For those who like horse-riding there is a ridingschool. For mountain-bikers there are good facilities and the village is a good staring point for trips to the nearby Low Tatras. In winter you can make use of the nearby skiing and cross-country skiing centres. Slovakia is famous for its spas with healing and hot springs which you can find in this area too.
