DAY 2

Počúvadlo, hiking to Sitno hill & local brewery in Banská Štiavnica

After breakfast, we take a short drive just a few minutes from the center of Banská Štiavnica. First, we take a walk around the biggest mining lake in Slovakia – Počúvadlo. This lake is located right under the legendary hill of Sitno. To reach the top of the Sitno hill, we need to follow the blue marked trail, take a few steps on the wooden ladders and in a few minutes, we will be rewarded with fantastic views over Banska Stiavnica and its surrounding hills. There is a watch tower with a small bar, where we taste nice cold beer as a well-earned reward. Just 10 minutes from the top of the hill is a ruin of an old Sitno castle. Listen to the legend of the Sitno Knights, sleeping enchanted under the rock on Sitno hill waiting to be awakened to come out and help Slovaks whenever they are in most desperate need. This legendary volcanic hill plays a big role in our lives.

You can spend the evening as you wish, there is a perfect local brewery in the town of Banská Štiavnica. Here you will be served many different varieties of beer with long tradition – Lager, Weizen, Special Dark or Beer distillate – all made with special care.
