There soon will be spring. And a new tourist season as well. Please accept our invintation for this slightly difficult yet beautiful climb to one of the most beautiful summits in Slovakia – Velky Choc.
Last week we started our tour in the historical core of Liptovsky Mikulas, the alleged entrance gate to the Liptov Region. Despite bad weather, we saw many sights and places we tell you about today.
Couple of kilometers from Liptovsky Hradok, a town we saw last week, there is Liptovsky Mikulas – a district town, social and cultural center of the Liptov region. Today we take a tour in this town.
After our visit in Kalameny village we remain in the Liptov region. We move couple of kilometers to the smallest town of Liptov. It is rich, however, on natural, cultural and historical sights. The town we talk about is Liptovsky Hradok.
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.
The actions of local museum influence even the present. There are many lectures on various subjects, educational and memorial programs, workshops and classes of traditional handcrafts.
Our vacation got little bit ugly due to cold and rainy weather. This was why our initial goal was almost abandoned. We wanted to enjoy biking and walks in beautiful nature.
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.
If you belong to those who cannot imagine a summer without swimming and having fun in the water and you do not like crowded swimming pools or water parks and rather prefer swimming in lakes, ponds, rivers or ponds, you certainly know Liptovska Mara.
We returned to our car upon a walk in Liptovsky Mikulas. Before we set off to see other destinations of our trip we took a look into the map. Other two places appeared interesting enough to visit them.
The Liptov region in central Slovakia is very diverse. Every year it lures many visitors. It is thanks to its beautiful nature, very diverse in fact. Except for tourist and bicycle trails it has a lot of beauty left in the underground. There are also thermal springs or you can learn a lot of about history there. Also people loving adrenaline will enjoy it.
If you will travel through north road-line from west to the east of Slovakia (or vice versa) and will not be in a hurry, and would like to reflect on, which sightseeings will be worth to visit (or where you wish to have a rest for relax), so we have one reference for you: would you leave the highway at exit Liptovsky Hrádok and drive in direction to Pribylina.
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.
