Another big welcome into the main street of Kosice, a wide cafe-lined avenue with tram tracks and a 3 foot wide and 2 foot deep rill running down the middle. We briefly check whether crossing this in the car is in the route book as we have been asked to do worse. Fortunately it is not and like most of the competitors that have arrived ahead of us we pull in and head for one of the numerous cafes.
Kosice was the 2013 European Capital of Culture and the main street is lined with historic buildings of many styles and ages. However this only forms a backdrop to a much needed beer.
