Orava is situated in the northern part of Žilina’s region and covers 1 660 km2. It borders on Poland. The main population is in the valleys of the river Orava and some smaller streams around the mountains: Beskydská vrchovina, Chočské vrchy, Malá a Veľká Fatra, Oravská Magura and Oravské Beskydy, Polhorská vrchovina, Skorušina a Západné Tatry – Roháče with highest peak Baníkov – 2,178 m a.s.l.
The travel and tourism concentrates not only in the towns but also in some very important natural resorts – Roháče, Oravice and Orava Dam.
These areas attract tourists both in the winter and the summer season with their ideal conditions for recreation, rural tourism and sports such as trekking, mountainbike riding, downhill and cross-country skiing, as well as water sports like windsurfing, yachting and fishing at ORAVA DAM LAKE.
The area of Západné Tatry – Roháče is a part of Tatra National Park and Horná Orava territory is protected natural reservation. The folk festivals and other cultural and sport events with international participation contribute to the development of travel and tourism in this region. The picturesque region of Orava is very attractive for every visitor, history and architecture lovers, nature and sports lovers as well as the people who are interested in the traditional folk festivals.

Hello Aries. Well done on the 1000plus here. You have captured the rainbow well over the lake. Excellent perspective with wonderful color. Very well done and thanks for sharing. Best regards. Jusni

Hello Aires,

The elusive rainbows are not easy to capture, I had my try the other day but the result wasn't good like yours is!
This is a well balanced composition with the framing tree and the three sailboats, and the well lit construction by the pier is an eye-catcher!
