UNESCO in Slovakia – Second round

UNESCO in Slovakia – Second round

In the first part of our new competition aired in January, we presented you the topic of our 2020 contest. Today, we literally start exploringthe UNESCO treasury. Until April, we will present you with several items of the Slovak tangible heritage of world importance. Welcome to the picturesque region of Banska Stiavnica.


Banska Stiavnica is literally a gold mine as to the number of monuments one can visit. If you were listening carefully, you can send us your answer to the question:

Who, which significant personality had descended to a mine in Banska Stiavnica in 18th century?

Send in your answers until the end of February to the address: englishsection@rtvs.sk or via regular post mail at: Radio Slovakia International, RTVS, Mlynska dolina, 845 45 Bratislava, Slovakia.

Good luck!
