Prešov is a delightful surprise. Tucked away in northeastern Slovakia, this unassuming city has a lot to offer.
Its main square is an open-air museum of medieval and baroque architecture, with its landmark Šariš Castle dominating the skyline. Visit the 16th-century Greek Catholic Cathedral with its beautiful frescoes, or explore the old town’s narrow cobblestone streets. Stop off at one of the city’s many cafes and sample some of the local specialties such as the cake-like koláče. And don’t forget to check out the city’s one-of-a-kind open-air museum, a collection of traditional wooden houses, churches, and barns that offer a unique glimpse into the traditional life of the region.
