LEVOČA - THE BIRTHPLACE OF OUR BUSSES

The venerable town of Levoča ranks amongst the most beautiful Slovak towns. It is particularly famous for the wood-carving works by Master Pavol of Levoča, especially his St. James altar.The most interesting part of the town is the oblong Master Pavol Square with St. James Parish Church. The church’s interior boasts pieces of the rich medieval sacral art of the Spiš region. At 18.6m it is the world’s highest altar of its kind.The altar was made from basswood between 1508 and 1517 in the shop of Master Pavol who is recognised as the greatest medieval artist of Slovakia. Near the church is the former Levočatown hall with arcades. Only a portal has remained, which preserves its original Gothicstyle. Today, the town hall houses the Museum of the Spiš Region. Another interesting landmark in the town is an Evangelical church built in the classicistic style in the 19th century.On the northern side of the square is an important building where merchants passing through Levoča in the past centuries used to stop, weigh and declare their merchandise. The building is neighboured by the count’s manor. It used to be one of the most spectacular count’s housesin the Kingdom of Hungary. The square is bordered by over 50 burgher houses, many of which are even today referred to bytheir former owners. They include for instance the Thurzo House, the Krupek House, or the Hains House which used to accommodate a lyceum. The city made its record in the history of Slovakia in 1844 when it became the site where the revolutionary song which later becamethe Slovak national anthem was performed for the first time ever. During summer tourist seasons, the town attracts visitors with a performance depicting the story of White Lady of Levoča. Actors wearing contemporary suits narrate the sad story from days gone by in the square near the Cage of Shame and the Evangelical Church. Our manufacturing site and the birthplace of our and your buses is situated right at entrance to Levoča, in the former SAD facility.
