total distance where about the same, but i went 70km further in Hungary and about 60km shorter in Slovakia. So it ment that i had to pay a staggering HUF 3111  extra (it pays pr kilometre).. My RETURN TICKET where 3825! I asked to get a recept, so i dont think they where joking with me.

What is wrong with these people? Anyway.. Im here in Bratislava now :)
