6. Obišovce

Obišovce lies in the northern foothills of the Košice basin near the inflow of the Svinka stream into the Hornád River. On the Zámčisko rise are the remains of a castle from the 13th century. The Classicist Roman Catholic church from the 16th century on top of Putnok hill is a well-known place of pilgrimage of the Košice Archbishopric, and in 2011 was declared as a diocese sanctuary. On the first Sunday of October each year, a diocese-wide pilgrimage takes place here. The Roman Catholic congregation gathers volunteers from the ranks of citizens and youth. The Lutheran church congregation also does excellent work with young people in the village, which has a great share in promoting the village. The Union of Women Slovakia and the Slovakia Red Cross both operate in the village.

Known personalities are honoured citizens of the village / writer and former Evangelic pastor Ladislav Fričovský and Slovak paralympian Martin Ludrovský, holder of the gold medal in table tennis in the team competitions from London 2012. A beekeeper and honey producer also operates in the village. The village publishes the newspaper “Obišovce – village events and  information from local government”.

Reconstruction of the Funeral Home was carried out in the village (2008, own resources); the railway stop (94) was shifted into the village lands (2009) in the scope of the village development programme;  local roads were reconstructed (2010) and the project Sluicing away of rain Water (2013, Envirofond SR) is planned;  this is a continuation of a years-long acute solution of anti -flood protection of the village lands, including reconstruction of a bridge. A vision for the village is the building of a public water main.
