There is a beautiful town of Klastor pod Znievom under the northernmost peak of the Ziar mountains. Today we tell you more about this place and also we make a short trip to the surroundings.
Today we visit Lower Turiec, more precisely the city of Turany, which lies less than 11 kilometers from the capital of Slovak culture - Martin.
Should you travel to the town of Bojnice which is very popular, it is likely you will get to Prievidza, a town nearby. Many just ride through it without stopping. It is shame because there is a lot to see in this town central to its region.
After a while, we return to the village of Cicmany famous for its painted timbered houses. In 1977, this was the reason behind declaring it a folk architecture reserve. However, this is not the only interesting thing about this village near the Strazovske Vrchy.
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.
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.
A place great for relax and sports is at the edge of the city of Martin. Its Jedlovina Urban Forest, longtime place for relax, business meetings, tourism, or just hike in nature. We decided to visit it as well.
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.
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.
The town of Vrutky is located on the meeting point of the Turiec and Vah rivers. Vrutky is not a large town but there is lot to do for tourists and it has also rich history. Lets join us to explore the town at the edge of Turcianska basin.
Today we go to see the ruins of the second highest standing castle in Slovakia. We will tell you about its history and walk around it.
In previous parts of our series, we focused mainly alpine mountains. Today we focus on the mountains nearly 1000 m lower. We will talk about Small and Big Fatra. This height difference is reflected in the character of the climate of the mountains and therefore also on slightly different of risk of movement in this area.
More than six weeks, we have to you - our readers, bringing a series on safety in the mountains. Today, this series of these articles finishing. In the final part we will tell you what kind of risk you could meet on Small and Big Fatra in the summer time.
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.
