The bicycling season starts and we invite you to a small trip. We start our biking trip near the village of Vrícko, close to a guest house, where there is a green tourist sign. From here we cross the forest around the hollow rock to the saddle below Kycera, then continue along the red tourist trail through the meadow through Janková, then through Skalky to Vríčanske Klippe. Throughout the time we have beautiful views of the Turčianska basin, the Rajecká basin and the surrounding Fatra and Tatra mountains or the Klak hill. Again from Vríčanske Klippe we go down the forest to the yellow tourist sign to the crossroads Bak, from there we follow the green trail back along the Vríca creek through the valley to the parking lot at the beginning of the aforementioned guest house, where we started the biking trip. On the way we managed to capture the amazing beauty of spring nature, which we will share with you in the following pictures.

We have good news for all lovers of cycling and cycling! Recently, two interesting cycle books were published mapping somewhat unusual routes around Slovakia.
This year's biking season is in full swing and cyclists can look forward to the next year's All to the Fable competition, which has just begun.
Today we visit Lower Turiec, more precisely the city of Turany, which lies less than 11 kilometers from the capital of Slovak culture - Martin.
Beautiful Turčianska basin hides many picturesque places and natural beauty. One of them is the village of Sklené, which lies at the southern tip of the Turiec region in the Turčianské Teplice district.
Both hot springs and thermal spas have long been considered only as a resting place for older people who come here to treat illnesses through the healing properties of mineral or thermal waters. But hot springs have changed today and are much more than just a spa, offering comprehensive wellness stays for all ages.
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.
Today we will take you to the picturesque region of Turiec, more precisely to the village of Blatnica, which boasts not only important archaeological finds (eg Blatnice sword), castle and chateau, but also famous personalities and beautiful surrounding nature.
Turciany village, as a part of the region of Turca is being called, hides many natural beauties, folk traditions, and sights. Today we visit one of the largest villages in Turciany – Mosovce. They offer all three beauties at one place..
Mountainous Slovakia abounds with countless beautiful hills. Only the mountaineers or alpine tourists can get to the very highest ones. However, there are many hills that are accessible by bike.
One of the most beautiful parts of Slovakia, is situated between the mountains Velká and Malá Fatra. From the north it bordered by a national cultural city of Slovaks – Martin and from the south by Turčianské Teplice, spa town. The area or region is called Turčianská kotlina (basin), in older sources known as Turčianská zahrádka (garden).
In today's journey, we will visit the Slovak town lying in the Turčianské Teplice, which is, in addition to the function of the district capital, an important spa, cultural, and historical center of the region. Come along with us to Turčianské Teplice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Last week we climbed Velky Rozsutec and intentionally walked around Janosik’s Holes (Janosikove Diery). This phenomena is so beautiful and unique we must devote one entire article to describe them. So today we see the most popular and most well-known tourist attraction in the Mala Fatra National Park.
The Mala Fatra mountains, north Slovakia, is a popular destination for holidaymakers. The Mala Fatra is mostly covered by dense forests, the highest mountains of this range are bare. Mincol is a well-known mountain of the Mala Fatra. The mountain is inseparable from the Lucanska part of the range.
The Mala Fatra is a known and renown area. We hardly need to introduce it to you. This mountain range, along the High, Western, and Low Tatras, is considered one of the most beautiful and most visited mountain ranges in Slovakia. In the article today, we take you on a winter hike onto the main ridge of the Mala Fatra and its second highest peak of Maly Krivan.
