Lower Gate

The unique archaeological complex of the city fortification from the 13th century.

The Lower Gate (Dolná brána) is so named for the underground museum complex with original gateway to the city and parts of the original town fortifications which were established in the 2nd half of the 13th century. 

They were uncovered when the Hlavná ulica (Main Street) was being reconstructed in 1996. Today, thank to its unique atmosphere, the complex is now a place of exhibitions and the traditional Košice Wine Festival in September each year.
