Between Slovakia and the Czech Republic there is the wonderful mountain range of the White Carpathians. You can find there many tourist trails including one going up to – Velky Lopenik (911 m). There is an observation tower on the top. From there you get beautiful panorama over the landscape. NEar the tower there is even a shed for tourists. Bit further, there is a memorial to the fallen Soviet soldiers who died during the WWII fights. However, there are also cows pasturing. We really recommend you to visit this place.

As soon as you enter the Trenčín region, you will find yourself in Matouš's kingdom, which is named after the most powerful ruler and Hungarian nobleman named Matúš Čák Trenčianský. In this kingdom, you can not only admire the beauty of nature and historical monuments, but also visit villages, towns, restaurants and hotels, which work together to offer services and traditions so that everyone feels at home.
A tourist trip we undertake together today takes us on the highest mountain of the White Carpathian Mountains.
After long time, we visited not the highest but certainly one of the most spectacular of Slovakia's mountain ranges – Vrsatska Klipe.
Beautiful Adamovska lakes belong to the Gbely town disctrict. The lakes are popular mostly among people that want to recreate and people who own cottages. Also several thousand water birds made this place their oasis. A visitor can observe them from nearby observation post.

The region of Povazi offers many sights, natural as well as man-made. Today we visit one of the latter – Beckov castle is the most attractive sight in Beckov village which is near Nove Mesto nad Vahom.
One of the most beautiful and best preserved castle ruins, which was reopened to the public on the beginning of the summer season this year after several years of extensive renovation, definitely worth a visit.
What else we loved about the region of Zahorie located in west Slovakia? Well, where is the only preserved building since the Great Moravia empire? Answers to this question and others are in this article.
After several weeks, more or less spent at home watching television because I during a crazy ride on motor bikes fractured ribs, I could no longer wait for the next trip. On long trips my body still did not dare, so we decided that we go somewhere to water.
Vršatská cliffs, that are part of the White Carpathian Mountains, belong to a very attractive tourist sites. Mostly consist of massive limestone grained, which are not only rich fossil fauna, but also offer a beautiful view of the landscape of the central character.
If you belong to lovers of nature, for who is no problem to carry the essentials on back - water, something to eat, and in case of worsening weather also some spare clothes, or at least a raincoat and hiking outing from ridge mountain hotel Portáš to the highest mountain peak of Javorníky - to the Velký Javorník, I can highly recommend.
