Kosice, Slovakia is one of Mobile’s sister-cities. It is situated in the eastern end of country near Poland, Ukraine and Hungary. Kosice is the second largest city in Slovakia with a population of over 200.000. Kosice’s main street is a fascinating pedestrian area filled with beautiful central-European architecture and friendly people. The main employment opportunities of the area are as varied as agriculture and steel manufacturing.

The Mobile-Kosice Association maintains close ties with our counterpart organization in Kosice, sponsors cultural exchanges and supports a scholarship for a student from Kosice to attend the University of South Alabama. Recent exchanges have seen visits from Kosice’s Technical University choir, a group of puppeteers, policemen, businessmen, medical practitioners and social reformers.
