We are making a brief visit to Bratislava in August. We heard that there is a pretty village which can be reached by bus. I think it is on the number 29 bus route but cannot remember the name of it. We would like to see a village or two. Can you recommend any and give bus numbers and time of journey. Many thanks.

Is it true that sightseeing without a guide is a criminal offense? http://www.budapesttimes.hu/index.php?art=1887
[ADMIN: As far as we know, it is not, although the incident in the article is mostly objectively described. Bratislava City authorities were not fond of the incident and regretted what had happened.]

We are planning to visit Bratislava with our family. We will have 8 family members.
Are we going to be arrested and taken to the ploce station for several hours if we do not pay for a professional guide, but use our guide books?
