Prešov city surroundings

Šariš (Hungarian: Sáros, German: Scharosch, Ukrainian: Шариш, Latin: Sarossiensis) is Slovak region and tourism region (full name Šariš region of tourism). The region is divided into Horný Šariš with its centre in Bardejov, and Dolný Šariš with its centre in Prešov.

In the younger Iron Age, the Celts expanded in this territory. This important ethnic group laid the foundations for ore mining and taught the original inhabitants of this territory to process metals. After the Celts, the oldest name of the territorySAOURIS has been preserved,which loosely translated means “high hill above the water”. The Celts named this region very accurately as they saw it back then. Natural etymological development helped shape today’s Šariš region. This name is several centuries older than the well-known LAUGARICIO in Trenčín. The settlement, from which the permanent settlement of this territory developed, dates from the 6th – 7th century and is documented by archaeological finds. In the past, the castle hill belonged to the seat of administration in the Middle Ages until 1647, then Prešov became the centre of the region. The city became an economic and cultural centre and, along with Košice, was one of the most important settlements in north-eastern Kingdom of Hungary. Today it does not lag behind and represents the centre not only of the Šariš region but also of the entire Prešov Region. In addition to its rich history and many historical, cultural and technical monuments, the city is also known for the fact that it takes you only a short trip to find exceptional places, towns, but also unique monuments of a global dimension.

The Salt Plant city district hides a unique Salt museum, The Salt Plant, which is a national cultural monument and is one of the most important technical monuments in Slovakia. A unique complex of technical facilities for pumping and cooking salt from brine dates back to the 17th century. The facilities for rock salt mining and brine pumping in The Salt Plant include in particular the shaft Leopold, brine storage),smelter, brewery, salt warehouse (chambers), blacksmith workshops and a tower. The name of the museum is no coincidence, since one of the rarest Geoparks in Slovakia stretches above The Salt Plant Geopark Slánske vrchy .This site offers the beauty of an untouched nature, history and a world class uniqueness, such as Opal Mines . On the opposite side to the Slánské vrchy hills to the northwest, you will find a unique history of the region and the second largest castle in Slovakia Šariš Castle, with the town of the same name. Next to it you will find the village Lačnov hidden by meadows full of herbs. Near it you can spot an anomaly  you have never heard about and a cave called Zlá diera (literal translation: Bad hole), located near Lačnov pass. It is impossible to mention everything worth seeing; nevertheless you can find all the information in our tourist attractions of the Saris region.
