Detailed route description

The Háj-Nicovô (The Nicovô Hill) locality is a sought-after place for beautiful landscape, wide sports opportunities and military history. The unforgettable views from its peak overlooking the scenery of the surrounding mountains, the water reservoir Liptovská Mara and the town are among the emotionally strong experiences. In the past, the first local skiers were sliding down the hillsides of Háj, the first ski jump in Liptov was built there, school balls and festivities were also held on this place. Háj also served as pasture for cattle breeding and since the 1950s it has been afforested to its present form.

The nature trail documents the struggles for Liptovský Mikuláš during World War II. It leads to a protected monument complex with a memorial and the largest war cemetery of Czechoslovak soldiers in former Czechoslovakia. It is built in a locality where the second most difficult fighting took place in Slovakia.
