Spisska Nova Ves is not a city which instantly pops in mind of tourists when they think about Slovakia. Moreover, after many years of visiting this Central European country, I discovered Spisska Nova Ves only now. And I must say that I was positively surprised by this little Slovak town. That’s why I would like to share the 5 reasons to visit Spisska Nova Ves in Slovakia!
1. Longest lenticular square in Europe
As in the majority of Slovak towns, the main street in Spisska Nova Ves is the one where all the tourist attractions are situated. In fact, it is the real vibrant heart of the city. Colorful houses, cozy cafes, different museums. But Spisska Nova Ves went further having the longest lens-shaped square in Europe!
2. Tallest church tower in Slovakia
As you can already feel, this city is all about breaking records. Right in the city center stands beautiful Church of the Virgin Mary’s Ascension with the Neo-Gothic tower. It looks impressive and is a highlight of the Old Town.
“87 m – the height of the Church’s tower”
