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.”

Much to see

The tourist train will commute on Saturdays with morning leave from Košice main station at 8:00.

“At Plešivec station, the train will be divided and travellers can choose if they want to continue to Muráň or Slavošovce,” said Lenka Vargová Jurková, manager of Košice Region Tourism, as quoted by TASR.
