Kremnica-mincovňa

Kremnica is a town in central Slovakia located in the district of Žiar nad Hronom. It has just over 5,000 inhabitants, but it is still very important. Why? Kremnica has the oldest mint in the world. Gold and silver have been mined in Kremnica since the 10th century, which is why Kremnica is also very rich in history.

In addition to the mint, you can also find a nice town castle or even the Museum of gait. There are also various important sporting and cultural events. Kremnica really offers a lot of Slovak tourists.

Town Castle

In the area of the town castle you can also find the church of St. Katrina. You will certainly be interested in the tower from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of the whole Kremnica.
