SK, Orava – A Trip to Slanice Art Island
heading (paragraph): Sights
No. of pictures: 42 pictures
Today we will take you to one exceptional place, which, despite its planned demise, gave way to art. Our goal will be the distinctive Orava region, more precisely the city connected with water - Námestovo. On its edge lies the Orava Reservoir with the popular Slanický Island of Art. The 3.5-hectare island is actually a ridge of the former settlement of Slanica, which, together with four other settlements, was flooded as part of the construction of a reservoir. The remains of the former settlement invite visitors to visit the Baroque-Classicist church of the Exaltation of Holy Cross (1843) with two towers, a locksmith's chapel, a lapidary in the vicinity of the sacral building, where there is an exhibition of Orava stonework (from the 18th and 19th centuries), or the Calvary and the symbolic cemetery. Here you can also see a monument to the important native Anton Bernolák.

Last week we briefly imagined the history of Dolní Kubín and today we will go for a walk through its alleys, squares and interesting nooks. We start at Náměstí Svobody, which is surrounded by three architecturally monumental buildings.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
Our steps today head to Horna Orava, to a small swamp lake that is of large cultural and natural importance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
