University church (originally Jesuit)
ImageThe Baroque jewel of the historical centre of Košice was built in 1681 and dedicated to the Holy Trinity. A cruel story is connected with the church. At the location of the building Juraj I. Rákoczi’s soldiers tortured and killed three Jesuits as a reaction to the re-catholicization. The Rákoczi family built a church at that location to avoid the divine retribution. Jesuits have built schools around the church and the first university in Košice has been established here as well, which also gave the church its name.
