Elegant Banská Stiavnica (part of which is classified a Unesco World Heritage Site) still radiates its former splendour. Strolling through its picturesque little streets you can see evidence of its rich mining past in the Romanesque and Renaissance castles, fine townhouses and Baroque churches. Superb traditional festival (in September).
