Hitchhiking out

North towards Prešov, Poprad

On the ring road is a bus stop called Monok. You can take bus 33 here, but it only goes very rarely. Better is to take bus 71, 72 from the city centre (Námestie osloboditeľov) or 17 from the bus station and get off at Kalinovska. It's the first stop after you cross the ring road. From here, walk back until the long left bend, around 150m. Here you turn right down a gravel path and walk 100m to the next road. Cross at the zebra and follow the road down to the hitching spot.

South towards Miskolc (HU) E 79 E 71

When heading for Hungary you will see that the Milhosť-Tornyosnémeti border crossing is quite close, with not many towns on the way. Take tram 3, 4, 7 or 9, or buses 12, 34, 31 or 38 to VSS Križovatka station, which is under a bridge. Then continue walking on the road going south, in the opposite direction from the city center -- this is the only road to Hungary)-- or take tram 4 for two more stops. After walking for a while you will see on your right a large statue of the Pope, with a nice empty bus station to hitchhike from. It's best to hold a large H sign.

If you wish to continue to Budapest or other points, try to avoid entering Miskolc and instead ask your driver to drop you out before the road becomes motorway, and continue from there. trash:Košice
