The application is in Slovak and English languages and also has an audio version, the TASR newswire reported.

The application will provide to tourists and visitors all necessary information about the town and the surrounding region, including details about historical monuments and options for spending free time. The application works with Android phones, iPhones and iPads, Vojtášová said.

“On the basic menu, visitors will find town information, a current town map and cycling and hiking routes, as well as information about swimming pools, tennis courts, cultural sites and other attractions and facilities in our town and in the surrounding area,” Vojtášová said, as quoted by TASR.
