Itinerary

The Hron river basin represents a colorful landscape, with a variety of possibilities for family vacation and active relaxation. In the environs of river Hron, there can be found a lot of historical and cultural sights. Stay in this country can certainly give you a lot of pleasant and interesting moments to remember. The biggest attraction for tourists, rock climbers and lovers of beautiful nature is the Low Tatras National Park, second highest mountain range in Slovakia. This mountain range lies in the central part of Slovakia and is almost 100 kilometers long. Thanks to this fact, it is possible to view almost the entire surrounding country from its peak and this gives a beautiful experience of the movement through a virgin nature, full of rare plants and creatures. Under the mountain range is hidden continuous complex of caves, hundreds of kilometers long, which remain so far mostly unexplored.
