Hlavné Nám

Square in Košice

Much of Košice's finery is assembled along Hlavná, a long plaza lined with floral gardens, and flanked with cafes on either side. Stroll past the central musical fountain to hear its hourly chimes, across from the 1899 State Theatre. Look for the turn-of-the-20th-century, art nouveau Hotel Slávia at No 63. Shire Hall (1779), crowned with a coat of arms, is today home to the East Slovak Gallery.
