    Tough you have to walk to the steep hill it ´s definetely worth it. However it ´ s not suitable for smaller kids. The view is breathtaking.

    After climbing up the streets and stairs to the bulding of Mining Academy we went into this nice park to relax. This is a huge area (7 hectares). It was used for practical courses for students from 1850's. Now it's open for public, free entrance. It's well cared for and clean with lots of green. We saw some exotic plants and trees: e.g.sequoia or cedar. We was walking and relaxing. Our favourite part was the tiny pond with beautiful water lilies.

    After the quarantine we visited two "mining towns": Kremnica and Banska Stiavnica last week. Both are nice historic places, we loved them. In the centre of this town you can found the Main square with the Holy Trinity Column which was built after the great plague epidemic (1710-11). This square was the most important forum of the town in the past. Nowadays there are some restaurants and bars around and you can taste the good Slovak beer or wine.

    During a hot summer day, this is a perfect spot for refreshment for free! Close to Banska Stiavnica, free parking and entrance and clear cool water of a perfect temperature. Public toilet, changing "Area" and fast food stands available. Great!

    Each year I am visiting Slovakia and also Banská Štiavnica. This little town has a very special energy. I also like to see what have been rebuilt, what is new.
    Some really nice places having coffee or
    beer (Erb).

    A place each tourist have to visit.

    Very interesting statue that features a trio of archangels. The Virgin Mary is crushing a monster and the whole statue dominates the square.
