Nature Interest

The so-called Púchov Rock was in the past a majestic limestone formation scattered with large cracks in several parts. His picturesque shape reminded the contemporary of the great Hussy liver, or even the imperial Mary Terézia, in the company of her court councilor VA Kounica. Nowadays, rock has a different shape since the stone has been mined, it is significantly smaller.

Puchov Rock has a rich and famous history. He (among others) housed a people interested in the culture that originated in the territory of northern Slovakia and which, according to this finding, was named after the Púchov culture. The rock is also associated with the reputation captured by Jankom Matúškom. This reputation tells us that the Big Friday was opened, and from his stomach the fairytale treasures. Beda, however, who would be tempted for them. (The legend was later re-enriched by KJ Erben in the Ballad Treasure.) Púchov Rock today serves as a recreational and tourist site. Its advantage lies in the fact that it lies not far from the city, yet in the countryside. From the top of the rock there is a nice, hoc limited view. Below the top there is a gazebo with a seating area. A tourist path from Púchov leads to the rock.
