Spissky Castle, Zehra

(380+ reviews on the web)
Castle Historic Site
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 Zehra holiday planner.
