We spent almost a whole day at Spis castle...when the 90-minute audio guide rental had elapsed, we went for a delicious and inexpensive Klobasa (sausage) on the castle court and then walked the outer wall, which is definitely worth the while. Each nook and cranny of the vast grounds makes for great photos, so don't forget to take a camera! From the castle donjon or the large top-floor window facing westwards, the view of the surrounding area is breathtaking!
Visitors need to be relatively fit, though - the hill needs to be tackled first and the paths inside the grounds are sloped and rather rocky as well, in some parts.
Spis castle was among the most professional attractions we visited in Slovakia: well-organised, multilingual personnel and good infrastructure - something we know now is not to be taken for granted.
