New issues: Slovakia - "Cultural Heritage of Slovakia"

The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Spišská Nová Ves
Spišská Nová Ves (German: Neu(en)dorf; Hungarian: Igló; Polish: Nowa Wieś Spiska; Romany: Noveysis) is a town in the Košice Region of Slovakia. The town is located southeast of the High Tatras in the Spiš region, and lies on both banks of the Hornád River. It is the biggest town of the Spišská Nová Ves District (okres). As of 2006 the population was 38,357.
Spišská Nová Ves is a popular tourist attraction today, both because of the town itself and because of the unique natural beauty of the nearby Slovak Paradise mountains. The core of the town is a lens-shaped square (a square with bulging sides), typical of medieval towns. It is a cultural, administrative and business centre of the Spiš region, and is rich in art and historical monuments. Foremost is the three-naved Gothic church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. The relief on the tympanum on the south side of the church is considered to be amongst the most beautiful in the Spiš region. The tower is 87m high, the highest church tower in Slovakia. Another valuable architectural monument is the Province House, now housing a museum. It has a baroque façade, but the basement dates from the 13th century. The Town Hall was built between 1777-1779 in the Classical style, and was reconstructed in the mid 1990s.
