After a week we will return to the Banská Bystrica region. In the following lines, we will please all cycling enthusiasts, as well as history and monuments. Gradually we will go to Pustý hrad, to the village of Špania Dolina and by bike we will get to the secrets.
This time we will take you to the south of central Slovakia, where it covers the largest area of all regions. We will talk about the Banská Bystrica region, whose history as well as monuments are closely connected with the mining past.
Enter the secrets of creating and creating maps in the Slovak Museum of Maps, which you can visit not only in person, but also through a virtual tour.
After a week we will finish our trip to the plague columns. We will talk about the fate of it in Banská Bystrica and we will remember the doctor Karel Otto Moller.
In the heart of Banská Bystrica, right on the square in front of the leaning clock tower, rises the Marian column. "We will meet at Mary's," many hearers say. At the same time, does he have any idea of its history, why was it built and subsequently had to leave its place in the 1960s?
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. Many monuments, museums and open-air museums of military technology have been built over the past decade to commemorate this dark event in our history. They want to remind us not only of the destruction and casualties caused by the war, but also of the victory.
We haven't taken you to mountains in Slovakia for a long time now, so we'll fix it today. We will visit one of the mining gems of Slovakia, which is Špania Dolina. It lies less than 11 kilometers from Banská Bystrica in the arms of the Starohorské Hills.
