State Theater

Stunning neo-Baroque building from 19th century, one of the most beautiful monuments of Košice

Taking a stroll around the fountain, visitors will come across the impressive entrance to the State Theater building designed by architect Adolf Lang. The theater put on its first performance back in 1899. 

In additon to the eclectic exterior with neo-Baroque and Art Nouveau elements, visitors will be enthralled by the rippled interior in the shape of a harp, beautiful components of Art Nouveau and scenes on the ceiling from the plays of world-renowned playwright William Shakespeare, created by Peregrin von Gastgeb from Vienna.
