Only on an event such as the celebration of the Days of the Town of Rožňava it is possible to witness such cultural program as offered by the symbolic birthday of Rožňava.

What actually constitutes the symbolism of the town's founding?

The oldest written record of Rožňava is the donation deed, whereby the Hungarian King Andrew III donated the territory of Rožňava, referred to as Rosnoubana in the document, to Ladomér – Archbishop of Esztergom. The date on this certificate reads February 3, 1291. In 1995 the municipality of the town decided to consider this date to be the symbolic birthday of the town. Thus, the Days of the town of Rožňava are held annually.

The Days of the Town are open yearly by the International Ballroom Dance Competition – The Slovak Cup.

The celebration of the Days of the Town is always filled with a rich and varied cultural program for children, the youth and all inhabitants, like for example the announcement of the previous year's most successful sportsperson or sports team, the ceremony of awarding the highest town honours and many others, such as exhibitionssportingcultural and social eventstheatrical performances and folklore ensemble shows, or the Carnival on Ice.
