Bardejov Town

Bardejov town is a well preserved and complete fortified medieval trading town which developed in the Middle Ages on one of the most important trading routes across the Carpathians. It is situated in the North-East of Slovakia, among the hills of the Beskyd Moutains. Being one of the most important points on the road from Poland to Hungary, a customs office was established here. The early phases of fortification date from the mid 14th century. The Town Hall, built in the early 16th century, was the first building in Slovakia to have Renaissance stone moulding.  Other interesting sites include the Gothic Humanistic Grammar School, the municipal wine house, the merchants’ houses, synagogues and other buildings reflecting Jewish heritage – ritual baths, a kosher slaughterhouse and a meeting building.
