Religious Site
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.

  • Impressive cathedral that stands in the city centre in front of musical and dancing fountains, gardens. Unfortunately I found it closed because I went in the evening but lit from outside is truly breathtaking

  • 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
