An industrial town spreading out from its appealing historic nucleus, Žilina is used by most visitors as a base to explore Malá Fatra National Park's hiking trails and cliff-perched forests, 9km east from town along the Váh River. But for those who don't hurry through, Žilina's enormous pedestrian squares, art-nouveau buildings and beer-fuelled nightlife provide enjoyable diversions.
