My relatives are also in area 2, where it borders with the western
"beige" area (Kassa/Kosice environs)....it is "Scezs Keresztur"
(known now as Zemplinska Teplica). I think the big town "Galszecs"
nearby is now Secovce. Like some other small towns, the current name
is from their hot springs in the town. One of our relatives sent us
a book (in Slovak, of course) on the town, we were delighted.
