  • Beautiful historic monument that monument is also a rímskokatolickou. Standing in the heart of the historical core of the city is so majestic that everyone admires. It is named for Elizabeth svatej, who was born in Sárospatak, in Hungary, and is buried in the Hungarian magnate Rákoci. From its high tower is a spectacular view of Košice

  • I'm not a religious person, so didn't visit this cathedral for that reason. Regardless of your faith (or lack thereof) it's worth coming here to admire the architecture. The building is beautiful, with great stonework. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Stunning place, you can climb upstairs to the north tower with the best view over the whole city - worth of fee and a few steps. Whatmore, F. Rakoczi (on of the biggest hungarian persons) down in the crypt.
  • One of the most famous landmarks in kosice, the cathedral looks stunning from the outside giving a great landscape to the whole area around but from inside isn't as great! You can request to Climb the minaret for a great top view for the old city of kosice
  • Absolutely beautiful cathedral in the middle of town. I recommend paying to take the stairs all the way up into the tower. Its worth the climb to see the entire town!
  • Very nice. For 2€ you can go to the top of cathedral
