Default eastern europe train help

hey everyone,

I'm going from Vienna to Bratislava to Budapest. Are trains the way to go? I've heard that Bratislava is only an hour outside of Vienna, and it's better to go back to Vienna and then Vienna->Budapest on the train rather than Bratislava->Budapest. Any ideas?

It doesn't seem like the best idea to me, as both rides (Vienna-Budapest and Bratislava-Budapest) last 3 hours each. So you'd be adding time to your travel by going back to Vienna. Plus, the cost of the ticket to Budapest will be lesser if bought in Bratislava. Vienna is one hour away but it's a whole different whole costwise !!!
