1 or 2 nights in Banska Bystrica?

Has anyone been to this town? Wife and I are planning to visit BB on the way (via bus) from Budapest to Krakow. I've read both that it is a gem worth a day or two, and also that you can see it in just a few hours, or even less. Even if the sights can be seen quickly, we could still have a nice day hiking or bicycling, if it is good for those activities. I'm curious about what people think who have been there, or anyway have heard something about the place. Thank you

Been there and enjoyed it. For me it works to arrive late morning and depart late afternoon the next day.

I love Slovakia. Lots of good places to see. Still, if I didnt have 3 days and transportation I would take the new LOT non stop from Krakow to Budapest (under $100). If you have the time, and a few more dollars hire a guide with a car. You might contact Hana: http://vasvarirentals.com/img/partners/slovakia.pdf
