Spiš UNESCO Tour

About the region

The Spiš region, located in eastern Slovakia, boasts a rich history that spans several millennia. This area first gained prominence in the early Middle Ages, becoming a vital part of the Kingdom of Hungary. The region’s significance was underscored by the construction of Spiš Castle in the 12th century, which stands as one of Central Europe’s largest castle complexes. Over the centuries, Spiš became a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities, including Slovaks, Hungarians, Jews, and Germans, which is reflected in the diverse architectural, linguistic, and cultural heritage visible across the region today. Today, this place is a living museum of history. Most of the places you will admire are not dead monuments. People pray in the same churches as 800 years ago, walk in the same squares, and live behind the same walls.

Who is this trip ideal for?

Spiš UNESCO Tour is for everyone who enjoys history more than hiking. The only slightly challenging terrain that awaits us is a small hill in the Slovak Paradise National Park, from which there is a wonderful view. The rest of the trip is all about open-mouthed wonder and pleasant discussions with our guides. It is an ideal choice for families, the elderly, and anyone who likes European culture, architecture, and the Middle Ages. Last but not least, the region is known for Christian pilgrims who go to the town of Levoča every year.
