Off the Beaten Path in Europe
Europe is my favorite continent; in fact, I wish I had a whole lifetime that I could devote just to exploring it because, to me, every corner holds something worth discovering.

Beautiful mining town in a crater ....

Large arrow left

Banska Stiavnica is a beautiful little mining town 4 hours by bus from Bratislava. The drive through the forest and winding roads is a treat for the eyes. I wanted to take photos at every turn, but decided to just soak in the view.

There are a good number of cafes and bars there that give off a good vibe. I managed to visit 4 in my 24 hours there and they were all great. Nice wine, coffee and food.
