Považská Bystrica 
Attraction highlighting: Maninska tiesnava

vráť ma na začiatok strany

Povazska Bystrica is a town with rich historical background. The first written reference comes from July 13th 1330 and it can be found in the official document in the village of Hronsky Sv. Benadik. This document shows the borders of the village called Trstie and indicates the way to Bystrica in Latin like this: “IN VIAM PUBLICAM, CUM QUA ITUR IN BISTRICIAM”.

It looks like a newly built town because of its extensive reconstruction and modernisation in the seventies. Even though the older inhabitants remember the past appearance of Povazska Bystrica, they are equally proud of this town which boasts plenty of facilities and green spaces.
