LIPTOV - Top region of SLOVAKIA

Welcome to Liptov ... a land of extraordinary natural beauty, rich in history and folk traditions.



Land coverage - more than 2000 km2
The highest point - 2495m, Kriváň peak (High Tatras mountains)
The lowest point - 430m, river Váh at Kráľovany
Inhabitants - around 140000


Liptov region is framed by the highest mountains in Slovakia: Nízke Tatry (2043m) on the south, Veľká Fatra (1592m) on the west, Chočské vrchy (1610m), Západne Tatry (2248m) and tip of Vysoké Tatry (2654m) on the north. Liptov basin is opening up to Poprad basin on the east. More than 50% of the land coverage is represented by woods. The centre of the basin is filled up with waters of big dam, called Liptovská Mara. The economic, tourist and cultural hubs of Liptov are towns Liptovský Mikuláš, Ružomberok and Liptovský Hrádok.
This region is offering plenty of opportunities how to spend your free time either in summer and winter - there are 3 national parks around (Tatra, Nízke Tatry and Veľká Fatra NP), 4 caves opened for public (Demänovská jaskyňa slobody - Cave of Freedom, Demänovská ľadová jaskyňa - Ice cave, Važecká jaskyňa and Stanišovská jaskyňa), prominent ski resorts (Jasná and Malinô Brdo), all year round naturally heated aqua-parks (Tatralandia and Bešeňová), UNESCO wooden village Vlkolínec, Havránok - Celtic archeological site, many thermal and mineral springs, villages with many features of traditional folk architecture ... and countless possibilities for hiking, cycling and fishing.
