Situated in Eastern Slovakia, 25km from Poprad, Levoca is an attractive historic town that is popular with day trippers - it is easily visited from Poprad or any of the High Tatras towns. Half to 1 day is enough to see the sights.
During the 14th & 15th C. Levoca was a major trade center in Central Europe however from the 17th C onward its importance waned. Now a small quiet local town, its rich heritage is visible only in the medieval architecture of the central area.
Home of the famed wood carver Master Pavel, many of his works can be seen in several of the buildings on the main square.
