Spissky Castle, Kosice Region

(4.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
A World Heritage Site perched atop a hill overlooking a mountain valley, Spissky Castle stands as one of the largest structures of its kind in the region. Originally constructed during the 12th century, the castle has changed hands many times and has also been the setting for many medieval-themed movies. Tour the historical fortress, now restored after centuries of disrepair and open to the public. Pass imposing stone walls and defensive towers as you make your way up to the bastion area built upon a rocky outcropping. Explore the museum to learn more about the castle's military history and see examples of weapons and other artifacts. Be sure to bring your camera to take advantage of the sweeping mountain views from the fortress hill. Plan your visit to Spissky Castle and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Levoca holiday planner.

  • It is certainly one of the most beautiful castles to visit both for its size and for the architecture and interiors. You can reach it from the parking lot but, for those interested, even directly from the town of Spisske Pohradie (where it is actually located) with a walk, although not short.

  • Unfortunately it is closed in winter and inside get failed. But walked around. The place is very beautiful. The castle is huge and you can see it from the road. Very beautiful and majestic

  • OMG! Amazing! Consider staying in town overnight, so you can see the castle lit up after dark. Incredible! I could see it from my accommodation. Magical!
  • Excellent.. A must do, if in the area. Free WiFi, and a great interpretive app available via Google Play. The best castle visit I've ever experienced.. And I've done a few..
  • Beautiful castes with interesting exposition and guided tours. Kids really liked the torturing equipment which you can try on yourself. Don't worry, no harm will be done to you. In good weather you can have beautiful views of High Tatras and surrounding area.
  • For people with good imagination. Most of the castle are walls today. System of the castle's defense was incredible and it was very hard to beat the castle in the past. Must see if you like history.
  • This is a must see. Unreal greatness. You can only imagine how powerful the rulers felt in this glorious castle. Beautiful views both from top of the castle and of castle itself from afar. Entry is 6eur for adult. Museum part was cool too.
