Passing through the region of Liptov, from Liptovský Mikuláš to Ružomberok, one must notice a huge water area of the dam Liptovská Mara. It is the largest water reservoir in Slovakia in terms of the confined water volume.
The Kunov Dam is a suburban holiday resort, located only five kilometres from the town of Senica.
