Košice

Jump to last reply

I'm just back from Košice - it was my first time there and there is so little about Slovakia on the board I thought I'd write of few lines.

I was there for a wedding so I didn't do the usual touristy things, but anyhow.

I flew with Sky Europe (Brussels - Vienna then Bratislava-Košice). Cheap and cheerful. Much better than Ryan Air and generous baggage allowances.

I stayed at the Golden Royal Hotel. It was very nice. Decent sized fully refurbished rooms with airco.

I stayed in one of the "extra" rooms - which seems bigger than the others.

Košice itself is small, but it's the second biggest city after Bratislava.

The centre of the town looks a bit like an Austrian provincial town. The outskirts of the town look very "blocky".

The town centre is very calm as the main street is completely pedestrianised.

The cathedral is impressive and worth a visit.

There is an outdoor swimming pool in the centre of town which is a good place to spend a few hours.

The food is generally the usual central/eastern European type. You won't be sending postcards home about it.

People are very friendly, though not a high level of English is spoken. Some people speak some German.
