Špania Dolina

This tour will take you to Špania dolina – the most charming village in Slovakia. Located in Central Slovakia in a valley surrounded by beautiful mountains, lovely in all seasons. The village is situated 11 km north from a nearby town Banská Bystrica, on the border of two mountain ranges – Nízke Tatry and Veľká Fatra. Because of mining the history of the village goes back to ancient times. The most significant time is connected to a 15th century Thurzo – Fugger Ungarischer Handel – a copper mining company known around the world. Now a village with beautiful mining architecture, located at the end of the road and therefore quiet with the freshest air. On the way back we will also stop in another mining town called Banská Bystrica and a village that has a wooden church listed as one of the Slovak UNESCO sights.
