Where is Vyšná Boca?

In the north of Slovakia, at the end of the green valley Bocianská, lies the small mining village Vyšná Boca. Located in the Low Tatras, in the middle of the Nízke Tatry National Park (NAPANT), beautifully framed by the Čertovice and Rovná hoľa Mountains, this idyllic village will make any nature-loving heart beat faster. Hiking enthusiasts will find here the ideal starting point for tours to the Tatra Ďumbier and Kráľovohorské.

The center of the village is situated at 950 meters above sea level, 19 km away from Liptovský Hrádok. The original buildings preserved to this day still bear witness to the mining past of the village. In earlier times, workers lived here to mine gold and iron. Now tourists can stay in the historic rooms and apartments, which have been lovingly restored.

To get to this village in the Low Tatras, vacationers from Austria, the Czech Republic or Switzerland travel best by car or bus.

What can you do in Vyšná Boca?

Hiking in the NAPANT National Park in summer and discovering numerous caves

If you love nature and hiking, you should definitely plan a stay in Vyšná Boca! Because starting from this village, the long valleys, steep cliffs, deep gorges and vast forests of the Nízke Tatry (Low Tatras) National Park are wonderful to discover. You can climb the peaks of the Low Tatras, Chopok and Ďumbier and enjoy a breathtaking view of large parts of Slovakia. Or you can venture into the interior of the mountains and explore some of the caves in the park. The most famous is certainly the Demänová Freedom Cave on the right side of the Demänovská dolina valley. However, "the cave of dead bats" and the Bystrianska jaskyňa cave, with a sightseeing path of 580 m, are absolutely worth a visit.

Starting November, Vyšná Boca turns into an inviting and exciting ski resort.
