Tips for trips
This time we will take you to Kysuce, more precisely to the village of Oščadnica, which is one of the largest Slovak villages in terms of population and area. Our goal will be the Cottage on Velká Rača (Schronisko PTTK Wielka Rácz), located about 80 meters below the summit.
Let's say goodbye to winter today. Most of the famous Beskydy trips lead to the top of the mountains, not only families with children but will appreciate the beautiful educational circuit through a picturesque landscape of pastures, forests and scattered mountain settlements. In addition, part of the journey is lined with colorful pictures intended mainly for children.
After a week, we return to the Žilina region to take you through breathtaking sights. Today we start near Liptovský Mikuláš, in the picturesque village of Svätý Kríž.
The pandemic situation is the same this week and the lockdown still lasts. The people of Prague can come here now, the people outside Prague will have to endure for a while longer. You can spend the whole day in one of the most popular parks in Prague and you will definitely not be bored here. In addition to romantic places and large grassy areas, there are also several playgrounds, an in-line track and a dog playground.
Accept our invitation to the beautiful Žiarská dolina, which with its Žiarská chata is undoubtedly one of the most popular places for all lovers of winter tourism or ski mountaineering.
Last week we took a look at Žilina, invited you to nature and recommended one of the most important events in the region. Today, wanderings in the footsteps of the Templars, a ride along the Castle Cycle Route, winter hiking in the Súľov Hills or exploring the folk heritage await you.
They really do not want new measures of excursions, you will not get outside the cadastre of your village at the moment. So today we have something for the people of Prague, but also for the rest of you, only you will be able to come here later. Chotkovy sady are within sight of the Lesser Town and Prague Castle and are easily accessible by public transport. Although they are small in size, together with the neighboring Letenské sady, they form a pleasant green oasis in the historical center of Prague.
The Žilina region is located in the north of central Slovakia and combines the beauty of pure nature and unique places. It is one of the most popular tourist locations in Slovakia, thanks to the presence of four national parks and three protected landscape areas.
Do you long to hide from the world and the mountains are too crowded for you? Near the D1 motorway in the Vysočina region you will find two inconspicuous villages. The town of Polná with a rich history and the remote village of Nadějov.
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.
The historic town of Tišnov is known to most people in connection with the famous monastery of Porta Coeli in the neighboring Předklášteří. But Tišnov itself is definitely worth a visit, let's go to it together now.
Today we will go to the Nitra region for the last time. This time we will take you to the mysterious catacombs, introduce you to the amazing Ponitran cycle route and do not miss tips on trips.
This year's winter is really rich in snow. And where to go on a trip when the lifts are closed, but you want to enjoy the snow? There are few possibilities in the Czech Republic and the Czech mountains are not only the Giant Mountains, the Jizera Mountains or the Jeseníky Mountains. We chose the somewhat not so touristy Ore Mountains with the highest mountain Klínovec.
This year's winter offers us wonderful weather and plenty of snow. That is why today we invite you for a winter hiking trip to the second highest peak of Oravská Magura - Kubínská hoľa (1,346 m above sea level), which is a popular destination for all the highest winter sports.
Although the five comic boys called Fast Arrows are now closer to a generation of grandparents and parents, the adventures from the workshop of the writer Jaroslav Foglar still remain in our memories. To mark the 80th anniversary of Quick Arrows, rychlesipy.org has created a unique outdoor game in the very center of Prague. Until March 14, 2021, a lot of interesting tasks await you in Stínady and its surroundings at 25 locations, where you can also compete for prizes. Just download the map and notebook from the rychlesipy.org website and embark on an adventure with the whole family, which perhaps requires only comfortable shoes, warm clothes and a good mood.
After a week, we continue exploring the Nitra region, whose highest point is Panská Javorina (942.6 m above sea level, Považský Inovec mountain range), where a 16-meter-high wooden lookout tower has been rising since 2010.
Downhill skiing or snowboarding is probably not waiting for us this year, but cross-country skiers also offer great variety in these times. Today we will go to the Jizera Mountains. Cross-country skiing conditions are great, tracks beautifully prepared.
There is still a lot of snow outside, but most people are already looking for warmer days. So let's see where you can start planning your vacation. Horný Liptov abounds in many interesting localities, where local and foreign tourists go.
In the southwestern Slovakia lies the Nitra Region, whose natural border with Hungary is the Danube River. It is one of the warmest and at the same time one of the driest areas in Slovakia. It has an important place in history, because its metropolis, ancient Nitra, played an important role in shaping the Slovak nation, its culture and education.
At the confluence of the Černá and Bílá Desná rivers in the Liberec region is the town of Desná. It is by no means interesting in itself, it is worth mentioning the historic churches of the Ascension of the Lord and the Virgin Mary, Riedl's villa from 1895 and the funeral chapel. Lovers of winter sports in particular, but also cyclists and tourists will find theirs here.
Today we invite you for a walk through the upper Liptov, where there are two distinctive villages near Numbná and Královoholská part of the Low Tatras - Nižná and Vyšná Boca.
Most trips to the Jeseníky Mountains go to Praděd. A lot of people can get to Šerák only thanks to the cable car. At the same time, Šerák and the adjacent Keprník offer a hike through beautiful nature. For example, from Ramzová around the Giant Rocks, where we will go together now.
Toronto is one of the most sought-after Canadian cities in the Czech Republic, as it is located in the eastern part of the country, and is therefore a few hours closer to us than cities in the west. From the Czech Republic you can get to Toronto by direct flight from Prague. You will probably arrive at Toronto International Pearson Airport, which is a larger airport and serves most flights to and from Europe. There is another smaller Toronto Island airport in Toronto, but it is used more for domestic flights and flights to nearby cities in the USA.
Today we will take you to Liptov, more precisely to the outskirts of the village Jalovec, which lies less than 10 kilometers north of Liptovský Mikuláš. Our starting point will be the recreation center Bobrovecká Vápenice, where there is the possibility of free parking.
As the weather outside is good for winter activities, we decided to go on a moderately demanding ski mountaineering ascent to Skalnata chata. The starting point was the valley station of the cable cars in Tatranská Lomnica, where a large-capacity car park and a complete visitor infrastructure have been built.
