Gerster's House

Birthplace of the designer of the Corinth Canal

The name of this Košice native will mean nothing to many people, but we might recognise the names of his works from geography lessons. Just a short distance from the exit from the underground museum you can witness the statue of Košice-born engineer Béla Gerster – designer of well-known ship-ways, canals and railways, including the Panama Canal or the Corinth Canal.
