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.
In the western foothills of the Roháče Mountains, you will find the village of Zuberec in a picturesque valley. In addition to trips to the mountains, it also attracts the extensive open-air museum of the Orava Village Museum and the Brest Cave. Let's go here together and look into the history of the Orava region.
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.
This time we invite you on a trip to the Western Tatras, more precisely to the Roháč Valley. Our goal will be the alpine Ťatliakova chata, which is an ideal starting point for hiking to Smutný sedlo, Zábrať saddle or, for example, to Roháčské plesy.
If you will travel through north road-line from west to the east of Slovakia (or vice versa) and will not be in a hurry, and would like to reflect on, which sightseeings will be worth to visit (or where you wish to have a rest for relax), so we have one reference for you: would you leave the highway at exit Liptovsky Hrádok and drive in direction to Pribylina.
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.
Picturesque Oravian town of Hrustin is located in the middle between Namestov and Dolni Kubin. Our loyal readers truly know it very well.
Our steps today head to Horna Orava, to a small swamp lake that is of large cultural and natural importance.
The Western Tatras is very popular and frequented mountain range. Treks here, the main ridge especially, are amazing and people who go there long remember it. Ostry Rohac is perhaps the most attractive and most well known peak in this area. Many tourists hike across it every year.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
