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!

One day was sunny and gave impression of the Cathedral that is ready to launch towards the sun. However, the second day had nothing from the previous day. It was snowy, windy and very cold. As...

Dating back to the 13th century, having survived many calamities and reconstructions it is still impressive and magnificent reminding... More

This cathedral has an impressive history, looks incredible and neighbours a singing fountain to enjoy the view. From time to time there is an impressive light show. There should be no more gothic constructions to the East.
