According to Košice Region Tourism a new train connection is one of the tools to help tourism in the region of Gemer.

“The Gemer Express is second out of four extra touristic connections that tourists can use,” said Rastislav Trnka, chairman of the Košice self-governing region, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “I believe that also those who will visit the region because of the hockey championship will use the opportunity for one-day trips in Gemer.”
