Reader Feedback: Is Košice in Slovakia?

The Slovak Spectator is a great newspaper for people such as me who live in Slovakia, but don't speak Slovak. I've read every issue since June, but sometimes I wonder if Košice is in Slovakia!

The culture page is always filled with Bratislava movies, concerts, restaurant reviews, and events.

I can't remember the last time a Košice event was listed (the last three issues have none).

Maybe nothing happens in Košice?

I know that's not true, because the state theatre here has an opera or play almost every day.

The state philharmonic has a couple of events every week. And of course we have many movies, museums and restaurants. How about some culture page coverage of Slovakia's second-largest city?
