Quality photo of Bear Farm - Hungary

Bear Farm
Hungary

90 min

This bear sanctuary was established in 1998; in 2000 it became home for 18 wolves and in 2010 coaties and raccoons also moved in. The... bears were either once owned by circuses or zoos and got too old for their shows, or pets that got too big. So Bear Farm is a rescue/retirement home where these animals can live safely and in peace in their natural environment. The place also sells honey on site and visitors can feed the bears with a wooden spoon, which is an experience like no other. For more info, please visit: www.medveotthon.hu

Hronsek Wooden Church
Slovakia

75 min

This beautiful Evangelist wooden church was built in the early 18th century. In the period between 16th to 18th century more than 300 wooden churches... were built in Slovakia. But, due to the Habsburg authorities who wanted to reduce the number of Protestant churches, only 5 of these churches remained to this day. According to the law of that time, only 2 churches were allowed to be built per one region and thus those churches had to be very large to accommodate many worshipers. There were also very rigorous construction requirements for these churches but Hronsek Wooden Church is unique because of the evident Scandinavian architectural influences and it is unknown how or why these elements came to be incorporated into the structure.

Banska Stiavnica is the oldest mining town in Slovakia and through the centuries it grew into a town with Renaissance palaces, 16th-century churches, elegant squares... and castles. The dominant sight of the town center is Old Chateau and the 16th century New Chateau. Open Air Mining Museum is a must visit which offers the possibility to descend to one of its pits.

Quality photo of Vlkolinec Village - Slovakia

Vlkolinec Village
Slovakia

60 min

Vlkoklinec was granted UNESCO status for the mainly intact folk architecture with artifacts dating back to the 15th century. One might say that in Vlkoklinec... time stands still and the traditional tools, artwork, crafts, and old-style kitchens will immediately take visitors back in past, when life seemed so much simpler. This remarkably untouched settlement consists of 45 wooden houses and outbuildings of which 2 have been converted to museums. To fully experience the past times, do try the local delicacy — warm, homemade poppy seed nut roll in the village store.

Quality photo of Zvolen Castle - Slovakia

Zvolen Castle
Slovakia

90 min

What’s most interesting about the Zvolen Castle is not its well preserved Gothic architecture inspired by Italian castles, or the Renaissance reconstruction when the external... fortifications and an entrance gate were added. The most significant fact is that this castle is currently the most extensive gallery in Slovakia as it guards a branch of the Slovak National Gallery. It is home to a large collection of old masters from the 13th to the 21th centuries. Visitors can admire a true wealth of artistic types, themes and styles that combines classic art, with an emphasis on iconography and Gothic art, with contemporary works.

Quality photo of Demanovska Cave of Liberty - Slovakia

Demanovska Cave of Liberty
Slovakia

105 min

The astonishing Demanovska Cave of Liberty extends 8,126 meters into the mountains, out of which around 2 kilometers are available for tourists so the whole... tour takes about 1 hour. Within its long tunnels visitors can marvel astonishing stalactites and stalagmites of various shapes, colors and sizes, a few underground turquoise lakes but the most impressive certainly is the Great Dome, 41 meters high and 75 meters long. Heads-up: it’s cold in the cave, bring something warm to wear!
