Kremnica with a population of about 6000 is in the Pohronie district, was one of the richest town of the Kingdom of Hungary.

Legend has it, that the King founded the city and granted it royal privileges, after he shot a partridge and found grains of gold in his throat.

The local streams contained grains of gold and rich veins of gold were discovered in the vicinity.

The Hungarian King King Charles Robert granted free royal and mining borough privileges and the township was established.

The first Hungarian coins were minted in the town.

Many of Europe's gold coins and medallions are still minted in the town, today.

Hui Chin and I had a good time exploring the town, the castle and the fortifications.

During our explorations we've heard a very beautiful and haunting music being broadcast from the nearby hills at midday.
