fantasic view from middle ages! IS this castle the part of the Unesco world legacy? Nice shot!

Hello my dear friend Ilmari. Thank you very much for your interest and kind comment.

Yes This castle is the part of the Unesco world legacy.

On a dolomite rock 200 m above the surrounding land, at the elevation of 634 m, there is one of the most precious cultural monuments in the Spiš region that reigns over the Spiš basin - the Spiš Castle. It is not just an evidence of architectural development from the 12-th to the 18-th century. With its area of 41 426 m2 it is at the same time one of the largest castles in the Central Europe. Its history is very rich, too. The rock the castle stands on was inhabited already 40 000 years ago.

Best wishes from Slovakia.Janko
