Banská Bystrica is a city in Central Slovakia.

. . . Banská Bystrica . . .

Banská Bystrica is in central Slovakia between the national parks Great Fatra and Low Tatras (north of the city), the national park Poľana (east of the city), and the Štiavnické Vrchy (southwest of the city). Banská Bystrica is the capital of Banská Bystrica region (kraj) and the department(okres) of the same name. It has approximately 78,000 inhabitants.

Banská Bystrica is serviced by 48.640731219.14108091 Sliač Airport (SLD IATA).  The airport is 15 km from Banská Bystrica, however, there are no regular passenger flights, only charters.

The closest international airports are Budapest (200 km), Bratislava (205 km) and Vienna (260 km).

If you are flying from Vienna, work out the connections well. A mid-afternoon flight from Vienna (at about 15:00) probably involves leaving Banská Bystrica on the 06:27 train or a bus between 07:00 and 08:00. It is also possible to take the 08:27 train to Bratislava and reach Vienna airport for a mid-afternoon flight, but this leaves little time buffer.

Transport to Budapest is relatively complicated with no direct bus or train. As of summer 2015, it was not possible to make it with less than 2 transfers (significantly bypassing the shortest route).
