Levoča

Levoča, as one of the biggest cultural and historical treasure in Slovakia, is one of the most visited cities in Slovakia. It’s included at UNECO World Heritage List.

The main part of this city is a unique rectangular square, which makes a significant urban monumental area. You can find here the Roman Catholic Church of Saint James, which is valuable mainly because of its interior. There is a late Gothic altar of Saint James, from the manufactury of Master Paul of Levoča and with a height of 18.6 m it is the highest of its kind in the world.

On the square we can also find the famous cage of shame, Renaissance town hall or Thurzo House. High above the city there is a Marian Mountain, which is the largest pilgrimage point of Slovaks. In 1995, Pope John Paul II celebrated the Holy Mass here.
