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.
