Košice

Statue of the Marathon Runner

  Staré Mesto     01 Aug 2019
Did you know that Košice is home to the oldest marathon in Europe? No? You do now! If you’re a fan of running 26.2 miles by choice then Košice is a must-visit on the continent, and the city’s tradition of running for a bloomin’ long time is honoured with this little statue in the old town. It was created by Arpád Račko, the Slovak sculptor responsible for a host of statues around the region.
