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.
This autumn is perfect for tourism. Discover it with family or friends and enjoy autumn nights in the open air. With the right equipment, such as comfortable and functional clothing, sturdy shoes and a quality sports backpack, unforgettable experiences await you.
Today we are heading to the Namestovo district, where the picturesque Krusetnice village spans at the confluence of the White Orava River and the Klinianka Stream. The village surrounded by the Podbeskydy Highlands invites visitors to a tour of traditional houses, a beautiful Baroque church and even a ski resort. Yet we today will take you to a unique museum where you smell the irresistible aroma of coffee.
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.
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.
Our steps today head to Horna Orava, to a small swamp lake that is of large cultural and natural importance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
