European Quartet One Melody

 
This small picturesque town, lying in the middle of Stiavnicke Vrchy Mountains, originates from several mining hamlets. Several local houses, and above all the beautiful mountain lakes called tajchy’ are reminders of its mining past.
Most of the artificial lakes were founded in the 18th century to the designs of local scholars, J. K. Hell and S. Mikovíni. Through a sophisticated system, the lake water was transported to mines where it drove the water wheels and mining facilities. The dominant feature of the commune is the monastic complex with its 18th century church. In its Baroque interior, a remarkable Rococo organ features statues of miners.
