Regulatory plans of the city of Kosice as we know them today were first being created at the end of World War I. The plans are bound to important political events such as changes in state formations, post war reconstruction, transition from capitalism to socialism, forced socialist industrialization and various forms of socialist establishment until its final collapse. New regulatory plans always reflected the current political situation and were often contradictory to their preceding plan. The northern part of the city, the Komensky street and its surroundings is one of the few areas, where all the periods of development can be seen. It is a mosaic of unfinished designs which despite being incomplete creates a harmonious whole. The study examines chronologically the development of the district according to citywide regulatory plans, documents the advancement of urban thinking, building typology as well as stylistic characteristics of architecture until the last decades of the century, when the area was finally built up.
