Zemplín is located in the most eastern strip of Slovakia. A poor grain-producing region, it was also known for its Tokay wines. Michalovce is one of only a few towns in the region. Michalovce has always been known for its markets and also for an excellent school. Even though it is far from the centre of Slovak culture, Michalovce's excellent Latin school dates all the way back to the 15th century.

This card depicts the town from the period after the First World War, and shows how spacious the main street looked in the period before cars.
