Travel video about destination Spišský Hrad in Slovakia.
Situated in eastern Slovakia, Zipser Castle or, Spišský Hrad, is one of the largest fortifications in Central Europe. Located on an expansive travertin rock, it is situated above Spišské Podhradie. At its zenith up to two thousand people lived there and the complex covered an area of more than four hectares and five castle courtyards. Up until 1464 the castle belonged to Hungary and subsequent members of the Hungarian nobility continued its occupation. During the first half of the seventeenth century, thirty one towns and villages belonged to the castle. Today, the castle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On an adjacent hill is an intriguing place, the church town of Spišská Kapitula, Slovakia’s ‘Vatican City.’ A sturdy ring wall with only two exits, protected the church. The Romanesque, Saint Martin Basilica, is situated at the top of a hill, a mighty three-aisled building with two towers which, from around 1245, was thirty years in construction. Its Gothic main altar originated from the workshop of Master Paul Of Leutschau who had created numerous famous altars in other cathedrals. The religious paintings on the altar, along with a number of wooden images, depict deep religious faith. This symbol of ecclesiastical authority has managed to survive the rigours of time and has become an integral part of world heritage culture.
