Beautiful mountain town of Oravska Lesna is surrounded by beautiful yet hars nature of the Slovakian Beskydy and the Oravska Magura. Despite it is located in the midst of the mountains, its surroundings is ideal to bike there. Of many marked bike trails and nice forest paths, everyone will choose according to his preference, enthusiastic bikers, and families with children as well. The latter can take, for instance, a nice asphalt road going slightly uphill to unique historical narrow gauge railway. More experienced hikers can test their abilities on a bike up hill to the railroad station of Sedlo Beskyd, or while climbing to beautiful chapel near the upper station of a cableway in Lehotska.

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.
Last week we learned the history of the privileged Orava town of Trstena, and today we will do some sightseeing for we will visit sacral buildings, architectural treasures and modern sights. We will even take you to one beautiful place of pilgrimage.
Last week we went together on an excursion to the parish church which we left for the House of Culture. This beautiful and modern building offers spaces for cultural events, concerts or discussions.
Today, in the village of Trstená, we can see the dominants of Milan Rastislav Štefánik Square. We start with the Franciscan monastery, which was built between 1776 and 1780. Until now, he has been architecturally modified several times, but he does not detract from his beauty.
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.
Orava Castle, is one of Slovakian icons, is known by almost everyone, but only a few know about the remarkable village below. Oravský Podzámok is not only the gateway to one of the most beautiful castles in Slovakia, but also offers a number of interesting architectural gems and attractions.
This time we will go to Orava, more precisely to the district town of Dolný Kubín. The town of almost 20,000 is set in the valley of the river Orava and is surrounded by the majestic mountains of the Orava Highlands and Orava Magura. The peaks of Malá Fatra or Chočské vrchy also stand out in the background.
Our steps today head to Horna Orava, to a small swamp lake that is of large cultural and natural importance.
A week ago, we ended our walk through Dolný Kubín in the so-called Kohútový sad. Let's continue to the pedestrian zone of the historic center, which decorates the beautiful Hviezdoslav Square. It consists of a terraced development of colorful burgher houses used as retail space and for the purposes of restaurants or offices.
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.
Picturesque Oravian town of Hrustin is located in the middle between Namestov and Dolni Kubin. Our loyal readers truly know it very well.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Today, our steps will lead to the north of Slovakia. We will visit spectacular Orava region, where we visit the unique technical monument – Orava Forest Railroad.
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.
Few weeks ago there was an interesting event in picturesque Hrustin, a town in Orava, called the Hrustinska Prevodovka, which we didn’t want to miss. What we have seen and experienced will be revealed on the lines below.
Do you belong among winter sports lovers? Also, you can not imagine a winter holiday without a good snow and well-maintained slopes? Although, I have to admit that in recent years we go with a group on skiing for one week. Usually, we go abroad, but the Slovak mountains, we did not forgot about. My favorite places have been for years the Kysuce and Orava regions.
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.
