@DMac - prices per 11/2018
Gasoline Natural 95 - 1,36 € / L
Gasoline Diesel - 1,31 € / L
Mandatory motor third party liability insurance (usual VW Golf or similar) - cca 100 - 150 € / year
Optional Motor damage insurance (accident, natural disasters, theft,...) - cca 400 - 600 € / year
Annual taxes for car "road tax" - only for entrepreneurs/companies - usual 3 years old car 2000ccm - cca 100 - 150 € / year

So if you are OK with only mandatory insurance, it´s pretty cheap compared to Western EU.

hi, how much does it cost 1 kg of sovietic candies like: belochka or similar. Average cost for chokolate candies please.
#DMac on Sep 04, 2018 :
Are there any estimated cost for items related to the ownership of the automobiles listed, e.g. auto insurance, license plates and annual renewal for plates (annual taxes and "tags/stickers" for license plates), vignettes, parking?
#Anonymous on Mar 16, 2017 :
This does not make sense. Distribution of expense claims 27.3% towards rent. Well, when you consider a 1 bedroom apartment is 397.83 euros OUTSIDE of the city center with an average Monthly Disposable Salary of 924.55 €? That is more like 43% just to live away from the city center. In the city centre it is more like 57%

This is why most people in Bratislava cannot afford to live on their own and live with a roommate or a partner.
#MarekM on Aug 21, 2016 :
to Eva: Cross-country express train "Rýchlik" or "R" from Bratislava to Humenné (one way, total 550 km) is for about 22 € without any student or senior discount.

Standard prices, without any discounts:
24 hr bus ticket for Bratislava /only city area/ = 3,50 €
24 hr bus ticket for Bratislava /city+surrounding villages/ = 6,90 €
7 days bus ticket for Bratislava /only city area/ = 11,40 €

Busticket for 90 minutes ride via SMS was for long period on 0,90 €, but now is more expensive - 1,30 €
#Mate on Jun 08, 2015 :
