Kosice Off The Beaten Path: 12 reviews and 18 photos
Kosice's Orthodox synagogue (Ortodoxna synagoga) was constructed between 1926 and 1927 after designs of the Christian architect Ludovit Oelschlager. It has a capacity of 800 seats and is also home to a school.
At the front of the synagogue a Holocaust memorial plate can be found. It commemorates the 12.000 Jews of Kosice who were taken to concentration camps in WWII.
The Orthodox synagogue is located at Puskinova Street, just outside the southeastern end of Kosices historic city centre.
Soviet War Memorial
When wandering around Kosice I found by chance a Soviet War Memorial, which pays tribute to the fallen Soviet soldiers during WWII.
Although Slovakia hasn't belonged to the East-bloc countries since the early 1990's when it was part of Czechoslovakia, you can still find hammer and sickle symbols at the Soveit War Memorial. Surprisingly enough the memorial was very clean and not damaged by vandals.
When leaving Kosice's historic city centre to the south via Hlavna Street, the the Soviet War Memorial is situated on the left side of the first big traffic intersection.
