Amazing cathedral

The cathedral has magnificent exterior and even more beautiful interior. We were there some minutes before closing time so we had luck to be the only visitors. We were amazed by beautiful altar, sculptures, stained glass windows. Definitely a must in Koši

Kosice  Historical Centre

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!

Especially behaviour of people is poor

Well, this zoo has some very great exhibits. The bear was alone, but he had a great space and seemed to have quite natural behaviour. Other animals had a shockingly small exhibit, for example the big cats. What struck me most however, was the behaviour of

Reviewed By Greenlakereener - Vancouver, CanadaVancouver, Canada

Really Fun To See,

Located in a little park in the middle of the Old Town Sqaure, between the opera house and the cathedral, the Singing Fountain is really fun to see. Music plays and the water dances in time to the beat. It’s kind of like a mini-Bellagio Las Vegas fountain

Beautiful Baroque Statue

The statue adds to the charm and Olde-world atmosphere of the main tourist street in Košice. Lovely restaurants surround the area. Go at night so that you can see the dancing fountains light up at dark.

Great Visit on a rainy day

Miklus Prison is a very authentic remnant of the past as it has survived time without too many steuctural changes. At the beginning there is an informative video that illustrates the build up of Kosice's defences over time and the significance of the muse

It's a kind of cultural centre I really love - old revitalised industrial building with many separate or linked areas, offering different opportunities and cultural content. Concert space, cinema, few galleries, co-working space and single offices, severa

Fairytale

Came across the Jakabov Palace whilst wandering around this beautiful city. Reminded us of the palace in Disneyland Florida except this was real! Disappointed we couldn't see inside so spent 10/15 minutes wandering around it and enjoying the architecture.

Grand architecture

The best view of this lovely building is from the small park with the fountains in the foreground. It is exquisitely decorated with statues on top of the balcony above. A throw back to Victorian times and worth a look.
