How to get to the Calvary by car

For starting the tour of Calvary, we reccommend to start at the Calvary Infocenter which is placed just 80 meters from the first chapel and has parking as well.   To arrive there follow the main road from the direction of Sv. Anton, (Lesnícka street), and turn left at “Pod Kalváriou” street. Don´t forget to take free parking ticket in the infocenter and visit it´s interesting exhibition about Calvary.

The other access is also possible from side of the Calvara via Hájik street. Coming from Banská Belá or Žarnovica, it is the first street in Banska Stiavnica on the left side, just before the hill starts to slope into the city. From there you can get to the Lower church where, in case the weather is fine, is opened small exhibition as well.

The directional signs with the logo and inscription“KALVÁRIA“ placed on poles along the road will help you on the way.
