In a picturesque clearway of the High Tatras, since 1946, so called Great Poprad, which entered the people’s minds not only in Slovakia, but also the minds of international community as a gateway to the smallest European alpine mountains, has begun to write its history. Poprad, the first written record of which is preserved from 1256, used to be for 690 years, the whole Medieval and New Ages (until 1946), just one of the towns creating the current town of Poprad with 55,000 inhabitants.
Spisska Sobota is the most interesting and historically most picturesque part of Poprad, today’s administrative and business centre of the region under High Tatra mountains. Refereed to as Forum Sabbathe (Saturday’s Market) and later on as Sanctus Georgius, the town was first mentioned in 1256. Spisska Sobota is a small town founded on a northern Slovakian trade route called Via Magna leading from Zilina in the West to Levoca in the East. This road is also connected to the Hungarian Empire with Poland. http://www.slovakheritage.org/Townsvill/spissobota.htm
