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.
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.
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.
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.
Join us for a tour to the Stiavnice region. Banska Stiavnica is sort of its cultural, historic and social center.
Join us for a tour in central Slovakia. We visit the district of Ziar nad Hronom, precisely the Royal mining town of Kremnica. Once, gold and silver was mined there and there is still a mint in operation. It is one of the oldest constantly operating undertakings in the world.

You can either climb up to Kremnicky stit, go to the towns of Ihrac or Ziar, or visit Kremnice mines nearby. Our destinations were Tri krize, Skalka, Krahule village and we paid visit to recently bulit observation tower.
