Prešov is a city in eastern Slovakia. It is the seat of the administrative Prešov Region. With a population of approximately 91,000, it is the third-largest city in the country. The city is a showcase of Baroque, Rococo and Gothic architecture. In the historical center, the main street is lined with churches and other buildings built in these styles. In the suburbs, however, the Soviet influence is clearly evident through the massive concrete apartment buildings of the Sídliská (housing estates) and the Sekčov district. More Soviet-style architecture is seen in the government buildings near the city center.

Many concerts, operas, operettas and stage plays are performed at the new building of the Jonáš Záborský Theatre, as well as at the older theatre locations. The city and the region are contenders for European Capital of Culture 2013.
