Bardejov



 

Located in north-eastern part of Slovakia, about 35 km north of Presov, Bardejov (German: Bartfeld, Hungarian: Bártfa, Polish: Bardiów) with its medieval town centre and cultural heritage monuments is one of the main tourist attractions in Slovakia.

The 14th century St Giles’ Church reminds us the town’s golden age lasting from the 14th to 15th century. The triple-nave basilica hides a European rarity – 11 late gothic wing altars with panel paintings, still installed in their original positions.

The church is situated on the northern part of the central, rectangular square, which is lined with restored burgher houses with characteristic high gabled roofs, pointing to their origins in the Middle Ages.

The focal point of the square is the town hall from the 16th century. It has gothic foundations, an upper floor with elements of Italian Renaissance and an interesting oriel staircase. The historical centre of the town, with its 131 national cultural monuments, is enclosed by exceptionally well preserved city fortifications.

The historical centre of Bardejov was added to UNESCO World Heritage List in 2000. Bardejov is also a spa town; the Bardejov Spa lies 4 km from the town.

Bardejov Spa mineral waters have effects, above all, to cure of the metabolism diseases and the respiratory system diseases.
