People in Slovakia will have to move their clocks back an hour this weekend as daylight saving time is replaced by winter time. On October 27, the time will move back from 3:00 to 2:00.

This change will also influence two night trains operated by the state-run railway passenger carrier Železničná Spoločnosť Slovensko (ZSSK). More specifically, the Zemplín express train, leaving Humenné at 21:54 and arriving at Bratislava-Nové Mesto at 6:51, will stop for an hour at Ružomberok, and then continue its journey.

The train that runs in the opposite direction will also be affected. It will leave Bratislava-Nové Mesto station at 22:16 as usual and wait at Kraľovany for one hour. It will then arrive in Humenné at 6:33.

International trains

The trains in neighbouring countries will be affected too, as ZSSK spokesperson Tomáš Kováč informed the SITA newswire. Trains arriving in Slovakia after 3:00 will continue according to central-European time.

Night trains operated by the private carrier RegioJet will also have to wait in one of the stations, the company informed on its website.

The time change will affect the express train from Prague to Košice leaving at 21:47 and the 21:22 express train from Košice to Prague.

One bus route will also be affected; the bus from Budapest to Prague, leaving at 23:40 will wait for an hour at Bratislava.
