Spiss Castle, Slovakia


posted on 3rd of july, 2013

How many of you have heard about this medieval jewel, located in the heart of Slovakia?

I had the chance to visit the ruins of Spiss Castle earlier this year and I have to say that I was positively impressed. And the view from the top is amazing!

If you're visiting Kosice (which is one of the European Capitals of Culture 2013), take a small detour to visit Spiss Castle as well!



And some more images to be found in my portfolio :)

Yes, I knew it is one of the biggest European castles! :)

I was in Slovakia just for one weekend to visit Kosice and took a small detour for half a day to Spiss Castle. I'd love to go back there again and visit one of the villages you mentioned! Hopefully soon :)

Yes, Spis castle (Slovak: Spišský hrad) is really one of most beautiful castle ruins in Slovakia!
Did you know that it is one of the biggest European castles by area (41 426 m2)!?

If you will be here don’t forget to visit also other castles, historical towns and open-air museums. Slovakia is just a small country in the heart of Europe by its area, but it is full of cultural heritage and history open to explore, with more than 700 castles, chateaux and manor houses! And don’t forget to visit authentic open-air museums (Slovak: Skanzeny), real historical villages authentically showing typical folk architecture of Slovak rural communities and their life-style in the past.

Thanks for your comments!
