On this week’s Spectacular Slovakia, we are joined once again by Ľubomír Mäkký of the hiking.sk website, who will recommend two hiking trips in western Slovakia.

He will first take listeners to cone-shaped Vápeč in the Strážovské vrchy mountain range, near Ilava in the Trenčín Region. The second trip will lead listeners to the Small Carpathians, where Kršlenica peaks into view.

Have a listen to the podcast to find out why you should climb up the two hilltops and to discover just what (and where) Deravá skala (Hollow Rock) and Mon Repos are.
