Favorite thing: Keep an eye out as you stroll through the city for the various monuments, statues and other markers to the city's past, to Slovakia as a nation and to it's heroes.

Little monuments were all over Kosice, markers on buildings indicating this or that event or national hero. Remember, Kosice is where the first government of Czechoslovakia was formed as the Second World War came to an end, so it's bound to be a proud city.

I would have loved to have known what some of these things marked, but again, my non-existent Slovak put a stop to any in-depth cultural exchange!

Fondest memory: These types of statues for me are actually a style I really like, although for some they represent a communist past that may less savoury.

This particular statue was in the park on the way from Hlavna Ulici to the train station.
