The former Jesuitesīchurch, 17th century, built in the monumental forms of early baroque typical for the region:



















Franciscansī church, originally a 14th century gothic building, but like many medieval churches on the territory of the Austro-Hungarian empire renovated in baroque forms in 18th century:

Kosice, Slovakia (Part II)

Today mostly pictures of neighbourhoods outside the historic core of Kosice. It is interesting that in Kosice, the belt of historistic late 19th century neighbourhoods around the old town which is in most European cities much, much larger than the old town itself is pretty small in Kosice - when youīre leaving the inner core, there are only a few streets with 19th century architecture, and in most of them I found rather early 19th century suburbian architecture than late 19th century bourgeois buildings. Itīs just a walk of a few minutes from the old town to the modern commieblock neighbourhoods in which most of Kosiceīs population lives. Of course these areas are not overwhelmingly beautiful but I found that most of the residential buildings are kept in a good condition, and many of them seem to be recently renovated. The atmosphre is quite clean and secure - I really canīt agree with some travel reports in which Kosice is being described as a very shabby and insecure place.









View into the Franciscansī church:

I need to visit Bratislava soon. It's such a shame I've never been there considering the fact, that I live just a stone's throw away.

In the train from Kosice to Lviv


From Kosice, I continued my travel with the daily night train to Moscow, coming from Budapest and stopping in Lviv. But, at least for such a short distance, this is really recommendable only for hardcore rail enthusiastics: For the 240km from Kosice to Lviv, the train needs unbelievable 13,5 hours, driving extremely slow and stopping for hours at the Slovakian-Ukrainian border. But at least you have enough time to watch the beautiful green forest landscapes of Western Ukraine passing by. Here some pictures I took from the train after it had become bright enough in the morning:
