MICHALOVCE - THE TOWN
Michalovce – the modern heart of Zemplin is the economic, administrative and cultural centre of lower Zemplín. The first inhabitants of the area settled on the banks of the River Laborec more than 7 thousand years ago. The strategic position of the town led to the establishment of traditional and classical crafts, trade and, later, industries such as clothing, construction, ceramics, engineering, electronics and food production.Cultural life is built around the regional and town cultural centres, the Zemplín Museum, the observatory, the library and the local branch of the Matica Slovenská organization. The new, reconstructed pedestrian area in the town centre with its singing fountain attraction has become the natural focal point of the town. Regular cultural and social events make a pleasant charge from routine: The Zemplín festival of song and dance, the carnival festivities, the Podvihorlatský marathon, the Municipal Spring Prize for show jumping and many other events large and small throughout the year appeal not only to local inhabitants. The seasonal markets in spring, summer and winter have rich accompanying programmes.
Michalovce has been known as a destination for tourism and recreational activities since the 1980s. Zemplínska šírava is the largest lake in Slovakia and its position gives it a unique climate. It is famous for having the largest annual number of sunny and tropical days.
