When Not To Leave Bratislava

On Thursday (Oops! Make that Wednesday - they do believe in long weekends here) before Good Friday, when university students are apparently heading home in droves to Budapest and possibly other places. The crush of people trying to board trains on certain platforms would have been frightening if it weren't so orderly and calm.
Fortunately the back-and-forth commuter-type train to Vienna wasn't crowded at all. One schedule had our train departing from Platform Five but a workman soon let us know we weren't riding to Vienna in this...
We move ourselves to Platform One, board the train, and bid farewell to Bratislava and its crowded hlavn√° stanica
