The most mesmerising of the incredible selection of Art Nouveau buildings that Kosice boasts. The colour of the roof and the external features are just so impressive. Cross the bridge to see it from the other side of the river as well. Don't miss it.

Came across the Jakabov Palace whilst wandering around this beautiful city. Reminded us of the palace in Disneyland Florida except this was real! Disappointed we couldn't see inside so spent 10/15 minutes wandering around it and enjoying the architecture.

This was the first interesting building I came to while walking from the park and an impressive introduction to Kosice old town. It looks like it should belong in the hills instead of in the town.
