As I have already mentioned, Košice is the European City of Sport for 2016, but even without this prestigious title it has been for a long time a real place for sports. By award of this title we would like to show the whole Europe that our city makes sport activities all year long, and it is full of sport and physical activities. Our goal is to attract as many Košice citizens as possible to sports, physical activities and healthy life style this year and the following periods also. We would like to get back to sports those people, too who have stopped to do sport activities for some reasons.
