Largest historical centre in Slovakia. It is in very good shape, with food culture growing nowadays with dominant St Elisabeth Cathedral and State Theatre Košice in the central part of centre. Takes 1 hour of walk and sightseeing.

The centre is lined with history, eating and drinking places. However the centre goes quiet after 10 pm. For bars and loud music you have to go out 3-4 streets from the centre.
