About
The historical centre of Košice, whose medieval city walls were removed in the 18th century, is today formed by a nearly one kilometer long promenade lined with exquisite historical buildings, once inhabited by medieval kings and nobility. Together with craftsmen's houses, churches, squares and narrow streets, they create an atmosphere full of legends and stories. You can uncover these and more!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Maybe worth half a day of walking around, but stay here any longer and the soul-sucking, depressive energy will destroy you. There is so little to the place, nothing to experience. What little people they are will not want to interact with you, the restaurants will make you want to eat and leave quickly (not a problem with the quality of food, but the service).
For anyone that wants to truly experience and place and bask in the culture, AVOID Kosice. There are so many other places that can give you cobbled streets and cathedrals. It is a black hole.

The city has a lot to see with one of the biggest (mainly unspoiled and well renovated) historic centres in Eastern Europe. It is easy to spend 2 full days just in the historic area, with many sites, museums, cathedral with high look-out tower, bars with good local food and drink, all in a safe pedestrian area. One of the hidden gems or East EU, very well worth a trip!
We met people from the UK on day-trips (with a total cost much cheaper than a day-out in London or any UK city).

Kosice city gate museum. At the time of writing, it costs 4 Euros to walk/see underground structure. Nothing special at all. Very minimal artifacts to see. But, number of video projections of re-enactments which weren't very interesting. I stayed at Zlary Dukat hotel which is nearby - the hotel is built on old city structure and you'll be able to see ancient foundations, structures, hallways for free. I don't beleive you need to stay at the hotel to view these features.

It's one of the most magical cities, also considering I'm Slovak and go there yearly to visit relatives and close ones. You can visit the shopping centre, with a wide range of activities to do and even a daycare centre where you can take a break from children. There is incredible history, I must point out St. Elisabeth's cathedral. It's one of the biggest in the country and it dates back from maybe 300-400 years. There are plenty of sights to see, shops down the road and old tram tracks which were removed due to earthquakes happening. I suggest buying something traditional as a souvenir, although there are plenty of souvenir shops down the road. There are fountains, which play along with music in a specific pattern that looks satisfying. Behind that there is the State Theater which I've never been to, it looks quite old and many famous plays are played there. Crime is low, but you should keep personal items near you to prevent robbery. I suggest visiting Aida, which are establishments that sell Sweet Treats, Ice Cream and even fruit cups. They are very nice for reasonable prices.

A beautiful spot to spend hours taking in all the Old Town section has to offer. So many little spots to stop and have a meal or a sweet treat. Our favourite spot that we went to 3 times in a week was restaurant da Gigi, their tomato soup was to die for. Supper meals at Central were great, they got to know us fast and we felt at home, like regulars. Camelot was just down one of the side roads and had fantastic food and drink. I would say just go, the english is strong there, we had no problems at all.

Not very big just perfect for a nice walk, take your time to stop and admire the architecture of the buildings on the Hlavna/main street with some very nice example of Art Nouveau and not only. I would simply recommend you walk the full street on one side and return on the other you can do this in an hour or so with picture taking included. There are many good places to grab a coffee and a cake too as is Slavia or Cafe de Paris.

The historical centre is largely a pedestrian precinct so is a very good place to stroll within and enjoy a coffee or bite to eat, whilst you people watch. Soe interesting architecture and a lot of the tourist attractions are within a short walk of each other.

Just picked a random place to stop in Slovakia for a few days and absolutely fell in love with this beautiful city centre, its not big but its so vell preserved and nice. Awesome church and beautiful historic buildings with both hi-fasion bars and traditional restaurants along the main streets. So many young and trendy people to sit people watching. The rest of the city have less charme and interest for tourist I recon
