Paddling season in Košice Region, eastern Slovakia, might be longer thanks to the new Slovak-Hungarian project for Hornád River. Those interested in kayaking on the Hornád will be able to rent a kayak from the summer of 2024 in a self-service rental shop. President of the Košice Self-governing Region, Rastislav Trnka, claims this system allows people interested in individual rafting to make a reservation and the rafting itself without the need of physical contact with the operator. In eastern Slovakia, self-service rental shops can be found in the villages of Veľká Lodina, Kysak, Ždaňa, Trstené pri Hornáde and Milhosť. Those interested can float on the river all the way to Hungary. To make navigation easier and to warn of dangerous spots on the river, signs have also been installed for paddlers.
