We invite you to visit three of the most beautiful towns during your stay:
Banská Štiavnica – world heritage
The picturesque town of Banská Štiavnica is located in the Štiavnica Hills. It used to be the centre of the mining industry of Austria-Hungary and with its technical monuments, it has been included on the list of the world cultural and natural heritage of UNESCO. It features steep, winding streets, historic buildings, terraces with cafés scattered around the town, and beautiful views. A walk around the charming town is a good holiday tip. If you have more time, we recommend to also visit the historical sites, exhibitions, and the surrounding area. An unforgettable experience is a visit to the al fresco mining museum, one of a kind in Slovakia and Europe. In a mining coat, with a helmet and a lantern, you’ll experience first-hand the conditions in which miners used to mine for gold and silver here.
Bojnice – a fairytale castle
Admire the beauty of the castle, rebuilt in the Neo-Gothic style according to the style of the French châteaus on the Loire. During the summer season, guides will accompany you in period costumes. You can also see a demonstration of birds of prey training and historical fencing in the natural amphitheatre at the castle.
Malá Fatra mountain range – where tradition comes to life on the wooden rafts
Have you heard about rafting on the Váh River? It has a rich history and tradition in Slovakia. The raftsmen will tell you all about it during a scenic, 7 km long cruise under the Strečno Castle. Fascinating views of the Starhrad castle ruin, the rocky Margita and Besná cliffs, the Strečno Castle, and the surrounding nature of the Malá Fatras from the Váh’s natural riverbed are among the most beautiful that the landscape in the heart of Europe has to offer.
