Description

At the corner of Mlynská and Štefánikova streets in Košice, there is a beautiful historic building built in the neo-Gothic style. It is the Jacob's Palace, also known as Dzivák's Palace. This architectural gem, which attracts the views of passers-by, was built between 1899 and 1903 by the designer Ing. Arpád of Jacob, after which the palace also bears its name.

Jakob's palace is like cut out of a fairy-tale book and in the past, the surroundings of the palace seemed extremely idyllic as it stood in a quiet part on the bank of the mill drive. Today, unfortunately, it stands on the edge of a busy four-lane road.

The palace was built to commemorate King Matthias Corvinus, as evidenced by a plaque placed on the left of the main entrance gate. In the construction of the palace, even discarded stone parts from the Cathedral of St. Elizabeth were used.

In 1945, the President of Czecho-Slovakia was seated in the Jakab's palace. Edvard Beneš, which also declares a plaque, which is placed on one of the walls of Jakab's palace. Jakab's palace is now administered by the city of Kosice and the building is not used and is not accessible to the public.
