about bardejov:
Bardejov is dominated by the monumental church of St. Aegidius, mentioned for the first time in 1247. A three nave basilica with multiple chapels was completed by the 15th century. It hosts eleven precious Gothic winged altars with panel paintings. The central square (Slovak: Radničné námestie), which used to be the town’s medieval marketplace, is now surrounded by well-preserved Gothic and Renaissance burghers’ houses. One of the most interesting buildings is the town hall, built in 1505. The lower part was built in the Gothic style, while the upper part is already in the Renaissance style. The fortification system from the 14th and 15th centuries is listed by the European Fund of Cultural Heritage as one of the most elaborate and best preserved medieval fortifications in Slovakia.
Bardejov is also an important spa town. The therapeutic mineral water springs help people with oncological, blood circulation, and digestive tract problems. The old spa complex, not far from the center of Bardejov, also hosts an open air museum of folk architecture.
