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!

Lovely city !
Oct 2019
The evening walk just blown me away when the city's fountain danced in colors with classical music on. Something I did not expect . It just made me frozen with delight. The Opera house infront of it and St. Elizabeth Cathedral lend a magical evening ambiance. Everywhere are bars and restaurants. Friendly atmosphere. A big shopping mall is near Hilton Hotel within the city area.Parking is a problem with parking police always on the job. There is modern advancement around yet it still remains a Slovakian historical spirit. I would be glad to come back here again !

As always we like the walk in Košice. There are lots of restaurants with good and not expensive food with seats on the Main street. You can get beer for less then 2 EUR

Beautiful day and night

The town centre is stunning with nice architecture and plenty of small restaurants and cafes. The centre piece is the Cathedral but the city itself stands out quite nicely to give a complete feeling of a city.

beautiful town
Oct 2019 • Family
košice is a beautiful town. it is compact and you can see most of what it was to offer sight seeing wise in a day. The main street is wide and boasts numerous historic buildings close to each other. the main area is well maintained and picturesque. the atmosphere is very relaxed and there are few tourist shops and certainly no hassle. there are many bars cafe and patisseries. it is very easy to get around and i really recommend a visit.

If you have heard Kosice is very pretty city, so I can tell you that it's true. Kosice has lovely and historical center where you can find several beautiful buildings and other interesting monuments. The dominant of the city center and the city symbol is Dom Svatej Alzbety (St. Elizabeth’s Cathedral), so you can find very close to that Kaplnka Svateho Michala (St. Michael Chapel), Immaculata (the statue), Urbanova Veza (Urban’s Tower), Spievajuca Fontana (Singing Fountain), Statne Divadlo (historical building of State Theatre), Stara Radnica (Old Town Hall), than nearby is Miklusova Vaznica (Miklus Prison), bit far away Jakabov Palac (Jakab’s Palace), Dolna Brana (ruins of city walls and archeological monuments situated underground), several museum (one with Kosice treasure) and parks. There is also ZOO and ruins of Kosice Castle situated in suburb, even out of the center, but it’s worth it to mention. As cherry of the top not to be missed is the St. Elizabeth’s Cathedral Tower view.
