As visitors come out of the East Slovak Gallery (Župný dom - Shire Hall), they enter into a small park. At the front there is a bronze statue of the Košice City Coat-of-Arms, the oldest and first ever municipal coat-of-arms in Europe from 1369!

The beautiful angel with heraldic attributes spreads out its angel wings and as the protector holds the Košice City Coat-of-Arms in its hands.
