SK, Liptovský Peter and Jamník – Traditional Townships of Liptov
Today we visit the district of Liptovský Mikuláš, more precisely two picturesque Liptov villages, which are located near the highway D1 (exit Liptovský Hrádok).
The first of them will be Liptovský Peter, whose history began as early as 1286. Peter is named after the medieval church of St. Peter, which was built here in the 14th century, but disappeared in 1786.
From the history of the village we learn that for quite a long time belonged to the yeoman family Szentiványiů and also that it was hit by the uprising of Francis II. Rákóczi (1709), when it was largely destroyed, but tenacious residents rebuilt it. The fact that many of them went to work in Budapest and participated in the construction of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe is evidence of the skills of the local masters. The village went through a wave of emigration (to the USA) and also actively participated in the Slovak National Uprising. In 1962, a state potato breeding station was established.
The village offers several brick houses from the 19th century, an evangelical church with a tower, close to it is a bell tower with a pyramid top (1850), as well as an evangelical school. The headquarters of the 1st Czechoslovak Army Corps was in the school during the liberation of Liptov (1945).
The village with more than 1,300 inhabitants boasts famous natives - the famous photographer Martin Martinček, actor Vladimír Kostovič, the first Slovak doctor Maria Bella, the Slovak general and then minister Ferdinand Čatloš.
The second village will be Jamník, which lies less than 3 kilometers from Liptovsky Peter. The history of this almost half a thousand village began to be written indirectly also in 1286, but the first document dates back to 1346. Its ownership was until 1848 in the hands of the yeoman family Podturňanských. The population was engaged in agriculture, sheep breeding and, of course, masonry. Church was long connected with Liptovsky Peter.
Jamník village over time had to deal with fires and world wars. The local people were also actively involved in the SNP, as evidenced by the plaque on the house of the former local national committee. In the village you will find elementary boarding school for pupils with impaired communication ability.
From the sights you can find the neoclassical evangelical church (1907) or sheep farm where sheep's milk products are made.
The surroundings of both villages offer several tourist attractions - medieval castles (Liptovský Hrádok, Liptovský castle), open-air museum (Pribylina) and museum (Liptovský Mikuláš). You can also go to the Low Tatras, aqua park and in winter to ski.

The village of Bešeňová has several tourist attractions, but the biggest ones certainly include an aqua park, a manor house and a natural attraction in the form of the so-called bešeňov travertines. The small Liptov village thus offers cultural, natural and relaxing activities.
This time we will take you to the well-known Liptov village Bešeňová, which is sought after mainly for the year-round water park and geothermal springs reaching up to 70 ° C. We will guide you not only through this amazing attraction, but also visit other sights of the village.
After a visit to Vazec, today we move a little further to the neighboring village Východná. This Liptov village has been associated with the biggest Slovak folklore festival, which has been held here since 1953 for decades.
We will continue the series of articles about Liptov municipalities today. This time we will visit the village of Hybe, which was made famous by Martin Ťapák's movie 1975 - Pacho, the outlaw of Hybe.
Today we visit one of the most interesting towns in Liptov. It is interesting for its history, art, architecture, and nature. The town we talk about is Liptovsky Jan. The town is set in the mouth of Janska Valley at the Nizke Tatry.
Today we will take you to the district of Liptovský Hrádok - Dovalov. It was administratively attached to this charming town in 1971, although its size is larger than Hrádok itself.
We return to a small but beautiful town Liptovský Hrádok. In addition to the natural beauty of the confluence of the Váh and Bela, the natural parallel bar Skalka or an exceptional arboretum, it also offers a number of technical, medieval or historical monuments and attractions.
Liptov is one of the most beautiful regions of Slovakia. Many visitors come here not only for trips to nature or thermal springs, but also to admire historical and artistic monuments. It is no coincidence that in this period, when people need positive signals and tips for excursion places, which we hope will be opened soon, the tourist guide to Liptov is published.
Liptov is one of the most visited regions in Slovakia and we will follow in the following weeks in the footsteps of distinctive Liptov villages, which still live in traditions and offer several sights. And we start in Vazec.
We are about to spend the following weeks in the Liptov region. There we learn about its many beautiful nooks. Today we go to Liptovska Mara and see the open air archeological museum of Havranok which is also a sight of cultural significance.
Boulder valley cut deep between the Cerne Mountains and Ostry Mountain in the Chocske Mountains is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful valleys in Slovakia. In addition, there are two unique Oblazy water mills in its upper part.
This time we visit West Tatra Mounains, 10 kilometers northeast of Liptovsky Mikulas. There we visit the quiant town of Ziar.
Since we like hiking, today we will take you to one beautiful place. Our starting point will be the picturesque village of Liptovská Anna (Liptovský Mikuláš District), the origin of which dates back to the year of 1396.
After our visit in Kalameny village we remain in the Liptov region. We move couple of kilometers to the smallest town of Liptov. It is rich, however, on natural, cultural and historical sights. The town we talk about is Liptovsky Hradok.
The cycling season is slowly over, but we still set out on a beautiful cycling tour surrounded by mountains. Our starting point was perhaps one of the most beautiful, historically, touristly and architecturally important villages of Liptov - Liptovský Ján.
Couple of kilometers from Liptovsky Hradok, a town we saw last week, there is Liptovsky Mikulas – a district town, social and cultural center of the Liptov region. Today we take a tour in this town.
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.
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.
