Photographer's Note

Slovakia belongs to the countries with the highest number of castles, chateaux and manor houses in Europe. Over 425 chateaux and 180 castles also with ruines are situated here.
Some of the are seats of organizations, some of them are visited by the tourists and some of them are in ruins which are reconstructed.
This castle could be called as an uncrowned king of all Slovak castles. It΄s name is Spissky Hrad (Spis Castle) and it΄s the biggest medieval gothic castle in Central Europe and one of the biggest castles in Europe. It΄s hardly to imagine how huge this castle really is for the one who didn΄t visited it. It΄s unique heritage and well preserved fortifications with it΄s area was the main reasons to sign this historical jewel in the UNESCO heritage list also together with the unique monastery surrounded by the walls, called Spisska Kapitula and the Church of Holy Spirit in Zehra which is one of the oldest in Slovakia and has beautiful paintings from the medieval times.
