DRAGON NIGHTS AT CHOPOK 2017
Come you too and enjoy the third anniversary of unique Dragon Nights. Families with children can look forward to an evening cableway journey from the northern and southern slopes of Mt Chopok, a three-headed dragon sculpture spitting fire and dust, a rich animation programme for small ones and grownups, and competitions and delicious specialties.
We have prepared two exceptional evenings with an attractive programme for you.
Take a cable car from the southern or northern side of Mt Chopok in the evening and head for typical Liptov´s traditions. The most famous shepherds Maťko and Kubko will welcome you at Restaurant Rotunda (2004 m asl.) with a number of games and tasks for small and big visitors. They will teach you how to drive or milk sheep, you´ll search for the brigand treasure, you´ll learn typical Liptov crafts, and every visitor will attend a School of Liptov Dialect. Of course, everything under the supervision of the friendly Dragon Demián, the legendary guide of Demänovská Valley, who will shoot out fire and dust for joy during the Dragon Nights.
At Rotunda Restaurant (2,004 m asl.) you can taste gastronomic specialties from a typical Liptov cuisine such as „bryndzové halušky“ (dumplings with a kind of sweet cheese), „pečené buchty“ (a kind of stuffed sponge cake) or „chlieb s masťou a cibuľou“ (bread with lard and onion).
