Liptovsky Mikulás (Liptószentmiklós in Hungarian) is the administrative, economic, cultural and tourist of the central Liptov region, with a population of about 33,000 people.

In 1677 the town was made the administrative centre of the Liptov province.

In 1713, the robber Juraj Jánosik was sentenced, tortured and hanged by the ribcage until death in the town. He later became a Slovak folk hero.

There are many interesting tourist attraction in and around town.

The town and the surrounding area is a popular spa and winter resort.

Hui Chin and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the town.

To make things even more interesting, it was here, that I've found out the Slovak name for ice-cream, zmrzlina. Try to say in a hurry!!
By the time I've mastered the word, my ice-cream have melted and my tongue never been the same again.

According to Hungarian tradition Mikulás (Said the same with and written the same way with accent and all), that is Santa Claus, comes on the 6th of December and fills up the socks of 'good' children with presents.
