Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands finished her three-day visit to Slovakia with a trip to Košice on May 23.
The Dutch queen is the third monarch to visit Košice since 1990. She began with a visit to the historical City Hall, where mayor František Knapík presented her with a copy of the city's coat-of-arms, which dates back to 1369 and claims to be the oldest in Europe.
Queen Beatrix also visited the so-called Green School in Družstevná pri Hornáde, which specialises in environmental education.
The queen also visited the Music Conservatory in Košice before flying back home from the Košice airport.
