Poprad is a town overlooking the High Tatra mountains, in Spiš, a region of Slovakia once inhabited by Saxons. Thanks to socialist urban planning, today's Poprad looks somewhat like a tin crown which, paradoxically, has five true gems glittering atop its branches.

Keď na ceste z Prešova do Levoče vyjdeme z tunela a odbočíme na „gotickú cestu“, ktorá vedie do Levoče, pred očami sa nám objaví jedinečná scenéria. Najprv zazrieme zrúcaninu hradu, ktorý sa týči na pustom vrchu. Na prvý pohľad sa zdá, akoby biele steny boli prirodzeným pokračovaním travertínových kôp, ktoré vykúkajú spoza trávnatého svahu.

Should you be driving from the direction of Prešov, as soon as you come out of the tunnel and take a turn for what is called ‘the Gothic tour’ leading to Levoča, you will be faced with an amazing view. The first thing you note is a sublime ruinous castle crowning a barren hill.

The contemporary revival of Bardejov is due to the fact that time seems to have stopped here – the  general migration of people in the 20th-21st century, the enlivening of tourism after the post-communist transition and the new Slovakia which recognised the local potential. Bardejov was re-born in the frames of a comprehensive urban reconstruction project.
