Spis Castle

Spišský Hrad (Spiš Castle) has three major claims to fame: It is one of the biggest castle ruins (some say the biggest) in Central Europe Slovakia’s proudest UNESCO World Heritage Site and a top destination my favorite castle in Slovakia because it’s both spectacular and brings back fond memories of frequent visits on school and family trips. The 12th-century castle sits atop a travertine hill. First a border fortress, then expanded several times, particularly in the 14th century, it was a longtime power center of the rich Spiš region. One of the Hungarian kings was born here. After a big fire destroyed it in 1780, Spiš Castle fell into ruin until the 1970s conservation. The museum located here showcases the castle’s history, historic weaponry, and feudal justice practices. Night tours are very popular, and reenactments and performances draw big summer crowds.
