“That’s why we hope this tool will entice and inspire a later personal visit, which can help domestic tourism,” she said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

She said that since this function was released at www.unesconadosah.sk, the most visited site is the Dobšinská ice cave, followed by Spiš Castle and the Jasovská cave.

KRT has prepared an attractive virtual tour of less-known places as well. They have also prepared a colouring map that after printing and folding measures 40x90 centimetres.
