The University Church, or the Church of the Holy Trinity, is one of the most decoratively styled churches in the city. Inspired by the baroque Church of the Gesù in Rome and completed in 1681, it was originally built by the Jesuits before being taken over by the Premonstratesians in 1811.
They still use the church today. The church owes its name, the University Church, to the first university in Košice which was built next door in the 17th century.
