Zilina Overview

Near the Czech and Polish borders in north-west Slovakia, Ilina is about 200 kilometers from Bratislava.


The word ila is derived from Slavic/Slovak, meaning “(river) vein.” There are many watercourses in Ilina, hence the name. Alternately, it may be derived from the word of the local population, Žilín/Žiliňane.


The area surrounding today’s Ilina dates back to the late Stone Age (around 20,000 BC). Slavs from the 5th century onwards populated the region. However, it was in 1208 that the first written reference to Ilina was made as Terra de Salinan. It was a part of the Kingdom of Hungary from the second half of the 10th century until 1918.

During the 13th century, the Cseszneky de Milvány family owned terra, Sylva. According to records, the city was already a town by 1312 when it started developing around 1300. During the reign of King Charles I, Ilina was made a free royal town. King Louis I issued Privilegium pro-Slavis on 7 May 1381, allocating half of the city council seats to Slavs to make them equal to Germans. As a result of the Hussite attacks in 1431, the town was burned.

It was a center of manufacturing, trade, and education during the 17th century, and many monasteries and churches were built, including Budatin Castle, during the Baroque era. In the Revolutions of 1848, Slovak volunteers, members of the Imperial Army, defeated Hungarian honveds and gardists near the city.

A new railway track was constructed in the second half of the 19th century, which led to the city’s boom: the Kassa Oderberg Railway was finished in 1872 and the Bratislava Railway in 1883, and new factories began to appear, including Slovenia (1991) and Pozsony (1992).).

In October 1918, it was one of the first municipalities to sign the Martin Declaration, and it served as the seat of the Slovak government until March 1919. The autonomy of Slovakia within Czechoslovakia was declared in Ilina on 6 October 1938, shortly after the Munich Agreement.


Ilina lies at an altitude of 342 meters (1,122 ft) above sea level and covers an area of 80.03 square kilometers (30.9 square mi). This city is situated in the Upper Váh region of Slovak: Horné Povaie, at the confluence of three rivers: Váh flowing from the east towards the south-west, Kysuca flowing from the north, and Rajanka flowing from the south in the Ilina Basin. There are four mountain ranges surrounding the city: Malá Fatra, Súľovské vrchy, Javorníky, and Kysucká archiving. Malá Fatra National Park and the Kysuce Protected Landscape Area are just a few protected areas nearby. The Váh river has two hydroelectric dams around Ilina: the Ilina dam in the east and the Hričov dam in the west.


Italian has a continental climate with four distinct seasons, lying in the north temperate zone. There is a significant difference between hot summers and cold, snowy winters. A typical July temperature is 18°C (64°F), while a specific January temperature is four °C (25°F). Most of the rainfall occurs in June and the first half of July. A year’s snow cover lasts between 60 and 80 days.


The coat of arms of Ilina consists of a golden double cross (also known as the Lorraine cross) with roots and two golden stars. In the Cyrillic-methodic tradition, the double-cross originated in Byzantium. In addition to being among the oldest municipal coats of arms in Slovakia, it is also one of the oldest in Europe. Symbolizing the city since 1378, it has been used for centuries.


Ilina has 82,664 residents (as of September 2020), 108,114 in the urban area, and 159,729 in the metro area. 96.9% of the population was Slovak, 1.6% Czech, 0.2% Romani, 0.1% Hungarian, and 0.1% Moravian, according to the 2001 census. 74.9% of the population is Roman Catholic, 16.7% are non-religious, and 3.7% are Lutherans.


Žilina is a central industrial hub in the upper Váh basin, with a fast-growing economy as north-west Slovakia’s business center and a significant retail and construction industry.

Among the state’s biggest employers is Korean car manufacturer Kia Motors. Up to 3,000 employees worked at the plant by 2009. By 2009, 300,000 cars were produced a year. Kia Motors has invested more than 1.5 billion USD in its car plant in Ilina. Among the car models produced at the Ilina car plant in 2009 were the Kia Cee’d, Kia Sportage, and Hyundai ix35. The company plans to invest US$200 million in upgrading its production capacity to produce engines for a sister company, Hyundai, in the Czech Republic.

Ilina is also home to one of the most extensive construction and transportation engineering companies in Slovakia, Vahostav. Paper maker Tento and Povaské chemické závody are both assigned to the chemical industry. A Siemens Mobility engineering center is also located in Celina.

A team from the Slovak Extraliga plays hockey for MsHK Hilina. Currently, they have one domestic title under their belt. The best rugby club in Slovakia plays in the Slovak league.


A mayor (Slovak: primátor) and a city council govern the city (Slovak: mestské zastupiteľstvo). A mayor serves for a four-year term as the head of the town and its chief executive. In the position of major, Peter Fiabáne is currently in charge. The council comprises 31 councilors representing the city in the legislative branch. During the last municipal election in 2014, councilors were elected to four-year terms concurrent with the mayors.


There are seven faculties at the University of Ilina, with 12,402 students, including 625 doctoral students.

There are 18 public primary schools, one private primary school, and three church primary schools. There are 7,484 pupils enrolled in the school. In addition to the city’s secondary education system (most middle schools and all high schools), there are eight gymnasia with 3,514 students, ten specialized high schools with 3,696 students, and nine vocational schools with 4,870 students.

Roads and railways connect the city to Bratislava and Prievidza in the south, Ada in the north, and Martin in the east. Toward Ilina, the D1 and D3 motorways are being constructed, as well as their feeders.

Approximately 10 kilometers (6 miles) outside of the city center is the international Ilina Airport.

DPMZ operates public transportation within the city, which includes buses (since 1949) and trolleybuses (since 1994).

There is only a one-night bus route in Ilina, the 50, which runs from 22:55 to 04:22. It was the first-night bus route to operate in the city since 1970. In addition to traversing all major residential areas, Route 50 stops at the central railway station, elezniná stanica.

15 Best Things to Do in Žilina (Slovakia)

  1. Mariánske Námestie (St Mary’s Square)

    – The city’s main square is a place of grandeur and has played an integral part in city life for centuries. On the ground floor, the street is bounded by houses with traditional roofs and continuous arcades.
  2. Church of the Holy Trinity

    – Having been destroyed by fire three times, the cathedral’s story echoes that of Ilina. Despite the recent reconstruction, its two emblematic spires remain charming, even though not everything is historic inside.
  3. Church of The Conversion of St Paul the Apostle

    – Built-in 1754, its pair of 32-meter towers break through the low townhouses on the west side of Mariánske Námestie. The choir of this building faces west rather than east, which is an interesting titbit about its design.
  4. Budatín Castle

    – From the 15th century to the end of the Second World War, only two families owned the building, the Suggs and the Csákys.
  5. Považie Museum

    – A branch of a history and culture museum is housed within the castle’s interior and, like the rest of the building, has been renovated since 2006. The “tinker” collection of over 5,000 ornaments crafted from metallic wire and sheet metal is among the show-stopping attractions.
  6. Neological Synagogue

    – Built between 1928 and 31 for the Neolog Faction, the liberal Jewish community of Ilina. This is an essential building, both architecturally and because it was the last new synagogue built before the war.
  7. Church of St Barbara

    – The Franciscan order constructed this handsome Baroque church and its minor monastery in the first decades of the 18th century. Although the facade is pleasing, the pulpit, altarpieces, and statues inside make it worth seeing.
  8. Old Town Hall

    – The Old Town Hall was updated in the 1990s along with most of Mariánske Námestie. Gothic vaults in the building’s cellars date back to the early 16th century.
  9. Babušek’s House

    – This stately Historicist house in the center of Ilina has seen its share of important visitors. Initially built in the late 1800s, Babueks House is named after the wealthy family that created it.
  10. Považská Galéria Umenia Žilina

    – On Andrej Hlinka square, which has a panoramic view of the neighboring mountains, is a fine Neoclassical building that houses the city’s gendarme station. During the intervening years, it housed a vocational school, the State Police, and the newspaper’s editorial offices.
  11. Strečno Castle

    – This magnificent castle can be reached by traveling east towards the Malá Fatra mountains, passing through a loop in the Váh that is walled by 100-meter-high calcite cliffs. In days gone by, this castle was a toll station that commanded that gorge.
  12. Lietava Castle

    – Within 15 kilometers of the city, medieval historians will find another impressive medieval stronghold. A rugged ridge in the mountains to the south holds Lietava Castle.
  13. Žilina Dam

    – A hydrological plant was built on the River Váh east of the city in the 1990s to supply water to industrial facilities. Several districts in the town were flooded, and residents were relocated to Nová Mojšová Lúčka.
  14. Žilinský Lesopark

    – A sizeable old-growth forest with trails awaits you just beyond the city’s southern outskirts. Portions of the Ilinsk Lesopark merge with local arable farms, so occasionally, you’ll get a widescreen view of the Malá Fatra mountains across a rolling landscape.
  15. Aupark

    – If the weather turns bad or you’re just up for some shopping, Žilina has a sizeable mall south of the old town. Besides H&M, Mango, Levi’s, and an assortment of restaurants, including international fast food chains like Subway, Aupark is open every day from 9:00 to 21:00.
