Social activities

Saturday 4th October - White Night/Nuit Blanche

biela_noc.jpg, 13kBWhite Night/Nuit Blanche is an international arts project, materialising the desire to rediscover the urban environment which, thanks to art, reaches another dimension. During the night the city changes into an interactive space and its usual night cycle ceases to exist for several hours. Musical and light installations will breathe life into the city night and the night becomes white. Cultural and public spaces open their doors to visitors and prepare an unusual artistic experience for them. Since 2002, the project has received great interest from audiences around the world. Over several years, the project has spread from Paris to other large cities - New York, Los Angeles, Rome, Madrid and Toronto. This list has also included Košice since 2010.

Sunday 5th October - Košice Peace Marathon

maraton_ke.jpg, 22kB For many decades up to now, autumn in Kosice bears witness to an event which over the course of time has become an integral phenomenon of life in this historical metropolis. The word marathon has been heard in this area since 1924, when 8 brave souls, inspired by the olympic marathon in Paris were sent off by Vojtech Bukovsky, founder of the Kosice marathon, on their first great adventure. Today this marathon, the most massive, and one of the most significant events in Slovakia takes proud in the attribute of being the oldest marathon in Europe - only the Boston marathon in America has written more years into its annals among the continually organized marathons.
