  • Sitno at 1009m dominates the landscape, and the walk is best using the green mark path from Počúvadlo. Return in around 2 hours comfortably. Views are magnificent!

  • Pretty steep hill up, with beautiful views. We got back another way, going to see the castle ruins and taking adjecent path back to the clearing. As there are multiple parking spot make sure you're going the right way, as it is easy to go wrong way as there aren't a lot of signs along the route.
  • Nice and rather short hike (cca 1h following the green marking off the Počuvadlo lake). First half mid-steep very rocky path (parts in water in rainy May), then beautiful meadows and the final part (blue marking) steep, surrounded by tall rocks. The wooden stairs desperately ask for renewal - be careful. The view from the top is magnificent. You can see the entire collapsed mid of the stratovolcano crater. Nearby, you can find ruins of a castle, unavoidable giant transmitter tower (unfortunately). The Andrej Kmeto cottage is in a very poor condition.
