2 Different Worlds in 1 Paradise

I often hear one sentence: „Hmm… I wonder how does it look like here in winter?“ when we walk through the mountains of Slovakia with groups. So here I come with an answer - Ice, Ice and Ice.... Have a look at this collection of winter and summer photos of the Slovak Paradise, so you can see the differences. On one side you can see how this area, full of adventure hikes…

Adventure weekend in the paradise – Slovak Paradise

The most popular place for hiking in Slovakia is the High Tatras. No doubt. But, locals know more places worth of visiting. The Slovak Paradise is one of those and may be pretty busy on a nice summer Saturday, because it´s different than any other Slovak mountains. There are not any high peaks, so what does it make so popular? The hikes that follow a system of ladders, catwalks and bridges past waterfalls and…

A boat ride in the Domica cave

So far, about 7100 caves were discovered in Slovakia. Some of them are small, but some of them consist of tens of kilometres long underground corridors. Probably the most famous is the system of Demänovska caves, but I don´t want to talk about those right now. If you travelled to the South of Slovakia you could visit the Domica cave, which is situated in the Slovak Karst National Park.  It´s part…

Walking in the Strazovske mountains

Recently, it occurred to me, that I should hike more often in the surroundings of the town where I live, which is Puchov, because mostly I hike in the High Tatras and I barely know the area around my home town.

Colorful autumn in the Sulov Cliffs

Thank God Slovakia has so many beautiful places to hike and their character keeps changing as the seasons come and go. That´s why I never hesitate to visit the same place again and again, because you never know, how it´s gonna look like there at the time of your next visit. It´s the same with the Sulov Cliffs, where I´ve hiked many times before, but probably not yet in autumn. So last weekend…

Hiking in the amazing Sulovske rocks

The Súľovské skaly (Sulovske rocks) forming an attractive rock town are situated in the north-west of Slovakia, only several kilometres from Žilina. Once even the Súľov castle was standing here. The first thing which came to my mind was - How the hell did they manage to build a castle up here? :) And I wasn't the only one. I heard a lot of people asking themselves the same question. We simply couldn’t imagine,…
