Šíp (1170 m) - a hill overlooking…
As Liptov region is abundantly rich in natural beauty, gorgeous and varied horrors, jewels of unspoilt nature and historical monuments, we have decided to make a chapter on tourism. In this part we will briefly deal with several areas of tourism, mainly walking, cycling, water tourism and ski tourism. Under tourism we also included paragliding, climbing, hunting and fishing. We recommend to all categories of tourists the world-famous caves, thermal swimming pools, cultural monuments and we also invite you to visit museum expositions.
The southernmost village of Liptov Liptovské Revúce is located about 20 km from Ružomberok. Surrounded by the massifs of the Great Fatra, with local dominant Black Stone and Low Tatras. The River Revúca, flowing through the village, forms the boundary between the territories of these national parks. The revolutions are therefore an ideal starting point for many hiking and biking trails, leading phenomenal and untouched nature that is definitely worth a try. It does not matter where you go to the world, there are always many tourists and you will not be crumpled by an exclusive tourist experience. Liptovské Revúce can not only admire their long history when the first written comment is in 1233, but also because the "best halušky in the world" vary here, as there is an annual competition in their cooking and eating.
From 2013, you can visit another interesting building in the town of Liptovský Ján, such as the Svätoján lookout tower. It turns off in Stran nad cemetery under the hill Kameničná. Its height is 10,475 m and after it you will get a breathtaking view of the whole village Liptovský Ján.
