Sports, culture, hiking, relaxation

Villa Zachar is located in the Tatras region that offers an unlimited number of experiences and interesting localities such as High Tatras, Slovak Paradise, and Levoča Hills. Spending winter or summer holidays in our Villa means enjoying all kinds of activities, relaxation opportunities, and also adrenaline wherever you look.

You may go down the Dunajec river on wooden rafts but adrenaline sports lovers may go for modern rafts. The Black Stork Golf Course in Veľká Lomnica and Belianska Cave in the Belianske Tatry Natural Preserve within the TANAP territory or the Vrbov swimming baths open all year round are unique places where you can relax, get more energy, and recover.

Where to go to enjoy culture?

We recommend a tour around the ancient town of Kežmarok where you can find many cultural monuments - Kežmarok Castle, wooden evangelical Church of the Holy Trinity – UNESCO, new evangelical church with the mausoleum of Imrich Thököly - Basilica Minor of the Holy Cross, Evangelical Lyceum with its old library, Historical Cemetery, Museum of Interior Styles, Paulinus Church, Town Hall, Reduta Building, and Old Market.

Every year, during the second week of July, the European Folk and Crafts Festival takes place in Kežmarok where more than 200 local and foreign craftsmen present their skills and mastery and where visitors may enjoy performances by Slovak and foreign folk groups, rich accompanying and evening programs performed on three stages, special dishes offered by the Slovak "salaš" restaurant, castle tours and visit a number of other interesting places - Strážky Manor, Spiš Castle, and Stará Ľubovňa Castle that make perfect destinations worth visiting.
