Museum of the Slovak National Uprising, Banska Bystrica

(3.8/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Relive one of the most turbulent periods in Slovakia's history at Museum of the Slovak National Uprising, a facility dedicated to the country's experience during World War II. Though the uprising was militarily defeated, it was symbolic of a nation that refused to give in. Stop by the museum, housed in a distinctly Communist-style concrete building, and trace the nation's development during the war, beginning with the German takeover and ending with its liberation at the hands of the resistance movement and the Soviet and Czechoslovakian Armies. Get an up-close view of weapons, personal items, letters, correspondences, and more in the exhibits. Outside, see the display of military vehicles and visit the tomb of the Unknown Soldier under the bridge.

  • It is a comprehensive Museum of national liberation movement in Slovakia during World War II. At the time of weapons and communications equipment, such as exhibits. Large sculptures placed in the courtyard of the building. It is attractive.

  • Visit the external exposure of the Museum of the SLOVAK NATIONAL UPRISING in Banská Bystrica and the inspection of military technology will take the old and the young curious. The building is easily accessible by car and is located near the main square of Banská Bystrica. Car parking charges apply.
