In order to boost the accessibility of the UNESCO sites in the eastern-Slovak area, the local Košice Region Tourism organisation (Košice Región Turizmus) is launching another series of trips this year. One-day bus trips will be available in addition to the already popular rides on historical trains.On the list: the pleasures and pains of UNESCO inscription Read more
The bus trips have been divided into two lines, Viktor Wurm from the Košice Region Tourism told the TASR newswire.Nostalgic train rides to UNESCO sites expand, outside region as well Read more
“The first line is connected with the TOP events of the Terra Incognita project,” he said, as quoted by TASR, adding that two of them are “pilot events”, to be combined with wine tasting. This will help those who would like to learn about local wines but cannot taste them due to the zero-alcohol driving rule.
What is on offer?
“The first such event is Vôňa Agátu / Locust-tree Scent in Malý Horeš on May 19, during which visitors can taste natural wines from local producers,” Wurm said, as quoted by TASR.
The second one is Chlebom a Vínom (With Bread and Wine) on August 18 in Trebišov.Exploring Slovakia’s caverns and caves (Spectacular Slovakia - travel guide) Read more
The second bus trip project is the Cestovateľská Abeceda (Travellers’ Alphabet), during which participants will be able to fix stickers with the initials of the places they visit onto special game boards.
“The goal is to collect all the letters of the alphabet in five trips,” Wurm explained, as quoted by TASR, adding that the most patient and perseverant travellers can then win the last trip, called “X” because its destination is not revealed until the very last moment.
The first trip of this section is planned for June 3 and is called Gems of Gemer (Perly Gemera). It goes from Košice to Krásnohorské Podhradie, the Betliar mansion, Ochtinská Aragonitová Cave and the town of Rožňava, Wurm told TASR, adding that more information can be found on the Košice Región Tourism website.Remnants of Rožňava's mysterious Turkish, Hungarian past Read more
