Levoca is a city with a population of about 15,000 is in the Spis district, and a thriving trading centre on the Via Magna.

The towns history goes back to 1249 as Leucha.

Levoca's citizens and craftsmen traded with Old Hungary, Poland and as far as Venice.

Later Levoca became the regional centre of the Renaissance and humanism in Old Hungary.

Levoca experienced a slow decline when the Kosice-Bohumin railway line avoided the city.

Since 1996 Levoca is the district administration centre again.
