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.

  • Košice Cathedral is the largest temple in Slovakia. It was built in the Gothic style, devoted to St. Elisabeth of Hungary. It is impresses with beauty both from outside and inside. Impressive is an altar made entirely of steel (apparently the only one in Europe), organs, curly, double staircase, one of the five such gothic staircases in Europe. (Others are in: Graz, Hungary (Segesvár, Cluj-Napoca and Prague). It is also worth to climb to believe where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city and the surrounding area and where to look at the colourful mosaic on the roof of the cathedral.

  • Highly recommend to visit the tower. Some 2 Euros and you get the feeling how people moved through the floors in old ages. And picturesque views from the top.
  • One of the most visiting places in Kosice. I recommend to visit also observatory for 2 euros or so. There is no lift, only hundred of stairs.
