Banska Stiavnica is well worth a look if you are touring by car in Slovakia. A Baroque former silver mining town it oozes a gloriously distressed atmosphere of former wealth, which has now passed them by.. If you stay then do make time for a stroll around this small town and visit the old castle in the town where you can walk around the creaky wooded battlements.
The Pension Kachelman has basic en - suite rooms, which are kept very clean - It's only around 35 Euros for B&B, so don't expect luxury; It does the job for an overnight stay.
The best bit however is the restaurant. If you ever wondered what an Eastern Bloc restaurant's decor looked like in the communist era then look no further than here. That said, the food was amongst the best we had during our entire trip. The Slovak wine selection was equally as well enjoyed..Try the Matysak Rulandske Modre red. It goes down a treat with the roast wild boar on offer.
If you are planning a visit in the summer then make sure you also divert off to Cierny Balog, an hour or so's drive though beautiful rural scenery.to the north west, There you can take a ride on the delightful antique narrow gauge steam railway, originally built to haul timber out of the forests.
