Liptó (Slovak:"Liptov", Hungarian: "Liptó", German: "Liptau", Polish: "Liptów",
Latin: "Liptovium") is the name of a historic administrative county (comitatus) of the Kingdom of Hungary. Its territory is presently in northern Slovakia. Today, Liptovis only an informal designation of the corresponding territory.
Liptó county shared borders with the
Austrian land Galicia and the Hungarian counties Árva (Orava), Turóc (Turiec), Zólyom (Zvolen), Gömör-Kishont(Gemer-Malohont) and Szepes (Spiš). The county's territory was situated along the upper Váhriver between the High Tatras and the Low Tatras. Its area was 2,247 km² around 1910.
Today, the territory of the former Liptó county largely corresponds to the Ružomberok District and Liptovský Mikuláš District in northern Slovakia. Three villages (Liptovská Teplička, Štrba and Štrbské Pleso) are now in the Poprad District.
The capitals of the county were the Liptó Castle and the villages of Liptovská Mara and Nemecká Ľupča (
Partizánska Ľupča), and since 1677 the capital was Liptovský Mikuláš.
Liptó county as a Hungarian comitatus arose before the 15th century. In the aftermath of
World War I, the area became part of newly formed Czechoslovakia, as recognized by the concerned states in the 1920 Treaty of Trianon.
