The cathedral leaves you breathless. Everything inside is big and charged with the Catholic belief and gives you the hint to stay, watch and reconcile your thoughts. Don't hesitate to go outside the Church and take the tour in the Church Tower. You will see the nice overview and Kosice surroundings. Don't miss it!

I had a short break during the day from my business trip and took the opportunity to go to the cathedral to look around. The inside is breathtaking and is a must go to if you are in the Kosice area. It is free however you can donate or pay 0.50 to 2 euro to light a candle.

The catedral is verry beatiful.Renovation work has discovered the beauty of stained glass and statues, Looks great when sunlight passes through the colorful stained glass windows.

This area of the city is just done beautifully. It is a wonderful place to take a stroll and enjoy. There are many things to see in a small area of less than a kilometer long.

One of locations for the World Without End series. One of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in Europe, worth visiting.

I have spent 23 years of my life in Kosice and the Cathedral of St. Elizabeth is a well-known sight for me. After many years hidden behind the scaffoldings it has been finally unveiled and restored to its former glory. The outside of the cathedral looks great, especially when lighted at night. Unfortunately, same can't be said about the interior.... More

Quite scary and I think 3 euros per person but it was fun to get on the top it. Ring the bell if you dare (not don't) No heath and safety like in UK, so is even more fun. Beautiful views of Kosice from the top so definitely worth climbing up!
