A town with 40,000 inhabitants is the gateway to the Slovak Paradise. It developed from the settlement, and in the middle of the 13th century it was settled by German colonists. The centre of the town is characteristic of the renaissance style. The city has one of the largest squares of a spindle type in Europe, which gives a peculiar character to the town originally with gothic, renaissance multi-storey townsmen houses bordering the square. Do not miss Reduta Theatre in the Art Nouveau style, Evangelical Church from the 14th century with the bell 86 meters high, Gothic Roman Catholic Church and the building of the Homeland Museum in Letná Street with Levoča Gate.
