From its small historic nucleus, busy Žilina spreads along the banks of the Váh River. As a major town close to Malá Fatra National Park, Žilina is a prime draw for hiking enthusiasts looking for a lively base. But don't rush to the wilds straight away: Žilina's postcard-pretty squares, grand cathedral and cafe scene are worth an afternoon.
