Banská Štiavnica, gold city
Banská Štiavnica is the gem of Slovakia. This medieval town owns its beauty to its prosperous mining past and its surrounding nature. The medieval Banská Štiavnica is one of the most beautiful and pleasant towns in Slovakia. Once very rich thanks to its gold and silver reserves, it is now converted to an arty city with cultural festivals and design cafés.
The visit of the city wouldn’t be complete without a tour in a real mine in order to feel the fear of the miners.
When the limits of animal strength were reached, big holes were dug by man into ground. Filled with water and connected to each other, these water reservoirs helped providing energy for the mining engines. Today these artificial lakes, called Tajch, are a favorite summer recreation site.
We’ll finish our trip in the hot springs of Sklené teplice where the water reaches up to 42°C! After a bath in a natural cave, masseurs will take good care of you…
