Kosice (Point A on the map)
Košice is home to the oldest marathon in Europe, it boasts the largest heritage reservation in Slovakia, as well as the largest and most important gold treasure in Europe, but most importantly, it is a city where life is lived and enjoyed.
So come and sample a tasty coffee or the cocktail Košické zlato (Košice gold) at one of the street cafes on a Friday evening, when the people of Košiče take to the streets and bars of the Old Town centre, or why not visit the Východoslovenské Múzeum (East Slovak Museum) and admire the gold treasure (and secretly wish that you had discovered it), soak up the tropical atmosphere of the Botanical Gardens or just enjoy a stroll around the old streets of the city and drop into a restaurant or bar for a glass of excellent Slovak wine or some local delicacy.
One of the Wooden Churches - (Point C on the map)
The Wooden Churches of the Slovak part of Carpathian Mountain Area inscribed on the World Heritage List consist of two Roman Catholic, three Protestant and three Greek Orthodox churches built between the 16th and 18th centuries. The property presents good examples of a rich local tradition of religious architecture, marked by the meeting of Latin and Byzantine cultures. The edifices exhibit some typological variations in their floor plans, interior spaces and external appearance due to their respective religious practices. They bear testimony to the development of major architectural and artistic trends during the period of construction and to their interpretation and adaptation to a specific geographical and cultural context. Interiors are decorated with paintings on the walls and ceilings and other works of art that enrich the cultural significance of the properties.
