Monuments Board - logoThe Banská Štiavnica branch office of the Banská Bystrica Regional Centre of the Monuments Board of the Slovak Republic carries out the state supervision of the protection of the monuments on the territory of the district of Banská Štiavnica and part of the district of Žarnovica. The town of Banská Štiavnica is its seat.

The main activity of the office is to direct the activities of citizens in saving, renovating, restoring and correctly using 264 immovable and 314 movable cultural monuments and conservation areas in the district of Banská Štiavnica and part of the district of Žarnovica.
