Kremnica is best known for being the home of the oldest, still-working mint production in the world. Oh and it literally sits on top of a mountain of gold! If that doesn’t get your heart racing, however, the drive towards the city is one of absolute beauty. Swirling roads through the mountains, forests, valleys and typical Slovak villages. Once you reach Kremnica, you are not allowed by car within the ancient city walls, so you will need explore the town by foot. The square of Kremnica is the highlight of city, loomed over by its quirky castle.
