Saint Elisabeth Cathedral

Local nameDóm svätej Alžbety
LocationKošice, Slovakia

The Cathedral of St Elisabeth is a Gothic cathedral in Košice.

It is Slovakia's largest church and one of the easternmost Gothic cathedrals in Europe.The record of the existence of Kassa, dating from 1230, is connected with the existence of the rectory church. In the process of the settlement's transformation from a rural community into a town, all its periods of successes and failures have been reflected in St Elisabeth's Cathedral.

According to historical and archaeological sources, the present-day cathedral was built on the place of an earlier church also consecrated to St Elisabeth of Hungary. It was referred to in documents of 1283 and 1290, in which the bishop of Eger Andrew II exempted Košice parish from the dean's sphere of jurisdiction.
