Often called the ‘hidden gem’ of Europe, you will find Košice has much to offer. Košice is nestled between six UNESCO World Heritage Sites, four national parks, the Tatra mountains, and the world-famous Tokaj wine region. It is the economic and cultural centre of Eastern Slovakia.
Košice was named the European Capital of Culture in 2013 and is the seat of three universities, many museums, galleries, and theatres.
With a population of approximately 240,000, Košice is the second largest city in Slovakia. That makes it big enough for a lot of fun and small enough to easily meet up with friends.
The town has extensive railway connections and an international airport with frequent flights available to European and worldwide destinations.
Košice became the 2016 European City of Sport awarded by the European Capitals of Sports Association (ACES Europe). As a result, it has fantastic sporting facilities. It also hosts the oldest annual marathon in Europe called the Peace Marathon since 1924.
