Sightseeing boat cruise on the Orava Dam

The cruise includes a stop with a tour of the unique Slanica Island of Art. In the beautiful natural scenery of the Slanica Island of Art in the center of the Orava Dam, there are permanent exhibitions of traditional folk art from the collections of the Orava Gallery. Out of five settlements that disappeared forever under water in 1953, only a hill with the Baroque church and the Calvary, which once dominated the village of Slanica was preserved as an island. Several years later, in 1971 – 1973  permanent exhibitions of the Orava Gallery were put in place.

This trip can be combined with a visit to Kinderlandu indoor playground – in Námestovo, just 7 km from the Orava Dam port. Your children will certainly be thrilled.
