An important attraction of Košice is the Tower of King Sigismund - the northern tower of St. Elizabeth's Cathedral. Its height is 59 meters and to climb to the top of this tower, you must overcome a steep spiral staircase of 160 steps. At the top of the tower is an observation deck, from which a wonderful view of the city streets opens.
One of the most beautiful architectural monuments of the city is the building of the Old Town Hall. It was built in the late 18th century and represents a unique combination of two styles - Baroque and Classicism. Like many years ago, the building amazes with a beautiful finish of its facade; it retains skillful balustrades and columns in antique style.
On the historic street of Hlavná is a symbolic monument – Plague Column. The epidemic of plague hit the city in 1709 and claimed the lives of hundreds of people. In memory of this tragic event it was decided to mount a sculpture on the square, the main element of which is the figure of the Virgin Mary.
One of the most unusual city attractions is the House of the Beggar - a notable building of the 14th century, with which many interesting legends are associated.
