    In the micro-region Chopok-South, 3 km in the north from the river Hron and in the valley of Vajskovský Creek (Vajskovský potok) at the altitude 480 m there is situated a small isolated village - Dolná Lehota. Its district belongs to the protected area of the National Park Low Tatras. You can get to the village if you go from the city Banská Bystrica to Podbrezová and take a side road through the village Lopej.
    Dolná Lehota was founded in 1358 on the territory of Ľupča lordship. The most interesting monuments in the village are with no doubts the evangelic belfry from the year 1818, the church of John Baptist from the year 1914, with wall-paintings from a Slovak painter J. Hanula and a memorial of miners Svätá Barborka (antimony was mined in this area).
    There is also a known recreational resort Krpáčovo, where you can swim and boat. On the road to Krpáčovo you can have a very nice view of Črmné landscape with a memorial to Slovak National Uprising devoted to the victims of the World War 2. In the surroundings, there are attractive destinations such as Žiarska hoľa, Skalka and Vajskovská valley (Vajskovská dolina). It is also possible to climb to the peaks of the Low Tatras - Chabenec, Chopok and Ďumbier.
    In the winter, we recommend short walks with cross-country ski and skiing on artificially snowed slopes in Krpáčovo (7 km), Tále (13 km) and Chopok-Srdiečko (16 km).
