Details The Official Blister 2015 contains a full set of circulating euros (1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 cents and 1, 2 euros), along will a medal. The folder is part of a series dedicated to the UNESCO World Heritage in Slovakia, this time honoring the city of Vlkolínec.

Vlkolínec is a picturesque town founded in the fourteenth century and, since 1882 , it merged with Ružomberok. It is a world heritage site since 1993, and one of ten Slovak villages that have earned the title of "protected village." This honor is due to the fact of showing an architectural folklore virtually intact, one of the few of the Carpathians north. The city also boasts a wooden belfry of the eighteenth century, which is also protected.

The design of the Slovak coins was selected by public vote, where more than 140,000 people participated. The most popular design was the Coat of arms of Slovakia (33,068 votes), followed by the Krivan peak (24,589 votes) and the Bratislava Castle (21,792 votes).
