Passing through Košice
With 250 000 inhabitants, Košice in Eastern Slovakia is the second largest city in the country, after the capital Bratislava. The easiest way to get to Košice from Budapest, is to catch a train from Keleti railway station. The train ride takes 3 ½ hours and costs 6300 forints (around 20 euros).
Košice was probably not that famous until last year, when it became the European Capital of Culture for 2013. I had one full day in Košice, which was the perfect amount of time to have a look around the city.
I happened to be in Košice when Košice Night Run was organized. More than 1000 people participate in the 10 km run through the city. I had a great final evening in Košice with Zuzana, her family and friends, cheering on the contestants, eating pizza and experiencing the lively atmosphere in the city.
