Velka Raca is the highest peak in the Kysucke Beskydy mountain range at 1235 metres above sea level. A large part of this mountain range was declared a national nature reserve in 1976. The reason for the declaration was to preserve the remnants of an ancient rainforest where some cavern phenomena were found (Small and Large rock hollows), the only ones found in this region.
