After an hour and a half long trip, we arrive to Hollókő (Hungary), a traditional village unchanged during the centuries, housing Palócz-style architectural gems. The village has been developed along a single street where also stand the ruins of a castle dating from the fourteenth century, the time of the Ottoman invasion.

The Castle of Spiš (Spišský hrad in Slovak, Szepesi vár in Hungarian; Zipser Burg in German) is one of the largest ruin-castles in Central Europe. Located in the district of Spišská Nová Ves, in the municipality of Zehra, region of Košice, Slovakia, built between the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, the Romanesque and Gothic castle is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993.

The next attraction is only 15 minutes away. Levoča, since the beginning, has always been a city with a predominantly slave population. After the invasion of the Tartars in 1241, a German-speaking population occupied the region. The earliest mention of Levoča dates back to 1249, in a letter of Hungarian King Bela IV. In 1271, Levoča became the capital of Spiš, and in 1371, the city was elevated to the status of royal town. Levoča became a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 28 June 2009, as an extension to the site of the Castle of Spiš and associated cultural monuments. The discovery walk takes us through the Gate of Košice, the Gothic Church of St. James, the House of Thurzo, the Prefecture dating back to the fifteenth century. (In case of reservation without accommodation and accommodation in 3-star hotel, dinner in Levoča is not included; in case of reservation with accommodation in 4 or 5-star hotel: dinner is included in the package)
