Only the Liptov region can be proud of the fact that it is surrounded by the highest and most beautiful Slovak mountain ranges. Its picturesque background is created by the rocky peaks of the High Tatras and Western Tatras on the north, and the burly ridges of the Low Tatras on the south. The valley of Liptovská kotlina is marked by the Veľká Fatra and Chočské vrchy mountain ranges on the west, and the distinctive mountain range named Kozie chrbty lies to the east. Local nature, coniferous and mixed forests, rocky mountain ridges, mountains with glaciers and mountain lakes in the Tatras and caves full of karst formations suitable for tourism are the true treasures of Liptov.
Mountains, untouched nature, historical monuments, distinctive folk architecture, as well as developed infrastructure and winter and summer sports resorts make Liptov one of the most popular sites for tourists from home and abroad. It is a region of skiing, hiking, cycling as well as of thermal springs and water parks. Ski resorts attract visitors in the winter, while in the summer the water of the Liptovská Mara water reservoir provides ideal opportunities for swimming and sports. Local water parks and spas are year-round attractions.
The Vlkolínec Folk Architecture Reservation inscribed in the UNESCO List of the World Heritage is one of the highlights of Liptov’s historical and cultural monuments.
