Zavadka nad Hronom village,

where our "Fujara" boarding house is located.

View from higher placed Zavadka street on the village beneath and Low Tatras mountains behind.

"Zavadka nad Hronom" is a small village enclosed in a picturesque Hron river basin between the "Low Tatra" Mountains on the north and "Muran Plateu" on the south.

See the bewitchingly beautiful nature near Zavadka nad Hronom.

What is in the willage ?

Except clean beautiful nature, traditional log/timber houses, nice people, and such requisites as church and several pubs, you can find here several basic food shops, indoor swimming pool with sauna (works all the year round), as well as lovely pond with transparent water (which in winter freezes, if you like ice skating) ....

Just oposite of our modern brick guest house (20 meters) stands this new traditional style log house:

The architechture of Zavadka village is a mixture of modern houses together with old traditionally build log houses.
Zavadka nad hronom is a living village. Many modern stone or recent brick buildings were build over the old wooden ones. Still, the wooden architechture in some parts of the willage preserved completely and today some people even start to uphold the tradiotion and build the timber buildings...

Modern European Education Centrum providing many activities and guided tours was built recently in the willage.

Through Zavadka village flows "unusually small" river Hron, which is in winter almost frosen. Hron has its spring near Kralova Hola (King's Peak) which is appr. 25 km away from Zavadka. "Zavadka nad Hronom" means Zavadka at Hron.

After Dunaj and Vah, Hron river is the third biggest river in Slovakia, and second biggest having its spring in Slovakia: Kralova Hola (King's Peak) is a very important triangulation point of Slovakia, a place where the biggest rivers in Slovakia (Váh - respectively the Cierny Váh, Hron, Hornád and Hnilec) have their spring.

Some old women still wear various versions of the traditional dress, which can be seen primarily during catholic church holidays or folklore festivals (in the latter case worn by traditional dance groups). The costumes are made of linen which has been beautifully embroided by local women.
