    If you can only see one thing while in Banská Štiavnica See this. I’ve been here three times already. It’s a great experience for couples families and friends alike.

    Due to the Corona virus pandemy, the visit is without a guide for private groups only,but it's worth a visit. Not in many castles there are so many place accessible for visitors as in this one. Receiving a printed guide with a map and descriptions you can start your own adventure 🙂

    Definitely will recommend. It is amazing place of wooden carvings and history of Banska Stiavnica. Exhibition is in small room but packed with miniatures and carving figures. Each has the story to tell. Small entry fees but absolutely worthy.

    This Castle has an other name, too: Girl Castle. It can be seen from everywhere in the town because it lies on a hill. It was built between 1554-1571 against the Turkish attacks. It belongs several ghost- and witch-legends. It has 4 corner towers and 24 cannons. This Renaissance Castle has a rich history, and some important functions: eg.: clocktower, belltower etc. Today it's a museum. You can see lots of flags and arms there. The view is breathtaking, you can see the whole town.

    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.

    It was very nice to visit the place again after many years. It offers only guided tours, you cannot enter on your own. We had a bigger group, but people tried to keep social distancing. The interior is still great, rooms are beautifully preserved. Its a pity pictures cannot be taken. We visited the park after our tour, its gorgeous. Big, nicely kept. Overall we enjoyed our time spent there very much.

    It had been built from the year cca 1450, finished in 1490 and was consecrated in 1500 A.D. There are nice stained glass windows and lot of side chapels. It is a late Gothic temple in the heart of Banská Štiavnica. It is one of "must see" places in the town.
