When looking for a cooler place in nature, go to the Dobšinská Ice Cave or walk through Zejmarská gorge.

If you would rather sunbath near water, choose Palcmanská Maša. It is the biggest water reservoir in Slovenský Raj and offers bike and boat rentals.

Those looking for a great hike can go to Kráľova Hoľa, Havrania Skala or the iconic technical monument in nature – Chmarošský Viaduct. If you love riding horses, be sure to try it at Ranč pod Ostrou Skalou.

The train will commute every holiday and Saturday from Košice at 7:55 and will return at 18:46. The price of a one-way ticket is €6, while seniors, children and the disabled have a 50-percent discount. Tickets can be purchased at the Regional Information Point at Hlavná 48 in Košice or online at vylety.kosiceregion.com.
