The town of Michalovce (German: Großmichel, Hungarian: Nagymihály) is located in the eastern part of Slovakia, about 60 km east of Košice. Michalovce is a popular point for exploring the nearby Vihorlat Mountains, Vinné Castle ruins and the Zemplínska Sírava Lake.
The Sztáray Mansion of Michalovce was erected in the 17th century, using stones from the walls of a medieval castle on the same site, which had once belonged to the Nagymihályi family. The mansion was rebuilt in the Classicist style during the first-third of the 19th century. It is now the Zemplén Museum.
The town’s parish-church, which was erected during the 14th-15th centuries, was destroyed during the religious wars. It was rebuild in the baroque style; its altar is early-baroque. The bells date from 1436.
