Overview

In the highest point of Štiavnické vrchy with an excellent orbital outlook to all cardinal points. For its imposing location it creates a significant land dominating point. Changing of the Panonian and Carpathian flora is characteristic for this region. There are several protected plant and animal species here. The peak itself was inhabited already in prehistoric ages. During archeological works a huge Lužice stronghold was dicovered here. The medieval castle belonged to Koháry family, later to Coburg family. Sitno and its environs is considerd a birthplace of European tourism in moderate locations. Observation tower at the foot of the peak is in operation from Mai to September, at the same time it operates as information centre and also exposition of CHKO (Nature reserve) is located here.

I hiked the Sitno hill many times, with young children age of 4-5. It is a nice hike mostly through the woods. At the top of the hill you have a spectacular view of Stiavnica hills and there is a viewing tower with small bar,...More

If you like non-technical climbs, this is a good one. It takes about 1 1/2 hours if you're in good shape; and the first hour is a tough, uphill climb. The upper meadow path is glorious in the spring and the set of stairways to...More
