|This BU Set is dedicated to the World cultural heritage UNESCO in Slovakia - Bardejov. Bardejov
The historical gem of eastern Slovakia, Bardejov is today mainly known for its outstanding old town square. Historically its real birth originated in a royal plan to revive an area raided by Mongols up to the 13th century. Over the next hundred years, the town was enriched materially by an influx of German colonists invited by the king, and fortified militarily – both of which set the tone for the town’s appearance up to the present.
