Spissky Hrad Castle

Allow me to share another tourist photo from my recent trip to Slovakia with you.


This is the Spissky Hrad castle, built in 12 century. It was the political, administrative, economic and cultural centre of Spiš county. It strated with the central round tower, and was later surrounded by several outter walls, each time adding some additional space to the castle real estate.


The castle is frequently used as a location for films, including Dragonheart (1996), Phoenix, Kull the Conqueror, The Lion in Winter, The Last Legion.
