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.

    An amazing setting with the cathedral in a square surrounded by the city’s tram system, cycle routes, pavement and restaurants. The cathedral is simply stunning from all angles and very photogenic.

    There were flags displayed everywhere for the Vatican visit which I believe took place last year. Outside the entrance there was a cycle stand with a rather eccentric bike that was completely covered in crocheted knitwear - even the wheels!

    An early bell from the church, recovered and reconstructed after being damaged is on display and close to the Whistling Fountain and city theatre.

    Inside, the cathedral is impressively ornate with stained glass, statues and paintings. There was a service for service men and women when I visited and the atmosphere was very stately.

    I wish I could have spent longer but I only had a few minutes which hardly seemed to do it justice. I hope to return again.

    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

    A unique place to relax in the center of Kosice. The fountain is complemented by a park and benches for a pleasant sitting. In the evening, the whole atmosphere is complemented by light effects.

    This baroque monument is standing in a nice park behind the theatre. It’s from 1723, after the plague-epidemic and it commemorates the victory over that terrible event. Unfortunatelly it’s actual now because of the pandemic COVID19.

    After an old-city walk and a good lunch we went to Hradova-hill to see the panorama. We drove there by car but the bus No 29 runs from the centre to View Tower (Vyhliadková veža) bus stop. We walked from the car park in the forest about 20-25 minutes. It’s easy but you should wear comfortable shoes. The tower is 21, 5 metres and on the top there’s 3 panoramic terrace. We were over the city and could see Kosice. The view was amazing, it’s worth to visit it.

    A very nice location in a former industrial area. The burgers were tasty and the beer was great.
    Staff was okay.

    We visited the magnificent St Elizabeth Cathedral and behind it we saw this nice Chapel. It’s from 1380. In the past it was a cemetery chapel. It’s worth to visit this gothic St. Michael chapel and feel its special medieval atmosphere.

    This Gothic Bell Tower stands beside St,\. Elizabeth's Cathedral and is dedicated to St Urban the patron of vine-dressers. The tower was destroyed by a fire in 1966 and was rebuilt in 1971. The renovated bell sits in front of the tower. Sadly the tower was closed for the duration of our visit.

    All around Kosice you will find tiny sections of old stone work roped off but not until you visit the museum will you realise that the is the hidden Medieval walls. For a modest fee you can enter. Sadly their is a lack of information, which the museum could benefit from. But still worth a visit

    The oldest Marathon in Europe is represented by the statue of the runner known as the 'Victory Herald' which was built in 1960 and has since become the symbol of the historic race. Every winner of the Kosice Peace Marathon is inscribed on to the statue.

    Standing since 1945, in Liberation Square, near Aupark Mall, is a memorial to the soldiers of the Soviet Army. It consists of two columns with inscriptions, thanking the Red Army for Czechoslovakia's freedom from Germany.

    It’s near the main street and it’s worth to walk there, especially for Hungarians and history-fans. Ferenc Rakoczi II. prince is a famous national hero for us. He was the leader of the uprising against Habsburgs between 1703-11. He was exiled to Rodosto (Turkey). This Memorial House is the copy of his house with some original parts, so it’s called Rodosto-House, too. Outside we can see the statue of him.

    This is the oldest and first ever municipal coat-of-arms in Europe, dating from 1369. The beautiful angel stands proud with her wings spreads out, showing her as the protector of Košice, holding the coat-of-arms in its hands. You will find her at the front of the park around St Michael's Chapel.
