    A DAY TRIP TO SLOVAKIA

    Slovakia & Carpathian Mountains

    This is very easy to do from Rožnov pod Radhoštìm. The city of Zilina is only 73 kms or a little over an hours drive away. The route is very scenic as it passes through small villages and farming land. In the background were the wonderful high snow covered peaks of the Carpathian Mountain range. The town of Zilina has everything you need including a large modern shopping centre where I found clothing was a reasonable price, great choice too!

    If you want, you can return to the Czech Rep. and put Slovakia on your list of countries visited, or continue on through the country like we did.

    MOUNTAIN VILLAGE OF PUSTEVNY

    Located on a mountain top just 9kms from Roznov pod Radhoštìm is the very attractive alpine resort in Pustevny, which is a Czech word for Hermit. Hermits lived here until the year 1874.
    We had our own car, so were able to wind our way up the mountain side from Prostredni Becva or you can come by chair lift from Raztoka in Trojanovice. There was still snow and people skiing in April.

    Why I wanted to come here, was to see the unique architecture I had seen in photos. I wasn't disappointed, for here were wooden buildings built in traditional folk style at the end of the 19th century. When I first set eyes on them, it was wow! They were built out of dark wood, but were painted in very bright colours and were decorated - what a picture!

    The decorated log buildings are typical for the Valašsko region and Slavic architecture in general.
    The Bell tower has been restored, although the original paintings were not preserved.

    I didn't do this, but there is a walk from here to a chapel built in 1898 and a sculpture of Saints Cyril and Methodius from the year 1905

    For those interested in skiing - There are 11 lifts and one chairlift. The lift at Raztoka was the first chairlift built in Europe.
