In the village of Mošovce, you can spend some unforgettable time by taking a walk through the local park. It’s not just a usual park, but rather a typical English park, where groups of trees give way to grassy meadows and ponds. Covering 16.5 hectares, it belongs to the largest parks in Central Slovakia. Furthermore, one of the most remarkable monuments of the Turiec region - a Rococo-Classical Manor House, is located inside. The park was founded by baron Révay, probably even before the building of the new manor house was started. Distance from Winter Park Martinky: 37 km.
