Small Athens, Little Vienna or Slovak Liverpool? These are only three of many nicknames my city has. Prešov has a unique atmosphere, specific history, but also signs of modern development. It is becoming a more and more popular and successful town every day. The city is located in the heart of the Šariš region and with its almost 90 000 inhabitants the third biggest city in Slovakia.
The uniqueness of the city is underlined by its history. The location allowed the fusion between eastern and western European cultures, as well as the settlement of several nations and ethnic groups. These have lived here side by side and formed Prešov, its economy, political and religious life and its culture.
On our walk we will start by the medieval city walls and the bastion, we will continue towards the very heart of the city – the Main street. We will discover the religions, crafts and trade life of medieval Prešov, and see the renaissance and baroque facades of the colourful houses. We will rediscover the place where the bloody “Prešov Butchery” took place. We will learn about the beer which is a huge part of the history and present of the town. And we will talk about the rebirth of the city in the 18th century when once wealthy Prešov was in such a pitiful condition that many thought it was lost. It took several centuries to put the city back on the map. But the Strawberry City is here and it is blooming. Our walk will finish by the theatre which will show us a tiny bit of modern architecture of today. Let’s go, come walk with me!
