Some of the routes are extremely challenging, so be prepared!
Visit a Mining Town
Mining history in Slovakia holds a special place in the country’s heritage. The mountains in the country used to be full of non-renewable resources. Several towns have become rich due to the extraction of metals and minerals. They are truly amazing these days. Exploring Kremnica or Banská Štiavnica is one of the must-do experiences while visiting Slovakia.
