How To Go:
In Europe, train🚉🚉🚉 is extremely vast with can truly connect everywhere of European, even from the bustling capital cities to the smallest villages so you can get arrived the beaten path without having to rent a car. In Kosice Slovakia, that is only has one Railway Station which situated at Staničné námestie and near the western bank of the river Hornád. Although it has different type of train at Europe but for go to Spišské Tomášovce, you must use Local Regional Trains. Regional trains are stop by stop at every train station even in small region. Today, regional train still is their main and popular transport especially for the small village. Many town 🏙🏙🏙 or village🏡🏡🏡 can only arrived by Regional Trains and Spišské Tomášovce is one of village while they are one of the best ways to transport you to non-touristy areas. Remember normally some small train station is no has counter to sale the ticket🎫🎫🎫, so you must purchases the ticket from the Train Ticket Examiner at the train that is why I mentioned just now also can purchases ticket from Train Ticket Examiner. Regional Trains do not have high speed train save the time and must use more time to arrive the destination, of course compare to other the price is most cheaper. You no need to buy train ticket early, you can either direct buy from station ticket counter or buy from Train Ticket Examiner in the train. By the way , the ticket price from Kosice to Spišské Tomášovce is 4.45 € per adult💲💲💲.
This is a train ticket with a valid time of 24 hours🕛🕛🕛. One of the benefits for us by using Regional Train, while you can use valid time of day to get to your destination. In our planning, we plan for catch up on train in 07:15am and we buy the train ticket for that time but we late for 5 minute and the train is leave off. Lucky, the train ticket valid on 24 hour so we no need waste the money for purchase another train ticket. While wait for the train arrived, relax on the station and drink a cup coffee☕☕☕. HAHAHA….😝😝😝.
Although, this is not our first time to take the train for travel but this is our first time ride the train as travel in Europe. For use train as transport to a travel destination either can be easy and can be hard. First you must look for the “Departure LCD Monitor”, there are usually multiple LCD Monitor throughout at the train station and one main LCD Monitor at entry place. Normally “Departure LCD Monitor” has two languages one is local language and another one is English so you must patient for wait of English language. The most important thing to note is departure time, direction, destination to make sure your train is in which platform. Especially for Regional Train, the area you arrived maybe not show at Destination Category, would show at Direction Category because the Destination is their final stop. Direction normally is stop by stop at every smaller train station and your arrived area maybe stop at one of them. Sometimes the train you take may appear in the “Departure LCD Monitor” a few minutes before train departure to inform you which platform will arrive so you must always pay attention to the LCD Monitor. And remember when get off and get on the train, the door is not automatic so you must press the GREEN button just beside the door. Oh, make sure you must wait in front of the door EARLY and press the GREEN button when get off the train. For those who missed your destination, don’t worry you can got out on next destination and just walk to opposite side for wait another train.
