Kosice is situated right at the heart of the region of East Slovakia. Kosice has its own international airport, rail connections direct from all Central European capitals (Bratislava, Prague, Budapest, Vienna), and it is connected up to the main European road and motorway networks.

The international airport in Kosice is just 6 kilometres south of the city centre. There are regular flight connections with the Slovak capital city Bratislava (CSA) and international air connections with Prague (CSA), Vienna (Austrian), Warsaw (LOT), London/Luton (Wizz), Doncaster/Sheffield (Wizz), Bristol (Wizz), Istanbul (Turkish) and Kiev (CSA).
