| Orava belongs to one of the most typical natural and historical region of Slovakia. The boundaries of Orava consist of huge mountains and rolling hills. The northern boundary, shared with Poland, is formed by the Beskydy mountains and in the west by the eastern parts of the Kysuce vrchovina. In the south-west is the huge Mala Fatra range, in the south the Choc mountains, in the east the Western Tatra. Only in the north - east Orava is open, and this area is part of the Orava - Novy Targ (Poland) lawlands. The town of Dolný Kubín is a centre of Orava region.
Orava is much sought out by tourists, vacationists and sportsmen, and particulary the Orava dam lake because of the opportunities it provides to them and to anglers. The charming dominants - Velky a Maly Rozsutec, Choc, Kubinska hola, Salatin, Pilsko and Babia hora mountains, the pleasant valleys with their rumbling brooklets, the preserved wood architecture, the living people´s customs and folklore - they all leave in Orava´s visitor unforgetable impressions.
The Orava lake has become a looked for place for relaxation, fishing and water sports as yachting, water motoring and water skiing. The Orava lake is a centre of tourisme as well, since many trips and tours can be started from here into the surrounding Oravska Magura and Slovak Beskides as well as into the more remonte Oravice and Rohace mountains.
The most ancient art - historic Orava memorial is the Orava Castle, in which there is at present located the Orava Museum. Primary references concerning the Castle date from the 1st half of the 13th century. Orava Castle has been continuously rebuilt from the 13th century to the present. The largest reconstructions were made at the end of the 15th and the first half of the 16th century. Also, the Turzo family made considerable additions to the castle from 1.556 to 1.626. In 1.800 the castle was destroyed by a great fire. It was saved, however, because of immediate repairs made to the roofs of the lower castle, and repairs to the middle and lower castle in the mid 19th century.
