After the capital, the spa town of Trenčianske Teplice has a romantic offer for hikers and tourists: both inhabitants and visitors of the western Slovak town in the Trenčín Region can spend a night in the tree-tops close to the local Spa Park, on the hiking route towards Klepáč hill.

Built on three beeches standing on a slope, the 3.5 to 5-metre tall tree-house spreads over 33 square metres, the My Trenčín regional newspaper wrote on August 19.

The tree-house is not connected to electric power wiring and water pipes; four people can be accommodated – it has one double bed and one bunk bed.

From the terrace, a separate chemical toilet is accessible with an enamelled old-fashion wash-basin and a water jug for basic washing. The house is lit with LED-lamps powered by batteries and candles in closed lanterns.
