Today we will set off through photographs to a city famous for its mining past, but also for the Slovak National Uprising. Surely you already know that we will visit Banská Bystrica. In addition to the history associated with mining, especially silver and copper, it offers a unique SNP memorial, an attractive center declared a city monument reserve and the only Slovak map museum located in the suburbs (in the village Kynceľová) of this Central Slovak capital.

Banska Bystrica is often looked at as the heart of the country below the Tatras. There one of the most important memorials in Slovakia is located. It reminds the nation of the second world war and Slovak resistance to fascism.
In the northern part of the Banská Bystrica region, approximately 20 kilometers northeast of Banská Bystrica, lies the village of Brusno. From the cadastral point of view, the territory was originally divided between the villages of Svatý Ondrej and Brusno, but in 1960 it was merged into one large municipality. The town is known mainly for its spa, but in the following lines we will introduce you to other tourist attractions.
What would you say about learning about important historical milestones in Slovakia in the form of a live story? Such a unique opportunity will come to you through a new publication from the Banská Bystrica publishing house CBS - Slovakia in Time.
This time we will head to the foot of the Slovak Ore Mountains and to the river Rimava, where the town of Tisovec lies. The first written mention dates from 1334 and its history is closely connected with mining, more precisely with the mining of silver, iron ore and later limestone.
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.
We can describe Banska Bystrica easily – mining history and the Slovakian National Uprising. Since time immemorial has been the history of Banska Bystrica tied to mining – mostly silver and copper.
Every Slovak, if you happen to be in Central Slovakia, logically recommends a trip to Banska Stiavnica. However, its bigger "sister" and the natural metropolis of the region - Banska Bystrica deserve attention as well. Let's get together to explore it.
