1. Re: Prague to Bratislava via Brno or Lednice?

I am assuming you are still talking about private transfers, in which case it doesn't matter that much. Brno is right on the highway so no long detour, but there is more to see. Lednice is a bit off of the highway. It also depends on whether you want to see a city center (nice squares, churches, a castle on the hill) or a pretty chateau in a park. Apples and oranges, really.

Brno is a big city with lots to see and do - you need at least a week to scratch the surface, preferably more tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g274714-i1153-k6…

Lednice is a chateau which is off the beaten track. Bratislava is OK for a few hours or so - it isn't a natural tourist centre as it is rather small and is limited in its sights (unless, as I am, you are interested in post-war concrete/Brutalist architecture - unfortunately largely sadly neglected so see it while you can e.g. webnoviny.sk/fotografia/1116336/velka/trznic… …google.com/mw-panoramio/…18891217.jpg ), but if you have business there then go for it.

As with Bratislava, OK for lunch and a wander around for a couple of hours. It is quite close to Prague, though.

Kutna Hora is fantastic, but it is not a stopover on the way from Prague to Bratislava. It is a ways off of the highway and not on the train line. It is a perfect (and very popular) day trip from Prague, though.

I agree - It is only an hour away by train.

How are you going? You were talking about private transfers before. Important to know if you are driving or taking the train.

Brno is the obvious one, but it needs a few days - much longer than for Bratislava.

You also mention elsewhere that you are going to Kiev too. You need to get some sort of itinerary together, then it will be easier to advise you.
