I'm not sure what you mean with Romania and translating the street from Hungarian?

Hi, fo utca is Hlavna ulica - I guess it is still the same in the very centre of Kosice - have a look at the map here

Berniczki sounds Polish, Volos - it dependes if the last s is read sh or s. If "sh" - sounds Slovak and meaning could be derivated from vol - ox. If "s" - sounds Ukrainian and the meaning is hair. I cannot help you more.

The building almost certainly exists but the numbering could be different. Hlavna has apparently had it's name changed over the years - during the Second World War it was named Hitlerova, then it was changed to Leninova, then Hlavna.....and the numbering changed along with that. If you really wanted to find the building, it would be best to find an old map - perhaps the East Slovakia Museum could help.

As for the names, my husband feels that 'Berniszky' is probably Polish but 'Volos' sounds Hungarian, though it's highly possible that they could be Kosice people as Kosice was a very cosmopolitan city in those days and people often referred to themselves as "Košičania" (Kosice people) rather than Slovak, Polish, Hungarian, etc. It was a real melting pot and still is! Sorry, this probably doesn't help one bit....

Travel Tips for Kosice

Kosice by night

by HORSCHECK

Kosice has a very special and unique attraction at night. It is the singing fountain which simultaneously reacts to music as well as being illuminated by dynamic light scenes to the sounds. The fountain is located in the little park in between the State Theatre and the St. Urban Tower.

Also some of the buildings around the Main Square (Hlavne Namestie) are well worth seeing at night. Among them are the St. Elisabeth Cathedral, the St. Michael Chapel and the St. Urban Tower.

Kosice Tip

by richmors

The people are nice and open. The third girl was making a picture of these two and after 'clicking' I said: 'hoho, stop I am not ready and please look to me!' They were surprised (and nice) as you see.

Beggar's House

by tinaklis

When walking the Hlavna (Main) Street watch for the most beautiful house of the Kosice city center. Most probably you won't find it in tour guides but for sure it is worth seeing.

There is a legend that the person who built it was a beggar. But people of Kosice were so generour that from the money he begged he was able to build his own place. To express his gratitude, on the top of the building there is his statue bowing and thanking to all generous people.

Domica cave and Slovak Karst

by annamariana

2 hours driving from Kosice . . .

. . . • Caves in the Slovak Karst •
- from the list of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites Eastern Slovakia

Slovakia's karst area has high number of caves.
The number of caves is the highest one among the highest ones in Europe. Thirteen caves are open to the public. Among them, Ochtinská Aragonite Cave is one of three aragonite caves in the world.

There are bones of a cave-bear - Domica´s archeological findings.

Honoring Good Workers!

by lmkluque

There were many nice things to see and do in Kosice and even more these days. There were many things I thought interesting, such as a store window with a few less than top quality clothes for sale, priced at "a months wages," which seemed to me outrageous. I would have taken a picture if I had been on my own, but wasn't sure how my relatives would interpret it, so I didn't. (Also, I didn't belong to VT then.)

Walking along the street, we came to a wall filled with pictures of people. I took the photo when told what it was for and was sure my relatives wouldn't mind. I don't know if this Worker's Wall, located in a prominent space in the center of town, can still be seen or not, it celebrated those people who have made their nation proud by doing their best.
