Banska Stiavnice (Slovakia) Vacation Travel Video Guide
Travel video about destination Banska Stiavnice in Slovakia.
Banská Štiavnica is one of the most beautiful cities in Slovakia and whose historic buildings form its mediaeval centre. The old town, and silver mines of the surrounding area, have been designated as a World Cultural Heritage Site. The Kammer-Hof was created by the combination of three Gothic buildings during the sixteenth century. Up until the nineteenth century, the mining chamber and the first technical university in the world were located there. The Church Of The Assumption Of Mary was built by the Dominican Order at the beginning of the thirteenth century. For the first time in this region a rib vault was raised in its construction and served as a model for further buildings. However, at the beginning of the nineteenth century the church burned down and was rebuilt in Classical style. Now its altars and paintings shine out in all their glory and highlight the deep religious faith of both miners and mine owners alike. Since 1971, the New Castle has been a museum. On one floor, musical instruments, household items and clothing. Another floor contains numerous weapons and suits of armour which were used during hostilities by the Turks. The city underwent troubled times and its prosperity had to be defended. The wealth of the city and its mining of silver made Banská Štiavnica wealthy and created its historical splendour.

Bojnice in 4K - most beautiful castle of Slovakia
Most beautiful castle in Slovakia
Slovakia has some of the most beautiful places in the world and being off the beaten path it is a very budget-friendly location at the same time. In this free travel guide I give you tips on how to visit Slovakia’s most beautiful castle in Bojnice. It looks like right out of a Disney movie.
Best time to visit
Slovakia is cold in winter so the main seasons when people are visiting is summer, spring and autumn. Bojnice is a destination that is mainly visited by Slovak tourists so prices for accommodation and food are low.
How to get there
We came from Austria so we first went to Bratislava.
If you are going by car you can first go to Trenčín and immediately before entering the city turn right and follow the road through the mountains until Bojnice.
If you are going with public transport your first option is to take the fast train which goes to the high Tatras and stops in Trenčín as well. There you have to change to a bus that goes to Prievidza. From there you can take another bus to the nearby town of Bojnice (or walk ca. 30 minutes).
Or you take a slower train from Bratislava that goes to Prievidza directly (second option).
Bojnice is a small city. There is a big alley for pedestrians (Hurbanovo námestie) with some restaurants eventually leading to the castle park.
Downstairs from this area there are many weekend houses with gardens. This is where we stayed.
We stayed in Penzión Kastelán. This accomodation was a very good value. I can highly recommend it!
We were eating at Bojnická reštaurácia. They had a lunch menue for a very reasonable price (around 5 Euros including water and soup).
The waiter (who was very friendly) could not translate the bread-like side dish but it is the same kind of bread that is used to make dumplings (“Knödel” in german).
They had an excellent Greek salad (vegetarian option).
Next to the castle there are many shops where you can buy oblates with various tastes. This is very typical and makes for a very good gift.
Top 5 things to do in Bojnice
1. Visit the castle and park
The main attraction is the castle of course.
Surrounding it is a very nice park. Especially in autumn the colors of the trees are amazing.
The castle grounds can be visited only with a guided tour in Slovak. But you receive a small booklet in your language. Note: You have to pay extra if you want to take pictures and even more if you want to make a video.
It is definitely worth to go inside.
2. See the falcon show
Right next to the castle entrance there is an area to see falcons. Unfortunately this area was closed when we visited (because of winter). But if it is open it is something really interesting.
3. Bojnice Zoo
The entrance to the zoo is also near the castle entrance.
It stretches up the hill and if you are visiting with children this is a must do.
4. Bojnice Spa (Kupele Bojnice / LD Mier) and public swimming pool
Bojnice has a very nice spa with some indoor pools and one outdoor pool. It is a little bit away from the center but you can walk there.
There is a nice footpath that starts behind the parking lot (left side behind the castle).
To go there you first go through the castle park passing by the public outdoor swimming pool.
5. Walk to treetop footpath/viewpoint (Vyhliadková veža)
There is an amazing lookout tower on top of the hill behind the castle. Entry was 8 Euros (2018).
We went there going straight up the hill behind the castle (passing by the falconry area and then going little bit right following the fence of the zoo later).
This path is a little bit rough sometimes but more or less ok with normal shoes. Be aware of mountain bikes! Not recommended for going down.
There is actually a nice footpath that we used for going down (it starts near the Spa but you don’t have to go all the way there).
The treetop footpath features a nice slide. Unfortunately it was not in operation because they need someone to supervise it but there were just 2 people at the cash desk (not enough visitors I guess in November).
But there is a nice tunnel made of ropes that is a lot of fun:
Downstairs from the treetop path there are some mushroom houses you can visit and go inside. This is mainly for children but it is very funny anyways.
When we went down we visited a viewpoint from where you can see the castle in the distance.
Bojnice castle is one of the most beautiful castles in the world and the most beautiful castle of Slovakia. It looks like right out of a Disney movie.
I can highly recommend going there. What do you think about the castle and town? Did you visit it already or are you planning your stay? Please post in the comments below! Also if you have any question or comment don’t hesitate.

Spiš Castle, Spišské Podhradie, Slovakia / Spišský hrad, Slovensko / Zamek Spiski
The ruins of Spiš Castle (Slovak: Spišský hrad, Hungarian: Szepesi vár, German: Zipser Burg) in eastern Slovakia form one of the largest castle sites in Central Europe. The castle is situated above the town of Spišské Podhradie and the village of Žehra, in the region known as Spiš (Hungarian: Szepes, German: Zips, Polish: Spisz, Latin: Scepusium). It was included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1993 (together with the adjacent locations of Spišská Kapitula, Spišské Podhradie and Žehra). This is one of the biggest European castles by area (41 426 m²).( )
Walking Tour version:
Spišský hrad je hradná zrúcanina zaberajúca vrchol travertínovej kopy Spišský hradný vrch, tvoriaca dominantu širokého okolia na hlavnom cestnom ťahu spájajúcom východoslovenské regióny Spiš a Šariš. Je nielen dokladom vývoja architektúry od 12. do 18. storočia u nás, ale svojou rozlohou prevyšujúcou 4 hektáre (presne 41 426 m²) je jedným z najväčších hradných komplexov na Slovensku a aj v Európe.
Napriek tomu, že sa vypína nad mestom Spišské Podhradie, katastrálne patrí územiu obce Žehra (jej miestnej časti Hodkovce) v okrese Spišská Nová Ves v Košickom kraji.( )
Pěší výlet verzio:
Zamek Spiski -- zabytkowy kompleks zamkowy na Słowacji z przełomu XI i XII wieku jest zaliczany do największych tego typu w środkowej Europie, cały kompleks zamkowy zajmuje powierzchnię ok. 4 ha. Obecnie większość zamku jest zrujnowana, część murów obronnych została odbudowana współcześnie. Zamek położony jest na na terenie Żehry (Žehra), która należy do najstarszych miejscowości na Spiszu. W 1993 roku w uznaniu jego znaczenia dla kultury tych ziem, został on wpisany wraz okolicą na listę światowego dziedzictwa UNESCO.( )
Slovakia Scenic Drive - Trnava to Bratislava D1
Today morning drive from Trnava to Bratislava. It was one of happier days as there was not as much traffic and only small delay due to traffic jams. This scenic drive start near railway station in Trnava and goes through Hrnciarovce nad Parnou village where the road connects to D1 highway. Afterwards there are couple of exits and finally arriving to Bratislava and traffic jams. In Bratislava I left D1 highway at 2nd exit - Airport and Avion shopping center where I entered underground garage.
