Kosice is a beautiful Central European town and despite being the second largest agglomeration in Slovakia with approximately half a million inhabitants it gives the visitor an impression of being quaint and easy going. The only attraction is the elongated town square with its delicate mansions and singing fountain. This said, I spent an entire morning there and would have been happy to stay there longer. Whether the special layout of the central square merits a WHS inscription is a different matter altogether.
