  • Processed historical topics relating to the city and disdainful views of the surroundings were beautiful. Understanding we have into the attack, losses and WINS over the Turks and our idea of the work to the full.

  • Although a bit gloomy, but nice and tidy. You may want to climb up to the harangtoronyba, a wonderful panorama of St.Wolfgang. The 48-yard of the Hungarian huszárhoz bring everyone flowers do:-)!!!

  • If you walk through the heart of the main tourist routes, Banska Stiavnica, after the old Lock will not even notice, because it is obscured by buildings, trojičné square. I recommend you to park on the street in the parking lot of the church paid the academic, assumption of the Virgin Mary. Then go down the street to the Art Cafe and there, up the stairs to the lower Street pink. From this street odbočia for more steps to the right. Vystúpajte up and you will see the old Castle in full glory.
