Slovakia Tourist Traps: 26 reviews and 15 photos


Spisský hrad
Spisský hrad (Zipser Burg) is the largest castle in Slovakia. The castle was founded in 1209, wrecked by theTatars in the 13th century and reconstructed in the 15th century. Although the castle burnt down in 1780, the ruins and the site are spectacular. The highest enclosure contains a round Gothic tower, a cistern, a chapel and a rectangular Romanesque palace perched over the abyss. Instruments of torture are exhibited in the dungeon. The 12th-century town of Spisské Podhradie is below the castle; it's accessible via the main line from Poprad to Kosice.
