Miklus Torture Prison on the right...
(pronounced 'Koh-Shhit-Say') is an upbeat & modern town in SLOVAKIA & it is also the administrative capital of East Slovakia, also the 2nd biggest capital after Bratislava.
Kosice is on the main train & bus lines, connecting various places in Poland & Hungary.
There are so much in the old town to invite travellers, with churches & museums; PLUS a Torture Prison !
Me & Marek didn't stay the night in Trencin (our previous destination)
[Click on 'Trencin'].
Instead we took the night train to Kosice. We slept on the train, by just sitting on the seat in the compartment (a bit awkward for me !) & arrived in Kosice in the morning with a teeth-clattering cold !; For me at least, not sure about Marek.
We stayed in Kosice till about 12 PM & continued our destination to Poprad.

We spent the night in Poprad...

MY ITINERARIES :
I arrived in Kosice on Wednesday 15th May, 2002, by train from Trencin.
The train from Trencin was at about 12.15 AM, & arriving in Kosice at about 4.30 AM; Me, with teeth-clattering cold !
I guess I was so uncomfortable sleeping on the train.
Me & Marek had a good time exploring Kosice ( you can see from the photos that I took) considering we were there for a few hours only, before taking our train to our next destination, Poprad our overnight stay, in a hotel room this time !
Enter Poland, from a point called Lysa Polana.
In Slovakia, I was in Bratislava, Cachtice, Kosice & Poprad; Previously I was in Austria, with a few places like Vienna, Durnstein & Salzburg.
