      Hi folks, still here?

      Hi, I am visiting Kosice 5 June - 12 June 2015 will be staying in Barno Hostel.

      What are places to eat in a walking distance from that hostel?

      I found prices for CTC taxi, and as I see there is no alternative less than EUR10 from the airport after 10pm.
      I am trying to figure out what bus or train can I use from Barno Hostel to Moldavska Street LIDL, and from Barno Hostel to Kriva Street on the right side of Kosice map, in the road triangle.
      Anybody knows the local public transport?

      Night train to Prague (Praha)

      by anadyr Online Now Aug 30, 2014 at 7:00 PM


      Working on a trip from Eastern Slovakia (Bardejov) to Wroclaw, Poland. Looking at a lot of different options. Since Kosice is the major hub for Eastern Slovakia, looking at an overnight train trip to Prague - then bus up to Wroclaw. Just want to get everyone's opinion about the Slovak Rail sleepers for a single person traveling alone. I don't want to spend a day enroute Bardejov (or Kosice) to Wroclaw if I can do it overnight

      by hoopsdream Online Now Mar 22, 2012 at 12:03 PM

      I'm traveling to Kosice this fall. It is much cheaper to fly into Vienna, and I want to incorporate a visit to Bratislava anyway. So, questions are:

      1. what is the frequency of relatively direct train service, Vienna-Kosice and Kosice-Vienna? I would want to stop off in Bratislava on the return to Vienna.

      @. What is approximate duration of trip and approximate cost?

      Trying to decide if this is too much hassle to save about400 in air fare from the US. THANKS.

      Question about the train from Prague to Kosice

      I have searched through the forums on this, but I am still a little confused. When I go to this site:

      I am not yet able to buy a train ticket for March when I intend to visit. Is this correct?

      Also, if I go through this website, will I be able to get both a reservation on the train and a seat reservation? I have seen some questions about that.

      Planning a visit to Kosice

      by danjherman Online Now Nov 28, 2011 at 9:57 AM

      Good morning!

      I am planning a trip in early 2012 to Kosice. I have never visited the
      city. My great grandparents came to the United States from Kosice in
      1890. This is going to be a very exciting trip for me. My plan, right
      now, is to fly in to Prague and spend a total of 8 days or so in
      Europe. I know from reading the threads here that there is a train
      that takes one from Prague to Kosice that is about 9 hours long. My
      thought is to spend one whole day and spend overnight in Kosice,
      before taking the train back to Prague. I know, for sure, the one
      thing I want to do is eat a great meal at Golem. Being a beer lover,
      this is a must for me. It also appears that the town of Kosice is very
      central and most if not all of the great city sights can be found on

      I am looking to stay with one of the local pensions in town and have contacted a few of them already.

      Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you very much,

      General Information on Transportation and Places to Eat

      by monica71 Online Now May 21, 2010 at 6:38 PM

      I will be in Kosice from June 20 to June 25. I will arrive by plane, therefore I would like to know if I can easily find a cab at the airport to take me to the city center at Hotel Bristol, where I will be staying. How much should I expect to pay for the ride? Are there fixed prices or you need to talk to the cab driver and agree on a price?

      Another thing I would like to know is if there are any good places to eat close to the hotel. I am allergic to meat, but I can eat fish. I am also hoping that people speak a little bit of English at the restaurants so we can understand each other a little. I do not expect to find places with an English menu, but I hope to find places where people are friendly and willing to share good and traditional food to friendly tourists.

      Hello (Dobry den)

      I am travelling with a colleague through Slovakia in early May 2010, and we have decided to visit Kosice during our travels, in our guide it mentions a festival and while we are there we would like to explore the city and region.

      Please can you tell me what you would recommend to see and do in Kosice? Any good local pubs/restaurants/Krcma? We have read about the main square, St Elizabeth's cathedral.

      I hear of a children's railway nearby, can you please advise us of how we would get to it.

      From Kosice we plan to travel by train to Romania and hope that we can travel through northern Hungary towards Satu Mare?

      My friend was recently asked, by the Slovak Border Police, to show proof of posessing108 per day for his visit before entry into the country. He had enough cash on him at the time, so it was no problem. I have never personally dealt with this, but it has me a bit concerned. I will be arriving at the same entry point soon, but I do not like carrying large amounts of cash. I have been told there is a way to show them how much money you have on your credit card, but that they only take statements from banks within the Slovak Republic. Can someone please tell me how I might show them proof of funds without carrying the cash? This particular situation is something I've never dealt with. Thanks.

    • Kosice to Revuca

      by montereyguy Online Now Apr 14, 2007 at 6:42 PM

      I have been planning a trip to see my good friends and former school mates in Revuca, and I will be leaving next month. The trip is all planned out except for how to get from the airport in Kosice, where I will land, to Revuca. Since I will arrive on a Sunday, I am told bus service may be limited. I am really looking for the easiest and safest way to get to Revuca. My friends do not own a car, so they are unable to pick me up. I don't mind paying a little more to make things a bit easier for myself, but I do not know this area of the country. My friends have advised me not to rent a car and drive myself, but they are not experienced drivers, so I do not know if their perception is accurate. Since this is the only part of the trip that isn't ironed out, I would really appreciate any input. My current plan is to try for a bus, and if that fails, take a taxi, or if that option is not viable, then I will stay the night and take a bus the next day. Will a taxi take me that far, and if so, how much should I expect to pay? Does anyone know of a better option?
