I visited this WHS in September 2014. While driving round Lesser Poland, close to the Slovak border, I couldn't resist the temptation of visiting the nearby WHS of Bardejov as a half day trip. The first thing I saw as I approached this town was the restored small bastion and the remaining city walls. The core of this WHS lies in Radničné námestie or Town Hall Square. The Basilica of St. Egidius is worthwhile visiting, mostly for the spectacular views from the bell tower. This was definitely the highlight of my trip as I could appreciate how most of the medieval layout remained intact. That said, it carries quite an expensive price tag for what you get to see (2.50e to visit the church, an additional 1.50e to climb the bell tower and an extra 2.00e for photography). The town hall in the middle of the square now houses a museum. Once I saw the town hall square I immediately felt that Bardejov was really quite similar to Gouda in the Netherlands. Perhaps I was getting hungry and so to make sure this was no longer the case I stopped to have a light snack at one of the square's cafeterias. All in all I'm happy I visited this WHS but I wouldn't have bothered had it not been so close to other WHS in the South of Poland.
