  • Building from the second half of the 16. the century has undergone more reconstructions, is worth a visit. Banska Stiavnica is anywhere near so here is štvrťhodinku, for example, around the brewery's coat of arms. Worth the wait for the interpretation of the Guide, it will give you enough information, particularly as it relates to the history of the Turkish vpádov in Slovakia. On each floor is worth watching. Great Turkish conquests of the maps are processed 4. floor. At the nearby cemetery, you can see the tomb of the University.

  • We got through to the center of the schodiky Zamok caliper on It and around the story cintorin ulicku. Our resort we just spent an hour, when it could be guided, and so we have to take certain materials and sli we on your own (no way, we met a group of, but nevadi, not so well). Even with the legend of its creation is really difficult zamok, najma protitureckym fight with ukazkami arms.

  • Another castle in Banska Stiavnica while not as majestic as the Old castle still quite impressive.
  • Actually a bastion, Banská Štiavnica's ladmark from the time of the Ottoman Empire invasions on Kingdom of Hungary. If you're foreigner, it's not worth to go inside that much - it's 70's reconstruction with four levels of really decayed, old exhibition display about the 16th and 17th century invasions to this area. Almost nothing in English but even Slovak kids would die from boredom. With fresh, new, interactive exposition this could be a great museum. On the other side, it's just 2 euros. How it is now, it's "just" a landmark with great history and views on Banská Štiavnica.
  • Just an OK place. Very compact, little castle with a museum inside (barely interesting). If you are in the area, better visit the OLD castle which is just a few minutes drive from here.
  • Quite boring castle. Not worth the trip there.
  • Away exponaty-themed protitureckych wars. Watch out for stairs-for imobilne starsie caliper inappropriately or person, just watch out for the children.
