In the Mala Fatra, northern Slovakia. There are many tourist trail that go into various parts of this mountain range. Very interesting one is a hike going through north the Lucanske Mala Fatra. The trail starts near Ziline, at Visnova town. At the end of the village, we go on blue trail. This one will take us up to Mincol. During our tour we can also see Hoblik hill (934 m), a cone-shaped formation. Then we go to Mincol (1 364 m). Through there goes a ridge red trail. From Mincol, we go up north following the main ridge of the Mala Fatra, choose red trail. Then we climb across Uplaz (1 301 m), enter forest, and slowly descend to the saddle of Javorina. We continue on following the red trail. IT goes on the slope of Grun. We pass by the saddle of Rakytie and steeply descend to Strecno castle. The trek is really nice taking about 6 hour (the length is 17 kilometers). By the way, there beautiful panoramic vistas up form Mincol.

Tourism is great in winter as well. And this was our motto for our trip to the Mala Fatra Mountains and its peak Velky Rozsutec, the dominant sight of the mountain range.
Last week we climbed Velky Rozsutec and intentionally walked around Janosik’s Holes (Janosikove Diery). This phenomena is so beautiful and unique we must devote one entire article to describe them. So today we see the most popular and most well-known tourist attraction in the Mala Fatra National Park.
If you are among those who love nature, enthusiastic tourist, or winter sports lover, or mountain biking enthusiasts then you know that hills covered with woods, alpine meadows, and great ski slopes are the things that the Mala Fatra offers. And last but not least there are magnificent panoramas.
Today we once again visit Turcianska Garden surrounded by monumental Mala and Velka Fatra. We also visit Strane, a neighborhood in Martin city. At the terminus of a public transport line there is a beautiful protected climbing road.
The Mala Fatra mountains, north Slovakia, is a popular destination for holidaymakers. The Mala Fatra is mostly covered by dense forests, the highest mountains of this range are bare. Mincol is a well-known mountain of the Mala Fatra. The mountain is inseparable from the Lucanska part of the range.
Although winter for us this year is very generous in terms of snow, completely free of snow, we're just left. Although not all ski resorts have sufficient snowy, winter sports enthusiasts will certainly come into their own, mainly thanks to artificial snow.
Only couple of days ago, we celebrated All Souls’ Day. We symbolically lightened candles at cemeteries, silently remembered people we loved. Today, we visit a cemetery. It is not an ordinary cemetery, it is a National cemetery in the city of Martin.
Today we make a tour in the north-Slovakian city of Martin. In the first part, we introduce you to the places of public life, in the second part, we visit a historic center where we look at fascinating buildings and say something about history of institutes that reside there.
Last week we saw some of the less known sites in Martin, we return to its historic center today.
Martin is cultural as well as economical seat of Turiec, North Slovak Region. In 1994, the town was declared as Slovak Centre of National Culture. So, Martin became a very attractive target, not only for local tradition and its monuments.
Martin is the capital of the Turiec region. It is here where the institution, a pillar of culture in Slovakia and Slovak national consciousness resides, Matica Slovenska.
