Beggars House

  Hlavná 71     more than a year ago
It doesn’t sound particularly inviting, but be sure to give the Beggars House in Košice a good look. Another excellent piece of architecture in a city full of the stuff, this Art Nouveau was supposedly built with the alms collected by a beggar back in the day, a far cry from the reality of beggars today. The statue on the roof is the highlight, as a cheery man doffs his cap at all the suckers who helped finance his stately home. The humour may be a little dark for some (not for us), but the building itself is a cracker.
