State Theatre Košice - logoThe current home of the State Theatre of Košice dates from 1899. The work of architect Adolf Lang, the Neo-Baroque main building (Historická budova) ranks as one of the most beautiful theatres in Europe. The interior of theatre is richly decorated with plaster ornaments and the stage is lyre-shaped. The ceiling is decorated with scenes from William Shakespeare's tragedies Othello, Romeo and Juliet, King Lear and A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The main building incorporates a 610-seat opera house, while the nearby Little Stage (Malá scéna) has 200 seats.
