Welcome to Banská Štiavnica


By the 18th century, Banská Štiavnica had grown into the third-largest town in the Hungarian Kingdom. But 100 years later, minerals were depleted, mines closed and townspeople began to leave. Today, Banská Štiavnica's frozen-in-time ambience is part of its allure. Medieval castles, burghers' houses and sacred sights all contributed to the historic centre's Unesco listing in 1993.
