Description

Dvoly is located near Brezová pod Bradlom in the Brezová part of the Little Carpathians. This is the place where the partisan section of Ján Repta of II. M. R. Štefánik Partizan Brigade was organized, lived and eventually fought. There were more partisan groups around. In Krajné under the leadership of V. Medvedev (up to 400 men), Polianka under the leadership of Štefan Čuval and in the Podjavorina region, the group called "Hurban" under the leadership of Miloš Uhr. In addition, there were also three Soviet partisan groups nearby.

The first struggle in this area broke out on 8 September 1944, when partisans attacked the German convoy near Košariská. The Repta's group also fought harsh battles in the U Rehušov settlement, where the Slovak National Uprising memorial is also located. The partisans took various diversionary actions around and together with the Red Army liberated Brezová pod Bradlom on April 7, 1945. After the liberation, the Slovak National Uprising monument was built in memory of these events in Dvoly.

There are marked hiking and cycling trails from the surrounding villages leading to Dvoly and the fastest way to get here is the yellow tourist trail from Brezová pod Bradlom alongside the former refugee camp (there you can park your car, because you cannot go further by car). You continue through the beautiful valley until you come to the blue tourist mark and it will lead you to the monument. There is also a hunting lodge with a sitting area and a small lake at the monument.

By continuing along the forest road, you can go to Dolné or Horné Košariská and from there follow the nice cycling trail along the Brezová dam back to Brezova pod Bradlom. There are more opportunities for refreshment in Košariská. The circuit has a total lenght of about 8 km and is suitable for hiking and cycling.
