Founded in the 13th century, Kosice today is the second largest city in Slovakia featuring churches, cathedrals, and fortifications which speak to its roots as a center of activity during the Middle Ages. Some of its top attractions include the city's historical center, Singing Fountain, and Cathedral of Saint Elizabeth.
One medieval monument which steals the show as a centerpiece to the city is St Elizabeth's Cathedral, located at the core of the main pedestrian area at Hlavna. Built in the High Gothic style in the late 14th century, this cathedral is the country's largest with a capacity to hold more than 5,000 people. Near the cathedral, a few other historic landmarks include a 14th century cemetery chapel called St Michael's Chapel and an old bell tower known as St Urban's Tower. Additional sites of interest include the State Theatre which was built in a neo-baroque design during the late 19th century (with a singing fountain located out front), the baroque Immaculata Statue which commemorates the plague from 1710-11, and the palaces of Kosice of which there is the highest number in all of Slovakia.

Some of these palaces include the Former Town Hall, the Andrassy's Palace, The Bishop's Palace, the Hadik-Barkoczy Palace, the Pongracz-Forgacs' Palace, the Csaky - Dessewffy Palace, the Captain's Palace, and Jacob's Palace. Today, each structure houses an assortment of businesses from Kosice's council offices to the largest cafeteria and patisserie, the seat of the Regional State Library to Kosice's biggest bookstore where patrons can find books in a number of different languages, including Slovak, English, Hungarian, German, and others.

There are also a number of museums and galleries which give further insight into the history, art, and culture of the city. One of the most important is the East Slovak Museum, established in 1872, which spans a number of buildings which are architecturally historic and house both permanent and temporary exhibitions.
A central hub for activity in Kosice is the main pedestrian street, known as Hlavna ulica (or Main Street). Located at the heart of the city, it is the biggest historical area in Slovakia, where visitors can find most of the sought-after attractions. Historically an old medieval square, this main area is the seed from which the city first blossomed. Today there is still an abundance of medieval architecture. Other popular locations in Kosice include Namestie Maratonu Mieru or Peace Marathon Square at the north end of Hlavna and Namestie Osloboditel'ov or Square of the liberators at the southern end of Hlavna.
