Less than 8 kilometers east of the town of Martin lies the village Turčianské Jaseno. Its surroundings offer breathtaking views of the majestic Fatra Hills or far-reaching fields and forests. Add to this the colorful autumn and rolling mists, the result will be a magical or fairy-tale country resembling the world-famous Tuscany.
