Prešov is a city in Eastern Slovakia. It is a seat of the administrative Prešov Region (Prešovský kraj) and Šariš as well as the historic Szepes County of the Kingdom of Hungary. With a population of approximately 91,352, it is the third-largest city in Slovakia. It lends its name to the Eperjes-Tokaj Hill-Chain. There are many tourist attractions in Prešov such as castles, pools and the old town.EtymologyThe first written mention is from 1247 . Several authors tried to derive the name from eper - a strawberry. The theory was questioned in 1940s and newer Slovak works suggests a derivation from Slavic personal name Preš/Prešä and its later phonetic adaptation . Strawberries depicted on the coat of arms of Prešov are not necessarily determinative, the Latin name Fragopolis is only a modern translation.Other alternative names of the city include German: Eperies, Hungarian Eperjes, Latin Fragopolis, Polish Preszów, Romany Peryeshis, Russian Пряшев and Rusyn and Ukrainian Пряшів .
