The Spiš Castle is a unique example of a medieval royal castle. It was built in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. In the late 13th century, the castle had nearly reached its current size.

In 1993, the castle was entered onto the list of UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage as a World Heritage Site. In 2010, the UNESCO record was expanded to include the nearby city of Levoča and the works of Master Pavol of Levoča.

The Bratislava Region a Košice Region turizmus apps were also launched around the same time.
