SK, Liptovský Ján – A Bike Trip to Javorie Klippe
The cycling season is slowly over, but we still set out on a beautiful cycling tour surrounded by mountains. Our starting point was perhaps one of the most beautiful, historically, touristly and architecturally important villages of Liptov - Liptovský Ján.
Liptovský Ján offers many castles, curia, but also thermal spas, natural attractions (thermal spring Kaďa, caves) and indescribable views (from the local lookout tower or nearby hills). But we do not stay in the city, get on bikes and go to the magical Janska valley.
We pass local thermal pools, hotels and restaurants, even the area of Slovak cultural monuments (miniatures). We pass the nature trail, past wells, monuments or ski resort. The road runs along the Štiavnica River, which springs on the northeast slope of Ďumbier and flows into the Váh River. Our clue was a crossroad at the mouth of Staničovské valley.
The path meanders in places, surrounded by forests, but occasionally you can also see the majestic mountains. Gradually we get to the crossroads in Před Bystrou (there is a hunting lodge). We leave the blue-marked hiking trail and follow the red trail. So far road cycling has suddenly turned into mountain.
After quite a difficult climb we get to the tourist shelter. Here we leave our bicycles (which you should definitely lock) and head for the hiking trail approximately 50 meters away. The following route leads through a well-visible and paved path, and there are several climbs awaiting us, the difficulty of which is reduced by the views of the massive rock gorges. The peak of our efforts is the Javorie saddle (1 487 m above sea level), where a signpost informs us about other possibilities (ascent to the hills of Krakova hoľa, Tanečnica, etc.).
However, for time reasons we do not continue, we turn and go back. Along the way we enjoy views of the countryside, which is unfortunately sometimes devastated. Nevertheless, we consider this part cycling trip excellent.
The route from the crossroads at the mouth of the Stanišovská vallye to the crossroads in front of Bystrou takes about 30 minutes, then to the saddle Javorie it can handle the more skilled in an hour and a few minutes. The total elevation is just over 800 meters.

We have good news for all lovers of cycling and cycling! Recently, two interesting cycle books were published mapping somewhat unusual routes around Slovakia.
Today we visit the district of Liptovský Mikuláš, more precisely two picturesque Liptov villages, which are located near the highway D1 (exit Liptovský Hrádok).
Liptov is one of the most visited regions in Slovakia and we will follow in the following weeks in the footsteps of distinctive Liptov villages, which still live in traditions and offer several sights. And we start in Vazec.
After a visit to Vazec, today we move a little further to the neighboring village Východná. This Liptov village has been associated with the biggest Slovak folklore festival, which has been held here since 1953 for decades.
We enjoyed several days in the Low Tatras despite the fact that weather was not good. Excited tourist and a man who loves mountain is hard to discourage, especially with only few rain drops that bring with them nice smell of mountain air. Our goal today was a tourist view platform above Pavcina Lehota town.
We will continue the series of articles about Liptov municipalities today. This time we will visit the village of Hybe, which was made famous by Martin Ťapák's movie 1975 - Pacho, the outlaw of Hybe.
Today we will take you to the district of Liptovský Hrádok - Dovalov. It was administratively attached to this charming town in 1971, although its size is larger than Hrádok itself.
This year's biking season is in full swing and you can look forward to the next year's All on Fairy Tale competition, which is already underway. This non-traditional cycling competition combines cycling and exploring interesting places with the help of a mobile application, so that really anyone can take part. All you have to do is have a bike and the desire to discover.
Today we take you to a place surrounded by untouched nature where you can relax from the rushed everyday reality. We will set out to the picturesque Low Tatras, more precisely to the village of Magurka, which is part of the village Partizánská Ľupča.
In the fourth part of our series about the safety on the mountains, we focus on morphologically related to mountains, and therefore we will focus on the Western and low Tatra. Their bedrock consists mainly of alumina surface, but not only part of Roháče and the section of Ďumbier - Chopok.
Today we visit the third most highly located mountain cottage in Slovakia – Stone Cottage Below Chook. Many people who love our mountains know it just as Kamienka.
One never gets bored in the Low Tatras. From spring to fall, tourists that like short or long trips in beautiful Tatranian nature go there. In winter, there are myriads of skiers and snowboarders, that just love ski slopes in the Low Tatras. Today, we take you to a place you should visit regardless the season.
Join us for a easy tour around beautiful Vrbicke pleso. From there you will experience interesting view of the Low Tatras.
Those who love nature will sure agree with my following statement – the end of summer and beginning of autumn is the best period for tourism. Everything seems more beautiful and more quite because the tourist season is long gone and the winter season haven’t even began. Nature changed its clothes to more colorful one and you can see animals where you wouldn’t expect them – right on a tourist pathway.
The Low Tatras are beautiful and majestic mountain range in the country of Slovakia. Many tourists like this area. All-day long trips are especially popular here. A very popular tourist destination is a distinctive mountain that dominates the eastern edge of the Low Tatras. It is Krolova Hola, the legendary guardian and subject of many folk songs.
There are many beautiful places in Slovakia. Among them is our largest and the second highest mountains, the Low Tatra mountains. If you seek not only beautiful nature but also quality services and quality accommodation, we have several tips for you.
Today we visit one of the most interesting towns in Liptov. It is interesting for its history, art, architecture, and nature. The town we talk about is Liptovsky Jan. The town is set in the mouth of Janska Valley at the Nizke Tatry.
After a week we are back to Liptov. This time I will not tempt the no crazy adrenaline games, on the contrary, I invite you to the museum. But not just any do! Underground beneath the towers, as this tiny museum in Liptovsky Jan name, conceals an engaging exhibition that will introduce you to a life full of coins from birth in the depths of the earth after its birth in the mint.
After a visit in a small yet very interesting museum called the Underground below the Towers in Liptovsky Jan. The museum is focused on coins from their very beginnings deep below surface until they are actually made in the mint. We quickly moved from Janska Valley to see this. The guide from Stanisovska Cave had been waiting for us there.
