The following photos, we will introduce you to the traditional Krnacek races, which take place every year in the village of Turecka. This year's track was very challenging due to the amount of snow that froze and increased the speed of the track. Even though some crews overturned or ended off the tracks, no one was serious. The contestants, as well as the spectators, had fun and adrenaline and remembered the old traditions. The event included a rich cultural program with a taste of traditional Slovak dishes.

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.
Join us for a tour to the Stiavnice region. Banska Stiavnica is sort of its cultural, historic and social center.
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.
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.
One of the most beautiful mining cities in Slovakia – Banska Stiavnica. It is unique for its architecture, history, and atmosphere like anywhere else. Its romantic streets and quiant nooks tempt you to discover this place of long history.
In the heart of Slovakia is located a historical town which is also a UNESCO town. We go there today. It is unique Banska Stiavnica famous for history of mining and many important sights.
Picturesque village on middle Slovak with a peculiar name can be found halfway between the towns of the district of Banská Bystrica and March.
Ľubietová lies on the border of Slovak Red Mountains and the Central Lubietová Vepor. Stream Hutná flows through it, which is a left bank tributary of the Hron river.
In the Slatina River valley, about 14 kilometers from Zvolen, there is the village of Viglas and above, the castle Viglas stands proudly. It is this castle we decided to visit during our trip across Slovakia.
Not that big town Krupina where lives about 8000 inhabitants is situated in the southern part of central Slovakia on the route Elected - Šahy. At first impression it could seems that this place is not that interesting for tourists, but it is not like that. Definitely you should visit it.
Krupina town, located approximately in the middle of the triangle formed by towns of Zvolen, the Levice and Velký Krtíš we'll visit for the second time. In the last article we approached the location of this city, and presented probably the most popular monument in the area - Turkish wells. Today we will talk about the history of Krupina and we´re inviting you to the nearby watchtower Vartovka.
