This imposing 12th-century fortress was one of the few Castles that resisted the Mongol attacks of 1241, gradually enlarged over the centuries and destroyed by fire in 1780.
This castle seems to be worth a drive (and small climb) to see it. Also the view from the top of the castle is very nice. A place to enjoy a few hours. It may be a bit difficult to climb inside the castle- so take this into consideration.

Ponte di pietra, piuttosto antico, che si trova lungo la statale a Spišský Hrhov. . Nonostante risalga a molti anni fa, e quindi non certo per mezzi pesanti, è ancora utilizzabile. Si può fare una passeggiata proprio sotto lungo una passerella dove ci sono alcune sculture in legna. Interessante.

The Levoca town has this historical and old charm that is difficult to describe. We simply felt in love with the town. The City Hall is the crown of the main square, but the rest of the buildings are also very beautiful. When we were there, a few local art craft booth were selling their products.

Place was added to the UNESCO list along sodę nearby castle. From my opinion IT was some political push to make the foty somehow more turist atractive. The church architecture is not atractive and os Open in weird houres including siesta (10-13 przez somewhat). Three od no parking place at all.

This UNESCO-listed historic church, the Church of the Holy Spirit, is not far (4km) from the Spiš castle - the church is very small in comparison to the giant castle but fascinating in its own right. It was built in the 13th century and overlooks a small village; a few extensions, in varying architectural styles, have been added during the subsequent centuries. The interior walls are covered by rare Gothic frescoes, which attract hundreds of visitors each year. On the northern wall of the nave, are two frescoes from the second half of the 14th century: a Pieta (the Seven Sufferings), and the more famous Arbor vitae (Tree of Life), The latter is a typical example of the "Bibliae pauperum" (the Paupers' Holy Scripture). The frescoes are well preserved because the whole interior surface of the church was whitewashed at the time of the plague epidemic in 1646; for this reason, the frescoes were only discovered about 150 years ago. Part of the frescoes were uncovered in 1870 and then a number of 100 years older frescoes were revealed underneath, in the 1950s, at the expense, though, of the more recent ones. The furniture is sparse but authentic, which recalls a less embellished bygone era – the large wooden dome is from the 17th century, and looks a little too big. But a calming atmosphere.

Right in the middle of the town, this is one of top attractions of Levoca, the other being the old town hall. Second biggest church in Slovakia, with impressive tower. Visiting in two stages. Stage one: opposite main entry to the church there's a new town hall, where you buy your tickets to see St. Jacob's church inside - photos forbiden. Stage two: on the other side of the church, in old town hall there's tourist information office, where you buy your tickets to climb the church tower. Both stages on guided tours only (Slovakian language only), both on the hour every hour (roughly), both highly recommended, the church hosts tallest in the world wooden altar, made by Master Paul of Levoča, while the tower provides fantastic views over the whole area, and towards high Tatra Mountains - the tower is the tallest building visible.

До Второй Мировой войны в Спишске-Подградье была большая еврейская диаспора. На сегодняшний день евреев в городе почти нет, и синагога здесь больше не действует. Несмотря на это, здание было недавно отреставрировано и в нем проводятся различные культурные мероприятия. Имеются планы разместить тут экспозицию на еврейскую тематику.

Main church of Spišske Podhradie is a large but very simple building. Plain facade without decorations and also elegant but simple interior.
