Dating from the medieval period, St. Egidius Basilica showcases early Gothic architecture and serves as one of Poprad's main historical attractions. Originally built during the 13th century, the church today stands over a square of the same name in the center of town. Visit the church and explore its interior, notable for the double-aisled construction native to the region. Don't miss the paintings within depicting the Virgin Mary and St. Egidius himself, both of which date to the Baroque period.

  • The Church of St. Giles in Bardejove was built in the mid-15th century. Located on the Town Hall Square, with an ensemble of which it is a single object, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This church is famous primarily for its old gothic altars in quantities of 11 pieces. To me they are, however, particularly strong impressions are not fired. And here's the view from the Tower on the square just a fantastic and memorable.

  • Yes, even the Eastern Slovakia conceals a lot of beauties and treasures. One of them is also the City Hall Square in Bardejov (Bártfa), the Town Hall and Basilica St. Egidius. I highly recommend a visit to this majestic Church. If you are already there so you come out the top of the Tower, where there is a beautiful view of the city and the square. Together with the beautiful view of the Town Hall, the church operates on either side of the square you are any trees or buildings. The square is a huge area of the pedestrian zone (in comparison with its vibrant Presov or Levoča), so you can feel free to browse the top down without fear, that you bring them a car. I recommend a visit to anyone who is interested in both the sacral monuments, but the City Hall square is actually suitable for everyone who wants to enjoy a Sunday.

  • Great trip-mandatory. To see what has happened in Slovakia, when the South Polish was still not quite on time;) Tour even for those who like to spend their vacation on lying, not far from the border of the town square and the Basilica. After sightseeing, I encourage you to jump on the cake and coffee at a cyber café with view of the Basilica
