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!

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.

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

The Old Town is very easy to get around and see everything. It is flat for walking and many attractions and restaurants around.

It is a really relaxing town and not to many tourist around
Many students in town so make the town young and alive

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 !
