Pension building is situated in the very centre of a medieval mining town Banska Stiavnica which once used to be, thanks to the rich findings of precious metals, one of the most developed towns of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and Europe. The centre of Banska Stiavnica together with lakes called ‘tajch’ is one of the four monuments of Slovakia included in the World Cultural Heritage UNESCO. ‘Tajch’ is a system of water reservoirs and energy source for mining. A number of historical monuments, museums in the town itself or in its neighborhood are a suitable way of spending free time even in case of bad weather. In the surroundings of the town, there are several Tajchs, artificial lakes, used by tourists for the summer recreation.
During the winter months, nearby skiing slopes covered with snow also provide a source of unforgettable experience. Forests full of mushrooms will be a temptation for the mushroom-pickers during the autumn months. You will find the pension at Starozamocka Street which cannot be missed when strolling through the town. It joins Saint Trinity Square (Námestie svätej trojice) and the Old Castle (Starý zámok) which both belong to the main attractions of the town. The visitors may appreciate several original parts that have been preserved in this former civic house dating back to the period of late renaissance. Authentic staircase with banisters, original support wall in the garden, architectural details such as parts of window panels, stone window decoration and arch ceilings on the ground floor, these are traces of skills and wit of Banska Stiavnica inhabitants.
