St Elizabeth's Cathedral (Dom Svatej Alzbety), Kosice

4.8
Slovakia's largest church, St Elizabeth's Cathedral (Dom Svatej Alzbety) also serves as the town's premier landmark. Today the structure displays many different aspects of its mixed architectural heritage, thanks to a number of add-ons and restorations. Enter the 14th-century cathedral and get an up-close look at the interior double-spiral staircase, a rarity in terms of construction. Wander the inner sections of the building, passing intricate frescoes and sculptures as you go. Make sure to stop by the altar of St. Elisabeth backed by an ornate glass window and vaulted ceilings. Climb 60 m (197 ft) to the top of the bell tower for a panoramic view over the city and surrounding hills. Our Kosice trip site makes visiting St Elizabeth's Cathedral (Dom Svatej Alzbety) and other Kosice attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • One of those old cathedrals, which is truly the highlight of Kosice's high street. It is open during the day, so you can just walk in and admire the architecture. Please be considerate as there are always people praying or just having a quiet moment. On certain days you can go up to the tower and have a good look at the city from above.
  • A sacred place. You must to see it. Gothic. Best structure in Kosice
