Hi Micha.Many thanks for your kind comment. Something above Levoča city... Present day Levoča is an urban cultural historical reservation. It was founded in the middle of 13th century, after the Tatars raided the local lands. Successively it became the most important town in the Spiš region. Since 1271 it had been a seat of local self-government of 24 Spiš towns. The town is rich with historical gothic and renaissance buildings. Levoča was a cultural center of the Reformation processes in Slovakia. A printing plant had operated in Levoča since 1624. During anti-Habsburg uprisings in the 17th century, the town was on the decline.

Hi Micha.Levoča, with a number of its historical monuments, is one of the most important towns in Slovakia historically. In the historical center, you will find more than 50 gothic, renaissance and early-baroque houses of nobles with arcade interior courtyards. The original town walls from the 14th and 15th century still remained preserved around the town center and they are about 2 km long. Several towers, bastions, and Košická and Menhardtovská town gates have been reconstructed.
