St. Egidius Basilica

Reviewed By Johan S - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

A real monument with great works of art: the alter pieces with wings. The church pews are interesting too. Climbing the tower is a treat, because you can see the entire square - one of the most beautiful of the Chech and Slovak Republics.

Radnicne Namestie

Reviewed By Johan S - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The most beautiful square of the country. Best to climb the church tower, small fee, and see it from above. Houses are well preserved and restored. After 20.00h the square is not vey lively. None of the houses seems to be occupied. The shops are for tourists because the locals go to the shopping mall with supermarkets.

Icon Museum (Saris)

Reviewed By AdventurePhiles - Dallas, Texas

This is an absolute must. We had seen 10 churches by the time we visited and we were so enthralled by the icons in this museum. What a treasure to be able to see the beautiful art from the 1400s to the present.

Saris Museum - Town Hall

Reviewed By Johan S - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Excellent arranging of the show cases, a historic place, and free to go everywhere in the building. The only content-connected remark could be that to two main items no proper attention is given: that the town was settled, developed and governed by german speaking people, and the tremendous influence of the reformation. A good historian would have given these subjects better attention.

Bronze statue Kata

Although once knowing what this means it would be scaring, it tells the story and fact in medieval. It is a meaningful educational statue.

Holocaust Monument

Reviewed By Eva J - Kiev, Ukraine

There are several plaques on a wall of this outdoor memorial, explaining the history of Judaism in Bardejov. What struck me the most are the numbers: 4200 Jews of the city were deported during the war, only 300 returned afterward. Currently, there are 0 Jews in Bardejov. This memorial is around the corner from what used to be a Synagogue, which is now a hardware store. Awful.
This memorial lists the names of people from various towns in the area who were deported. You can see memorial stones left behind by other visitors, under the names. Over these names is the saying 'every person has a name' which is written in Hebrew, Slovak, and English. At one end of the memorial is a set of train tracks with the Star of David in between, with the words 'never again' also written in the three languages.

Una delle case più interessanti e che certamente si notano maggiormente nella piazza soprattutto per le decorazioni della facciata ed in particolare per l'affresco che raffigura l'Incoronazione della Vergine Maria. Molto affascinante.

Si trovano in juna zona del parco con le mura, molto conosciuta e frequentata. Non abbiamo potuto apprezzarla per le "performaance" ma dis era deve essere davvero bella per luci e musica. Per chi resta a dormire qui conviene approfittarne.

Saris Museum - Town Hall

Reviewed By Mitch_sky - Bologna, Italy

L'edificio si trova nel bel mezzo della piazza, proprio di fronte la Basilica ed è molto carino, soprattutto per alcuni particolari che si possono vedere anche dall'esterno.
In una paizza così bella ci sta bene.. Peccato che, quando siamo andati noi, un lato fosse coperto da un palco.
