Description

The area of the former stone quarry below the Ježová Hillis a nice sight-seeing place and also a very popular place of rest for the residents of the town of Detva. It is located in its western part, today this place has the character of a very nice natural park.

The natural park below Ježová Hill is an ideal place for relaxation in the nature, while you do not have to climb unreal altitude meters or climb various rock formations. In addition, the impressive view of Detva and the southern slope of Poľana is also open from the location.

If you look at this natural park properly, it will surely evoke a kind of symbolic labyrinth with trees, a small lake and small stone buildings. In addition, this park is also a prime example of how to revitalize and give a new form of quarry after mining activity.
