Freedom above mountains

Overview

Quote:

Quick Tips:

Every year in the summer is the Slovak Championship

Best Way To Get Around:

Walking, flying, skiing, biking
Quote:
There are many ski lifts all around. Usually these are of the famous type Tatrapoma . You can find many restaurants and fast-foods on the place. In Donovaly everyone can find slopes suited for his own skills. Still crowds of Hungarian and Polish people can make you crazy. But this is true only during their winter holidays. I recommend to visit in February.

Cross country skiing is also a good reason for spending a few days in Donovaly. There's quite a nice route from Donovaly to Korytnica (little spa town a few kilometres from Donovaly heading to Ruzomberok). From Korytnica you can go back to Donovaly by buses, or back by the same route. 

It is also great in the summer!
