Košice is the second largest city in Slovakia.

Hitching Out

South towards Hungary (Miskolc and Budapest)

When heading for Hungary you will see that the border is quite close, with not many towns on the way. It's best to use the public transport system (ticket is around 10 SK, not many conductors) to get to VSS križovatka station (trams 3, 4, 7 and 9 or buses 12, 34, 31, 38) which is under a bridge. continue walking on the road which goes south (opposite center direction, this is the only road to hungary), or take tram 4# for 2 more stops. After walking for a while you will see on your right a big statue of the Pope, with a nice empty bus station to hitchike from. It's best to hold a big H sign. If you wish to continue to Budapest, try to avoid getting out inside Miskolc and instead get out before the road becomes highway, and continue from there.
