Originally, the village Bodice was an independent village, but today it belongs to the city of Liptovský Mikuláš. The first written reference about the village is from the year 1314, when it belonged to the Bodický family. A Gothic church from the year 1370 has a choir from the 18-th century. The tower, which was built in 1854, is surrounded by allegedly oldest linden trees in the Liptov region.
The village Bodice is situated in the Low Tatras at the entrance of the Demänovská Valley (Demänovská dolina) - known by its beautiful nature, world known Demänovská Cave of Freedom (Demänovská jaskyňa slobody) and Demänovská Ice Cave (Demänovská ľadová jaskyňa) which attracts thousands of tourists from all around the world. In the summer, there are ideal conditions for hiking to the peaks in the surroundings, such as Chopok (2024 m) and the highest peak of the Low Tatras Ďumbier (2043 m). The West Tatras (Západné Tatry) with 2496 m high peak Kriváň (a national peak of Slovaks) are only 20 km far. A protected part of the Liptov land close to Demänovka with its original appearance also administratively belongs to the district of the village.
In the summer the water reservoir Liptovská Mara offers lots of very refreshing attractions. In the nearby village of Liptovský Ján there is a thermal water swimming pool and a resort of water entertainment, Aquapark Tatralandia, open all year long.
In the winter, skiers certainly should visit known ski resorts Jasná and Záhradky with exceptional ski conditions and sufficient number of ski lifts.
The fans of cross-country skiing will surely enjoy the surroundings.
NOTE: Administrative part of the town Liptovský Mikuláš.
