The Velké Slemence-Mali Selmenci border crossing is a pedestrian-only crossing in the small, ethnically Hungarian village of Slemence (or Szlemenc in Hungarian) that is split between Slovakia and Ukraine. It saves one a lot of time, since you can only cross on foot, only EU/EEA and Ukrainian citizens are processed and customs checks aren't as rigorous as on the other road crossings between Slovakia and Ukraine.

However, on both sides of the border, Slemence is a small village and thus traffic is scarce, so you might find it hard to get to and get out of. There might be Ukrainian taxis willing to take you to Uzhorod for money.

The crossing is open every day between 08:00 and 20:00, but only to EU/EEA and Ukrainian citizens!
