Well preserved city centre with many historic sights.
Extremely few and pretty expensive accomodations
In a nutshell
A gem not often visited due to its distance from Bratislava.
Miscellaneous: During our time in Kosice I used a free city map of the Tourist Information Centre. The map also included some basic information about Kosice and the sights.
The Tourist Information Centre also provides several other brochures both about Kosice and about other regions in Slovakia.
Kosice's Tourist Information Centre is located inside the Old Town Hall (Stara Radnica) at the Main street (Hlavna ulica 59).

The oldest Marathon in Europe and the second oldest in the world takes place in Kosice on every first Sunday in October. The history of the so called "Peace Marathon" dates back to 1924.
A statue of a marathon runner which lists all winners can be found at the Square of the Peace Marathon (Namestie Marathonu mieru) just opposite of the East Slovakian Museum.
