Šútovské Lake Šútovo

the former Rieka quarry has flooded, creating a natural open-air swimming pool that resembles the Silver Lake from Karl May’s Winnetou westerns. The water is a crystal clear turquoise with two large beaches, a number of small beaches and a naturist beach. A footpath leads from the lake to Šútovský waterfall; the walk there and back takes about 3 hours. Although visitors use the area at their own risk it attracts many visitors every summer.
