The city of Prešov is the third largest city in Slovakia. It is the only city in Slovakia through which the 49th parallel passes. Prešov is a city of many epithets, e. g. Athens on the Torysa, The Slovak Seattle, or Little Vienna, but the people are what make this city so beautiful.

Together, let yourself wander through the old alleys, squares and parks, breathing in the rich history of this city while thinking back to the fateful events of centuries past. You can explore the historical centre, enjoy a refreshing cup of coffee right in the city square, or sip on hot mead at the Christmas market under romantic street lights.

As a part of the Šariš region, the city of Prešov is also rich in traditional folk art. The preserved arts of our forefathers include pottery, basket-making, artistic wood-carving, embroidery, and saltmine lace. Another very popular way of preserving traditional art forms is dancing and singing, both of which are pursued by artistic and folk groups.

In any season of the year, the atmosphere in Prešov breathes friendliness and relaxation, since Prešov offers numerous leisure opportunities not only right in the centre, but also in the surroundings and the wider area.
