The best-known historical monuments are to be found in the second largest city of Slovakia, in Košice. Košice is the first european city, which obtained its own armorial list. Another primacy is connected with sports. The International Marathon of Peace, as the oldest in Europe, is held here every year, always the first Sunday in October. In the cetre of the town you can find the biggest Town Monument Reservation in Slovakia. Its most dominating building construction is the St. Elizabeth's Cathedral. This Gothic Cathedral has a beautiful main altar, which consists of 48 Gothic paintings and statues. St. Elizabeth's Cathedral is also the easternmost Gothic cathedral in Europe. Together with neighbouring St. Michael chapel and the Urban's tower they create a complex of National cultural monument. North-west from the city you will find the remains of Košický castle. Only by the architectonic remains we can guess, how was the castle built into the rocky landscape. Košice castle and St. Elizabeth's cathedral are just only some of the many, historically interesting buildings, which you will pass as you walk through this magnificent city.
