Kremnica is a town in central Slovakia. This well-preserved medieval town was built above important gold mines and is the site of the oldest still-working mint in the world.
The town offers many famous and historical sites. A castle, which was built in the 13th through 15th centuries, towers over the town and represents a unique example of a very well preserved fortification system in Central Europe.  On the historical main square there is a monumental Baroque plague column and the Gothic Church of St. Catherine hosts the popular European Organ Festival.
