Slovak nation railway company also connects Bratislava with Kosice, however, the quality of trains and service is far beyond RegioJet.

Hi zooey,

yes and no. Depends on what kind of train do you choose. Intercity train (which cover that distance in 5 hours) does not stop in Zvolen. However, normal train (7 hours to get to Kosice) stops in Zvolen.
