Initially donning the role of a Jesuit Church, the Premonstratensian church in Kosice, Slovakia is the most precious Baroque object of the town of Kosice, as it is particularly known for the splendorous interiors.

The Premonstratensian is but a Christian religious order belonging to Canons Regular that had been founded at Premontre found near Laon in the year 1120. During the Middle Ages, the site pertaining to this present church had been occupied by the Royal House, which had been a seat belonging to the Royal Chamber.

A dwelling had been established at this place by Captain Andrew Doczi, as a chapel for Jesuits had also been established at the Protestant town at the dawn of Recatholization. The Premonstratensian church at Kosice had been erected during the end of the 17th century, as the baroque building went under the control of Premonstratensian order during the year 1811. Also, the year 1619 witnessed the torturous death of Jesuit saints at this place that had been perpetrated by soldiers belonging to George I Rakoczi.

The monastery building had also stood up as the king’s dwelling during the 15th century. It was also used as a school later. As of today, the Premonstratensian church is consecrated to that of the Holy Trinity, and is an interesting attraction in the city.
