The small village of Súľov in northern Slovakia is a popular destination among tourists. Rocks to hike, an old castle and pyramid offering a unique view of a spectacular landscape are only a few minutes from the highway.

For more demanding hikers, there is the Súľovské Skaly (Súľovské Rocks) educative path at the beginning of the village, lasting from two to three and half hours, depending on how far you are willing to go.

An easier track for non-hikers is a unique lookout spot above the village. It is possible to park in the centre of the village and walk about 20 minutes up the hill. During a beautiful sunny weekend you'll surely not be alone. Even though Zraková Pyramída (visual pyramid) is not a new attraction, it is still highly visited.

The wooden construction is an art piece by Juraj Gábor, oriented toward Súľovské Skaly. At first, it was part of the gallery in Zlín with the purpose of framing the viewing angle. At the open end of the pyramid there used to be a video in Zlín where Súľovské Skaly is today.

It is possible to enter the structure. Behind the pyramid, there is a small opening where it is possible to look and feel like looking through the finderscope of a camera. The artist wanted people to stop for a while to focus on the beauty of the countryside.

Not only the spectacular landscape but also the local animals will connect you with nature.
