The town's main square

Szojko's Gate

The copy of the wooden gate was issued in 1996. It is placed located in a park by the church of the Reformed Church on the Main St. in front of the house num. 33. Its original is placed in the yard of the East Slovak Museum in Košice. It commemorates the year 1795 when the town was on fire once again. The 5000 volume library burnt down; churches lost their roofs either their bells melted. Many people became victims of this fire. Only the gate protected itself from the flames. Therefore, there was a Latin inscription carved on it saying: "I was burning in a flame and yet all remained…"
