Liptovská Osada is a village in Liptov, Central Slovakia.

Map of Liptovská Osada


This laid-back area doesn't provide too many big-name tourist attractions, but if you are a nature lover, there are secluded forests that allow hiding from civilisation for many days.

Get in[edit]

Most commonly from Ruzomberok.

Get around[edit]

Because there are only relatively small (but long) villages in the area, the public bus connections aren't ideal - while timely, they only operate a few times a day.


Ice climbing at Brankov waterfall
  • 1 Brankov waterfall (Brankovský vodopád). Highest waterfall of Low Tatras, especially nice in winter. Brankov waterfall (Q3500756) on Wikidata sk:Brankovský vodopád on Wikipedia


  • 1 Ruzomberok-Korytnica cycle path (Start at the bridge between the streets Krčméryho and Šoltésovej, continue along the Revúca river.). A bike road in place of former "small train" track, mostly flat - it's a nice all-day long trip for families, as you can avoid the main road on most of it. Korytnica used to be a famous spa area, but now it is somewhat degraded. There are some restaurants and mineral water springs in the area.
  • Hike to 2 Prašivá or Veľká Chocuľa peaks in Low Tatras (Start in Liptovská Lúžna or Korytnica). The hike up is quite steep for an hour or two. (Q12774394) on Wikidata
  • 3 Salatín peak (From Liptovská Lúžna, approx. 2.5h one way.). A peak with good views, the ascend is somewhat steep near the peak. Salatín (Low Tatras) (Q9332888) on Wikidata
  • Relax at 4 Gothal aquapark. A relatively small aquapark with a pool, few whirpools, wellness, bowling and minigolf. Also pizza available.
  • Fishing at 5 Revuca river. Pretty popular area amongst locals - during summer, many groups of people spend weekends here in tents, relaxing, rafting the (rather cold) river etc.
  • Climb a small 6 Via ferrata Dve Veže.

Great Fatra (and its edges) provides a few skiing areas:

  • 7 Smrekovica (From Ružomberok, turn into Podsuchá and go up the valley.). A secluded and small one, only 400 m. Smrekovica (Q9338777) on Wikidata
  • 8 Donovaly. Not in Great Fatra nor Liptov, but right at its edge. You can spend a few days here, esp. because there is plenty of hotels and non-ski activities (e.g. park for kids).



  • 1 Vlčí dvor. Local cuisine.
  • 2 Bodega. Local cuisine, pizza.


In Korytnica, there are several mineral water springs - if that's your thing. The water is also commercially used.
