Cathedral of St. Elizabeth (Dom svatej Alzbety), Kosice

4.8
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. Our Kosice trip site makes visiting Cathedral of St. Elizabeth (Dom svatej Alzbety) and other Kosice attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • St. Elisabeth Cathedral is a beautiful cathedral with a special story. Also the architecture is absolutely stunning from the outside as well as the inside, even though from the inside some parts look really new and don't really fit in.
  • Most dominant and beautiful cathedral in Slovakia. Just visit and enjoy the architecture. Looks best in winter with all the lights on.
  • Great building. Freemasonry signs on some of the windows, be sure to take a pic of that :)
  • This Cathedral is one of the biggest Gothic churches in middle Europe, and a must see if you come to visit this city.
  • The biggest gothic church in Slovakia. Spectacular
