Strážov, sitting at 1,213 metres above sea level, is the highest peak in the Strážovské mountains and the second highest peak in the Trenčín region, and it is a great spot for hikers even in winter, the TASR newswire reports.

The peak towers above the village of Zliechov and it is also accessible from the village of Čičmany. In the winter, it often offers beautiful views due to temperature inversion which causes mist and fog to be trapped by the cooler air that is driven down below the peak.
