Slovakia's largest church, Cathedral of St. Elizabeth (Dom svatej Alzbety) also serves as the town's premier landmark. Today the structure displays many different aspects of its mixed architectural heritage, thanks to a number of add-ons and restorations. Enter the 14th-century cathedral and get an up-close look at the interior double-spiral staircase, a rarity in terms of construction. Wander the inner sections of the building, passing intricate frescoes and sculptures as you go. Make sure to stop by the altar of St. Elisabeth backed by an ornate glass window and vaulted ceilings. Climb 60 m (197 ft) to the top of the bell tower for a panoramic view over the city and surrounding hills.

  • Spectacular building, inside and out. Very central position. Plenty of weddings taking place! Climbing the North Tower is highly recommended.  more »
  • Definitely a must see in Košice, though I would not recommend any guide, just buy a brochure or something and take your time. Also climb up the tower if possible :)  more »

  • Old, post-hungarian Cathedral is great and fantastic, without a doubt! But slovakian organization of sightseeing and their "kindness" are horrible.
  • Beautiful cathedral in the middle of the main street. Find the time to also climb to the top of the tower.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful cathedral in the middle of the main street Hlavna For small money it's really nice to go on the top of the tower which offer a great view of kosice
  • Very nice. For 2€ you can go to the top of cathedral
