Majestic Babia Mountain is rightfully referred to as "the Queen of Orava". It is to be found on Slovak-Polish border and it is Slovakia’s northernmost point. It is also one of the most visited mountains in the region. Except for beautiful vistas it offers picturesque nature and diverse fauna and flora.

Last week we went together on an excursion to the parish church which we left for the House of Culture. This beautiful and modern building offers spaces for cultural events, concerts or discussions.
Last week we learned the history of the privileged Orava town of Trstena, and today we will do some sightseeing for we will visit sacral buildings, architectural treasures and modern sights. We will even take you to one beautiful place of pilgrimage.
We recently visited a charming Orava town near the Polish border. In the upper part of the Orava Basin, in the valley of the Oravice River, lies the village of Trstená, which pleasantly surprised us with its many unique monuments, interesting history, remarkable personalities and a kind of uplifting atmosphere.
Today we are heading to the Namestovo district, where the picturesque Krusetnice village spans at the confluence of the White Orava River and the Klinianka Stream. The village surrounded by the Podbeskydy Highlands invites visitors to a tour of traditional houses, a beautiful Baroque church and even a ski resort. Yet we today will take you to a unique museum where you smell the irresistible aroma of coffee.
Today, in the village of Trstená, we can see the dominants of Milan Rastislav Štefánik Square. We start with the Franciscan monastery, which was built between 1776 and 1780. Until now, he has been architecturally modified several times, but he does not detract from his beauty.
This year's winter offers us wonderful weather and plenty of snow. That is why today we invite you for a winter hiking trip to the second highest peak of Oravská Magura - Kubínská hoľa (1,346 m above sea level), which is a popular destination for all the highest winter sports.
After 40 years, the folk song and music culture of the distinctive North Slovak region comes to life, in the form of a supplemented release of the legendary album Orava.
In the western foothills of the Roháče Mountains, you will find the village of Zuberec in a picturesque valley. In addition to trips to the mountains, it also attracts the extensive open-air museum of the Orava Village Museum and the Brest Cave. Let's go here together and look into the history of the Orava region.
Orava Castle, is one of Slovakian icons, is known by almost everyone, but only a few know about the remarkable village below. Oravský Podzámok is not only the gateway to one of the most beautiful castles in Slovakia, but also offers a number of interesting architectural gems and attractions.
Today we visit the Orava region to Klin town (near the district town of Namestovo). A projection that split two rivers gave the village its name. It is an ideal place to start your trips to the surroundings. Nevertheless, the village is also an interesting place on its own.
Picturesque Oravian town of Hrustin is located in the middle between Namestov and Dolni Kubin. Our loyal readers truly know it very well.
Our steps today head to Horna Orava, to a small swamp lake that is of large cultural and natural importance.
We conclude our tour in Orava in Jasenova village which is situated in a small basin close to Vysny Kubin. Among its buildings you can get glimpses of distant past as you may find here some unique historic landmarks. We are going to tell you more about them on the following lines.
Last week we visited the quiant village of Lestiny. The village boasts a UNESCO sight. However, today we move about one kilometer to Vysny Kubin, a village in Orava region.
This time we go to Dolny Kubin, a district in Orava region. We decided to see some beautiful villages which are significant for their sights, important historic figures, or are simply great places to start a tour into the surroundings.
One sunny day we came to a decision that we need to get out of summer heat in the city. We packed our things and left Bratislava for north of the country, for Orava. As we are not particularly physically fit and we did not want to visit many tourist we chose Prislop saddle to be the destination.
Autumn is the most colorful season of the year and the best for tourism. You need to count on early sunsets but the sun is not so hot. Therefore, we decided to go up into the mountains.
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.
In today article we will take you to the picturesque Oravian town of Hruštín. There is unique architecture, interesting dialect, many sport attractions and last, but not least, also beautiful nature of the Central Beskydy.
Do you belong among winter sports lovers? Also, you can not imagine a winter holiday without a good snow and well-maintained slopes? Although, I have to admit that in recent years we go with a group on skiing for one week. Usually, we go abroad, but the Slovak mountains, we did not forgot about. My favorite places have been for years the Kysuce and Orava regions.
Few weeks ago there was an interesting event in picturesque Hrustin, a town in Orava, called the Hrustinska Prevodovka, which we didn’t want to miss. What we have seen and experienced will be revealed on the lines below.
