During July, the second year of the international travel festival Infofest 2019, which brought not only fantastic lectures from around the world or top music performances, but also a number of interesting accompanying events, came to Liptovský Mikuláš.
Compared to the previous year of Infofest (approx. 2 300 people), participation in the festival increased by 100%! Altogether over 5 000 travel enthusiasts from different parts of Slovakia have found their way to Liberty Square or to the Cultural House of Liptovský Mikuláš to enjoy the experience of professional travelers - adventurers.
Visitors to the festival had the opportunity to see 22 lectures, most of which resonated with travel experiences from Kenya, Japan, Route 66 or New Zealand. Of course, other presentations also enjoyed great interest. Altogether, more than 1 800 enthusiasts attended the lectures..
The event also included musical performances. Spectators enjoyed traditional Slovak folklore performed by FS Kriváň, younger years came back to modern music performed by the Czech band Verona and the performance of Dominika Mirgová and this year's music star was Vašo Patejdl - legend of the Czechoslovak music scene.
During the whole festival, a pleasant atmosphere was taken care of by moderator Marián Galajda, Retro Prague Historic Rally event on Friday, which showed beautiful historical cars in the city center or Saturday's launch of a new tourist guide.
The bounce castle, information stand with promotional materials and face painting also enjoyed great interest. Even rainy Saturday weather did not spoil the good mood of visitors. The evaluation poll connected with the raffle was also successful, involving a total of 936 visitors.
The most frequent suggestions for improving the festival were the expansion of the gastro offer during the event or postponement of the lectures.

We returned to our car upon a walk in Liptovsky Mikulas. Before we set off to see other destinations of our trip we took a look into the map. Other two places appeared interesting enough to visit them.
On this day, we visit Namesti Zadosti Slovenskeho Naroda, a square in Liptovsky Mikulas quite hidden from sight. On this small piece of land adjacent to historic center of the city, significant historic events took place.
Namesti Zadosti Slovenskeho Naroda square was the place we visited previously. Back then, we already noticed the Slovakian Museum of Enviromental Protection and Caves.

The Liptov region in central Slovakia is very diverse. Every year it lures many visitors. It is thanks to its beautiful nature, very diverse in fact. Except for tourist and bicycle trails it has a lot of beauty left in the underground. There are also thermal springs or you can learn a lot of about history there. Also people loving adrenaline will enjoy it.
After a visit in a small yet very interesting museum called the Underground below the Towers in Liptovsky Jan. The museum is focused on coins from their very beginnings deep below surface until they are actually made in the mint. We quickly moved from Janska Valley to see this. The guide from Stanisovska Cave had been waiting for us there.
If you belong to those who cannot imagine a summer without swimming and having fun in the water and you do not like crowded swimming pools or water parks and rather prefer swimming in lakes, ponds, rivers or ponds, you certainly know Liptovska Mara.
