Places to go



We have already introduced you the Pieniny National Park (the PIENAP) in the introduction. It is the smallest and (according to many people) also the most beautiful of the Slovakia National Parks. Talking about its age – it is the second oldest National Park which stretches on the border with Poland. Several factors contribute to the special scenic value of the PIENAP and the Dunajec River is one of these factors. For centuries, wooden raft trips have been organized by Gorals (the local population). However, nowadays still more and more people prefer rafting because enjoying active holiday is more fun and adrenaline than enjoying float trip at very slow speed. If you are one of these adventurers, the rafting is the right choice for you. After your rafting trip you can visit a Carthusian Monastery in Červený Kláštor or climb the mountain Tri Koruny where you can enjoy a breathtaking view on the village and its surroundings.



How to enjoy the rest of your holidays? There are some ways to spend your holidays without getting bored.


Well, let’s stay for a while in Slovakia. Stará Ľubovňa is the town known mainly for its castle and The Museum of Folk Architecture. The town Kežmarok which has always been the historical centre of the Spiš region is also very popular among tourists. In Kežmarok you can visit The Wooden articled church which was included on the UNESCO Word Heritage List or the Kežmarok town castle. However, if you prefer lazing the day away, we recommend you visit the town Poprad which is mainly considered to be an entrance gate to the High Tatras but what the tourists seem to appreciate most is its aquapark called Aquacity Poprad. The advantage is that all of these towns are located no more than 60 kilometers from the PIENAP.


Do you want to visit our Polish neighbours? In this case, we recommend you visit the little town Szczawnica which is really close to Lesnica where your rafting trip will end and you can go there on foot or ride a bike. In another case, you can go in the opposite direction (direction: the town Spišská Stará Ves) and visit the little village Niedzica where Niedzica castle towers over a large water reservoir with an impressive dam. This place is really popular among locals as well as among tourists who love spend there their free time especially during the summer.
We are sure your children will be excited about the miniature park and the 3D waterfall pavement painting under the castle. In addition, you can often find there traditional market stalls selling souvenirs and various delicacies.
Well, as you can see, you will not be bored! All you need to do is plan well your Slovak holidays and come to enjoy the beauties of our PIENAP and its surroundings.

„We look forward to meeting you!
