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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Unique region of Orava is one of the most beautiful yet most unwelcoming in Slovakia. We have visited it for many times in the past. This time we didn’t walk around there but we mounted our bikes, tested our skills, and enjoyed beautiful bike trip.
Peculiar region of Orava is one the most beautiful places in Slovakia. Regardless season you happen to be there, or weather, it will pleasantly surprise you. This time was no different. Again, we were taken away by it.
In the midst of summer we spent a couple of days in the Oravian village of Oravska Lesna. It is surrounded by beautiful nature of Slovakian Beskydy and Oravska Magura.
Slovakia is a picturesque country. It has beautiful nature as well as beautiful technical sights. Today we visit such a combination of nature with the art of men. We visit Kvacianska valley. There is a unique complex of water mills. There are the top tourist attractions in the region.
Our steps today head to Horna Orava, to a small swamp lake that is of large cultural and natural importance.
Today, on our travels across Slovakia we visit Malatina, a picturesque town between Orava and Liptov. Beautiful nature, quite surroundings, huge mountains. This all make from this place an ideal destination for tourists, bike riders and those who like rest in nature.
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.
I am really getting into mountain biking. There was a time I couldn’t even imagine that I would ride across mountain ridges. Even getting across it on foot was difficult. I thought I would give up right below the peak for many times. Today, I am realizing that I might be an enthusiastic mountain biker.
We started our autumn bike trip in unusual town of Oravska Lesna. First break was in the Oravska forest railroad station – Tanecnik. We climbed up the steep hill to a crossroad on the ridge. We continued from there to Sedlo Beskyd station. There we went into the observation platform. Today we go along the ridge one more time to see a beautiful chapel, our last stop.
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.
On the shore of the Orava dam a district town of Namestovo is located. I ti surrounded by beautiful hills of Oravska Magura and Podbeskydska Highlands. Thanks to its location and picturesque nature around (which is part of Horna Orava Protected Natural Reservation) this town became a center of local culture and tourism.
The ski season is on and this year’s winter is not only rich on snow but also many beautiful sunny days. So as soon as we had a free weekend we moved off to nature at least for few days. Our steps led to Orava, one of the most beautiful regions in Slovakia.
