“It also includes hiking and tourist routes for pedestrians highlighted on maps, and maps of surrounding cycling routes,” Dutková continued. “Visitors can also find information on sports, relaxation and recreation. Cultural institutions in the city include contacts and opening hours,” she added.

The menu includes practical information as well, including important phone numbers, information on city transport, and a link to the city website. An interesting extra is the audio-guide available in both languages.

The mobile app can be downloaded for free via the App Store (devices with iOS - iPhone/ iPod/iPad) or through Google Play (devices with OS Android) after entering “Spišská Nová Ves”.
