Almost all monuments of Košice are concentrated in the historical core of the town, size of which makes it the biggest Town Monument Reserve of Slovakia. The spindle-shaped Hlavné námestie square of Košice is the heart of the town and rightly considered one of the most beautiful squares in Slovakia. It is closed to traffic and skirted by numerous wonderful historical buildings. The most valuable monuments are situated in its centre.
The area between the Cathedral and the theatre is a very lively place above all in summer. Its main attraction is the font with music.
The State Theatre, Košice (Slovak: Štátne divadlo Košice) is situated in the centre of Košice, Slovakia.
The representative building of the State Theatre was built in a Neo-baroque style according to projects of Adolf Lang during the years 1879-1899.
The interior of theatre is richly decorated with plaster ornaments, the stage is lyre-shaped. The ceiling of the building is decorated with scenes from William Shakespeare's tragedies Othello, Romeo and Juliet, King Lear and A Midsummer Night's Dream.

You've framed nicely the square leading the viewer, with a nice perpective, to the edifice well illuminated, under a fine blue sky.

A very good perspective with good lead lines provided by the red path and the repeating motifs of the lamp standards on one side and the benches on the other. Very good colours and clarity.

Your POV is great using the path to create lead lines for the shot. The trees frame the theatre nicely while the lamp posts provide a nice repeating pattern. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail.

Hi George, You managed to choose some great positions in which to stand when taking a photo, the line of old lamps leading to that amazing Theatre helps to catch the eye, the two large trees stand nicely to attention guarding this great architecture, light, colours & sharpness all superb as usual, again TFS, kind regards Wilson.

Walking path in park is leading us perfectly to The State Theatre while creating good depth. Street lights are increase perspective view with colored parts on ground too. Trees in green and leafless are creates very nice combination. Perfect details on photo and notes as usual with all natural colors, congratulations.

Nice composition. Perhaps I'd have chosen a vertical approach here, positioning the first lamppost on the right edge of the pic. Beautiful shot though.
