If you find yourself perusing a list of churches and cathedrals in Slovakia, St. Elizabeth’s Cathedral in Košice is likely going to feature rather heavily. The largest church in the country and the easternmost Gothic cathedral in Slovakia, this is numero uno attraction in this quite magnificent city. Completed in 1508, it took a whopping 130 years to build but it isn’t difficult to see why. The exterior is magnificently detailed, all intricate vaults and Gothic spires giving it the look of a Gothic cathedral in its most developed form, but the true magic awaits inside. More than 10 altars dot the inside of this beaut, the main altar itself consisting of 48 complicated paintings that move through three cycles to create one fantastic whole. This is the number one attraction in the city and for good reason.
