Thus, three night trains of the state railway company Railway Company Slovakia (ZSSK) will stop for one hour in due railway stations, thus leaving passengers to sleep one hour more, the TASR newswire wrote.

“Night trains which will be riding at that time will remain stopped in stations for one hour, until their regular departure according to winter time,” ZSSK wrote to TASR.

These trains will include the EuroNight Bohemia train (departing at 19:46 from Humenné to Prague) which will remain stuck for one hour in Čadca between 1:59 summer time and 2:01, i.e. for 62 minutes; as well as the fast train Zemplín leaving at 21:37 from Humenné to Bratislava-Nové Mesto station – it will stop in Ružomberok between 1:59 summer time and 2:03, i.e. for 64 minutes.

The third train impacted will be the Zemplín fast train that rides form Bratislava at 22:37 from Bratislava-Nové Mesto to Humenné. It will stop in Žilina from 2:31 summer time until 2.43 winter time, i.e. 72 minutes.

Although people often welcome one hour more of sleep, lecturer at the P. J. Šafárik University in Košice, Eva Feketeová told the SITA newswire that children, elders and also sensitive individuals may feel problems as they may wake up earlier than the rest of the family. The fatigue during the day can then cause nervousness, concentration and memory troubles.
