Old Town KošiceWhere to Stay in Košice for First Timers

Also known as Stare Mesto, Old Town Košice is the best area for tourists visiting for the first time, and for those who only have a few days to see the highlights. At the city center, you’ll find a preserved medieval town in the midst of a more modern city.

This is where you’ll find most of the best things to do in Košice, including the singing fountain, Jakab’s Palace, and the Sculpture Immaculata, a monument celebrating the end of the plague in the late 18th century. For aerial views over Košice, you must climb the bell tower at St. Elizabeth’s Cathedral.

Kosice International Airport – Where to Stay in Košice near the Airport

The Košice International  Airport is located about ten kilometers south of the city center. For business travelers and those with early morning or late night flights into Košice. There are few activities of interest out this way, but you can easily reach Old Town in 15 minutes by car or 30 minutes by public transportation, so it’s not entirely inconvenient to stay here.

Bear in mind you will need to travel to see any Košice attractions, however, you can find a good home base here from which to explore eastern Europe on low-cost carriers.
