Book Kráľova Studňa - the Great Fatra

Kráľova studňa, to which this beautiful narrative publication is dedicated, lies in a magical, relatively rugged mountain environment in the south of the highest ridge part of the Great Fatra. As its editor, publicist Fedor Mikovič, wrote – it offers the reader a walk through a mountain landscape full of exceptionalities, with a landscape worthy of admiration and interest.
