Please note: I only passed through Slovakia via train due to a last minute change. My original route was to take me into Ukraine, but due to a Eurolines bus no showing I had to jump on train to Hungary. So not much to tell here. Information here is based on my personal travel & research- updated: (Dec 2011)

: Well, not much. It was a night train;-)
The Slovakian immigration lady didn't say much.
I brought a take away from Poland?!
I can't say I met many! Outside of Slovakia they seemed like a nice bunch and great to travel with.
The Slovakian Immigration lady spoke two words. I did not understand a either one.
Do not trust Eurolines in Poland if you are hoping to get into the Ukraine. Read my story about the Eurolines bus scandal here

Well, the train was comfortable.
What Exactly happened here?
As you gathered I had planned a trip into the Ukraine from Poland. I bought the Eurolines bus ticket in Krakow with a Polish friend. Showed up that night and waited by bus line number 4. The bus was due and never showed. The next day I went back to the office and to cut a long story short, was told it was there at bus line number 4. My polish friend lost his cool a little and we created a big fuss.
To cut a long story, instead of having to wait and 'trust' another bus to show up, I grabbed the next train to Hungary. The full story is on my travelogues.
Moral of the story: Travel plans can change in an instant. Be ready for it.
