Orava

Basic information

“Orava’s good, Orava’s healthy,” says one folk song about Slovakia’s coldest and most northerly region, famous for its picturesque landscapes and fresh air. It is a long time since Orava was just a poor region where the people grew potatoes and cabbages, sent wood down the river in rafts and raised sheep. It is situated in north-west Slovakia on the border with Poland. The region is one of the most attractive in Slovakia for tourism, with something for everyone: picturesque countryside, which could have been designed for active recreation, the majestic Orava Castle and traditional wooden cottages, Slovakia’s most largest artificial lake – the Orava Reservoir, churches inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List and even an aquapark and ski centre. The region includes the most northerly point in Slovakia – Babia hora. In the south-east the region is bordered by the Western Tatras, in the south by the Choč Mountains and in the south-west a spur of the Veľká Fatra brushes the region. Orava is most popular with walkers and cyclists, but there is also plenty for those who seek out natural beauty spots, winter sports fans and those who love art, history and folklore. Visitors can relaxed in unspoilt natural surroundings or warm, therapeutic water. The region includes a small part of the Western Tatras with high peaks such as Ostrý Roháč. The sharp ridge of this range zigzags extensively over a total length of 35 km.  The most beautiful and the most frequently visited part of the mountains is called Roháče, and it is a paradise for walkers and cyclists. In the foothills of Roháče you can find the Museum of the Orava Village – an open-air museum showing how people lived in Orava in the past. Historic folk architecture can be found in many villages in Orava, the most valuable being the folk architecture reserve in Podbiel and the aforementioned open-air museum at Zuberec
