SR, Liptov Region: Liptovsky Jan – The Underground Below Towers
After a week we are back to Liptov. This time I will not tempt the no crazy adrenaline games, on the contrary, I invite you to the museum. But not just any do! Underground beneath the towers, as this tiny museum in Liptovsky Jan name, conceals an engaging exhibition that will introduce you to a life full of coins from birth in the depths of the earth after its birth in the mint.
From the outset, I would like to mention that this museum is definitely worth a visit in any season and in any weather and not take it only as an emergency program in case of bad weather. We were there with our Polish friends and I have to admit that even for us it was one of the most interesting museums we have visited. Despite it is really tiny, you know it and spend it quietly for hours. The entire tour will be hosted by the renown "expert" - a museum is established group of enthusiasts, passionate cavers, so although interpretation is very eye-catching, but as you acknowledge the many questions yet to answer with absolute precision do not know. Still, we guarantee that you will learn many interesting things and some spiciness of life not only coins but also the lives of our ancestors.
If you drive here, you can park right in front of exposure to the free car park. The museum is open year round and if you combine the visit with a visit of Medvedi Stola in Ziarska Valley , or Stanisovska Cave in Janske Valley, you may be able to get a discount on admission, like it happened to us.
Ticket prices and opening hours are HERE.
Of Life of a Coin
The museum exhibition Underground Beneath the Towers is truly unique and will appeal to visitors of all ages. From the beginning to the end of the exhibition your attention is constantly kept focused thanks to engaging storytelling and demonstrations guide. Each tour begins engraved commemorative coin collector. Then you descend into the bowels of the earth where the ore is located. There miners lived their hard life, but also the difficult lives of their wives and children, with your own eyes you will see a touch of metal with fire and water in a forge, you'll become, or if you find a place so rather sit at the birth of a completely new coins, you can try self how hard our ancestors worked, well, at the end of the tour, you might just become the proud owner of a unique collector coins, which even has a "birth certificate", i.e. a certificate of origin and the exact number. During each inspection occurs, only one coin.
Visitors must jointly agree on what material will be produced, and what exactly will be shown. You can choose to have the three materials and three themes, so sometimes it even takes opensa stormy debate that often end up voting. At the end of the tour, you can enjoy the right Janska coin auction, the starting value is 1 euro. But this is not the final price. Winner of the auction must still sign the book to auction goose pen. However, this is not easy, and nope it's not as simple as it see in fairy tales. We were involved in the auction while, but could not win it because we stopped here until the end of the holiday Liptov , and so we had a fairly pretty pockets.
The tiny gift shop have we bought at least magnets that will remind us to visit this unique exhibition and quickly got into the car to catch the latest entry into the Stanisovska Cave. But we will talk about it next time.

Namesti Zadosti Slovenskeho Naroda square was the place we visited previously. Back then, we already noticed the Slovakian Museum of Enviromental Protection and Caves.
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.
Today, we set off to a place near the town of Ruzomberok. It is a beautiful valley in the Velka Fatra mountains. If you guess that we go to Cutkovska valley, you're right.

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.
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.
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.

On our way from Orava, we planned to transfer to the capital. As we arrived couple of hours agead, we decided to put our luggage to a luggage room. The time we had we used for a short walk in the center of the second most important town in the region of Liptov.
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.
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.
Our vacation got little bit ugly due to cold and rainy weather. This was why our initial goal was almost abandoned. We wanted to enjoy biking and walks in beautiful nature.
If you will travel through north road-line from west to the east of Slovakia (or vice versa) and will not be in a hurry, and would like to reflect on, which sightseeings will be worth to visit (or where you wish to have a rest for relax), so we have one reference for you: would you leave the highway at exit Liptovsky Hrádok and drive in direction to Pribylina.
Liptov region hides many attractive localities to visit. Should you be fans of skiing or hikes then there are beautiful mountains for you. Water enthusiasts can have fun at water-parks. On the other hand, history enthusiasts can go and see places such as Liptovsky Mikulas, Ruzomberok etc.
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.
There soon will be spring. And a new tourist season as well. Please accept our invintation for this slightly difficult yet beautiful climb to one of the most beautiful summits in Slovakia – Velky Choc.
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.
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.
Last week we started our tour in the historical core of Liptovsky Mikulas, the alleged entrance gate to the Liptov Region. Despite bad weather, we saw many sights and places we tell you about today.
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.
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.

Also people loving adrenaline will enjoy it.
The region, placed among High Tatra and Low Tatra Mountains (North Slovakia) belongs, thanks to nature conditions and cultural-historical monuments, to one of most beautiful and popular areas of tourist movement in Slovakia.
Today we visit the third most highly located mountain cottage in Slovakia – Stone Cottage Below Chook. Many people who love our mountains know it just as Kamienka.
Those who love nature will sure agree with my following statement – the end of summer and beginning of autumn is the best period for tourism. Everything seems more beautiful and more quite because the tourist season is long gone and the winter season haven’t even began. Nature changed its clothes to more colorful one and you can see animals where you wouldn’t expect them – right on a tourist pathway.
There are many beautiful places in Slovakia. Among them is our largest and the second highest mountains, the Low Tatra mountains. If you seek not only beautiful nature but also quality services and quality accommodation, we have several tips for you.
One never gets bored in the Low Tatras. From spring to fall, tourists that like short or long trips in beautiful Tatranian nature go there.

Join us for a easy tour around beautiful Vrbicke pleso. From there you will experience interesting view of the Low Tatras.
We enjoyed several days in the Low Tatras despite the fact that weather was not good. Excited tourist and a man who loves mountain is hard to discourage, especially with only few rain drops that bring with them nice smell of mountain air. Our goal today was a tourist view platform above Pavcina Lehota town.
