We continuously walk toward Tomasovsky Vyhlad viewpoint, stepping your foot on a hiking trail to the small hill🏞🏞🏞. On the top of the small hills, you’ll find the fantastic views for one village sits at the heart around by an extensive and prolific fertile Agricultural, each village connect to the other village. This also is one of the entry for Slovak Paradise National Park, a national park presents a natural complex of extraordinary values and beauty. We are travel in the wintertime so would not view for harvest agriculture but the area, rich in the soil, another striking scenery views give us delightful feeling. Although we can easily hike in other seasons, even in the winter, we really didn’t expect to walk on snowor ice, it would be more difficult than usual. This is the effort that even people who grew up in the four seasons but who are not in the snow country will hard walk on snow or ice, especially likes us whose live in country do not have the four seasons but it is a good experience.

In the wintertime, although not easy while walking hiking on the ice up trails but it also bestow us only winter have the scenery. Oh, be careful ah😲😲😲… careful and concentrate for walking with avoid for fell down on our walking hiking. White and crystalline of trails give us clearly capture the route connection from a village to other village🏕🏕🏕. The serene beauty of the rurals are surrounded by layered brown wide soils and connect by the snow road to the other rurals is a wonderful sight to behold.

Traveling in winter, although it has no spring flowers🌻🌷🌸, summer green🌲🌳🌳, autumn red🍁🍁🍁 but fertile and cultivated colors bring us another beautiful art. From the path, you can peer down at a desolate meadow in winter and enjoy for view wide land concealed by a minor of pure white snow while the art that nature bestow to us. This is a simple art painting rarely seen in nature. You can image the layered brown and orange of the fields are same like the picture of an oil painters brush strokes, but these pastel-colored hills are reality in front of our eyes .

Slovak Paradise National Park presents a natural complex of extraordinary values and beauty. Many mysterious eye-catching ravines and tight formations can be admired throughout the area. Slovak Paradise National Park offers specific conditions for the life of rare and seldom seen fauna and flora.



As mentioned before, this is one of the entrances to the Slovak Paradise National Park. But when we arrived, we discovered that there are not only Slovak Paradise National Parks but also link with other forests🏞🏞.🏞Although we didn’t go deep into the forest, but in the forest we saw that the beauty of the autumn red leaves fell on the white snow-covered land🍁🍂🍂. Plus, you also can view some part of green forset🌲🌳🌲. We think this is the beauty of another painting of nature. Of course, its also have the leafless of trees which around the pure white of the snow. Not only for that, have some mountain climbers made a mark on the tree to let other mountain climbers know where the nearest exit is. We believe this is one of the Slovakia climbing attractions in the summer. Plus, this forest is also a relaxing place for nearby residents to walk or jogging🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️.

On the top of small hill, another direction which only 500 mater is another tourist view that is Tomasovsky vyhlad, most popular viewpoint at the rocky terrace on the left bank of the Hornad river. It offers unique views of inner parts of the Slovak Paradise (of the Biely potok and Prielom Hornádu valleys) and through the Hornádska kotlina basin of the nearby Vysoké Tatry (High Tatras) mountains🏔. Because off we have not any experience hiking mountain on the wintertime and we have not bring any climbing mountain accessories.

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💲💲💲.

You can find money changer at the train station


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.

A really small train station

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.









Arrived Village:
Sometime we like chooses the train as one of our public transport. This is because different scenery🏞🛤🛤 show in front of your eyes when the train is moving slowly and it is good felling. On the road for go to the Spišské Tomášovce, let us feel alleviate and sit on the train for view of different natures view in different small villages.
