Photographer's Note

Last weekend I finally managed to visit Bardejov, the town I've heard so much about. Well worth to stop there for, at least, couple of hours. They say, it is "the most gothic town in Slovakia", "the real pearl of Central European Gothic and Renaissance". And i must agree, Bardejov is absolutely charming. Its rectangular square paved with cobblestones flanked on three sides with colourful burgher houses, the St. Egidius' church and the Town Hall (presented here) is a true gem.

The earliest written record about Bardejov dates back to 1241. In 1376 it was promoted to the status of free royal town. The "Golden Age" of Bardejov fell on the XVth century, when the town became a center of trade in the area.
