Detailed route description

The Demänovská Cave of Liberty (Slov.:Demänovská jaskyňa Slobody) is one of the most visited natural attractions in the region. It is visited annually by thousands of local and foreign tourists. The cave is situated approximately half-way through the Demänovská Valley and its entrance is accessible from the main road along a 500-metre serpentine pathway.

It is an easy blue marked trail complemented by a nature trail with 6 information boards prepared for visitors by experts from the Správa slovenských jaskýň (Slovak Caves Administration) focusing on natural science and underground karst formations and National Nature Reserve Demänovská Valley. They present the origin and basic features of karst phenomena, the expansion of the karst and accessible caves in Slovakia, as well as natural values, discovery and access to the Demänovská Cave of Liberty.

The linear, self-guided nature trail focusing on natural science and conservation is located in an attractive tourist area and contributes appropriately to the environmental education of the public and can be completed in less than half an hour.

Accessibility and parking

Regular bus service is available on the route Demänovská Valley and Liptovský Mikuláš, which is relatively well-timed to meet the tourists´ needs. The starting point is situated at a bus stop.

Accommodation and food facilities

At the beginning of the nature trail, there is a hotel and the Riverside Restaurant where you can refresh yourself. The widest selection of accommodation and gastronomic facilities within the Liptov region is directly in the Demänovská Valley.
