North Slovakia

North Slovakia apartments by NOVASOL

Summer is the most exciting time in North Slovakia as the area between Fatra and Tatra, where soft hills and steep rock formations start to change. Found in both High Tatras, the world's smallest mountain area, and Little Tatra, national parks have been established to protect the areas unique nature, which nature enthusiasts and adventurers are sure to enjoy whilst staying in our Slovakia apartments. Where else in Europe can you go hiking, meet wild brown bears or watch eagles flying around? The flora is an interesting place for an afternoon stroll and the lower lying meadows grow vegetation from berries to mushrooms. Equally fascinating are the impressions you get when you go down to one of the caves with their huge waterfalls and icy regions.

Slovakia apartments and holiday cottages

Active holidays in Slovakia apartments

Northern Slovakia is not only a place of nature enthusiasts. If you’re looking for relaxation through physical activity, you’ll satisfy your needs here. In summer, the mountains are perfect for hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking, while further down the valley you can play golf or sail in the canoe on the Vah River. In the winter, the hills in Lower Tatra are very popular among ski enthusiasts. However, if you want to relax after a strenuous sports day, you should visit a spa and health centre. Due to the many hot springs, Northern Slovakia has a long spa bath tradition that is still part of day to day life and the Slovakian culture even now. Holidays are about feeling relaxed and restoring energy, so be sure to rest your legs and enjoy the time with your family and friends.

Medieval castles and other sights to see whilst self-catering in Slovakia

The numerous castles, spectacular buildings and memorials exhibit the exciting Slovakian history in the heart of Europe. The northern Spiš is rich in architectural monuments from history, such as the manor Strážky, the Červený monastery and the Kežmarok and Ľubovniansky castles. The Gothic castle Orava is built into a rock formation, which meant that the castle has several levels and, due to its introduction into nature, is an experience for both nature lovers and history and architecture enthusiasts. A holiday here showcases any type of break you require and with through a rental apartment from NOVASOL, you get the perfect accommodation in Slovakia for just your dream vacation.

Holiday homes near the National Park of the Low Tatras

The National Park of the Low Tatras in the north has an abundance of limestone and dolomite and is equipped with impressive caves. We have to mention the Demänová dripstone cave where limestone is adorned on all the caverns in shades of white, yellow and pink. The other impressive cave in the same valley which we would suggest you visit whilst renting our self-catering Slovakia apartments or holiday homes in the area is the Demänová Ice Cave where the water is washed round moulds from the stone, ceiling drops and frost weather. The special feature here is the filling of the lower section with ice, which is permanent due to the closure of the entrances. As a result, the cold air could not circulate and remained here. In summer the temperature is a bitterly cold 0ºC. On the hill above the drinking water reservoir Liptovká Mara lies Havránok Hill Fort - a major centre of Celts in Northern Slovakia (380 BC - 180 AD). Several Celtic villages can be visited in the Archaeological Park.

Holiday home in Bardejov

In the north-east lies Bardejov, an area that’s had growing tourism for a few years now. The medieval town centre belongs to the UNESCO cultural heritage and bears the typical architectual features of German Eastern colonization. The city has a romantic flair and a charming atmosphere for you to immerse yourself in whilst staying in your chosen Slovakia accommodation in the area and in the southeast in Humenné there lies in a picturesque landscape with the romantic ruins of medieval castles. The city was so important that the first trade academy of the Habsburg Empire was founded here.
