Tatra sights

The bicycle route leads through the area of northern Spiš, the forests of Spišská Magura and the Pieniny National Park with beautiful panoramic views on the High Tatras. The bicycle route beginns ca. 1 km behind the village of Ždiar Strednica, where a forest path springs on the right. The exit from the main road is located behind an information panel standing near the junction. Renovated asphalt forest road leads us to the village of Osturňa, where a road sign saying "Łapszanka" directs cyclists towards the border crossing point. The beauty of the surrounding nature adds splendour to the path leading to the mountain pass. Having passed the border crossing point, we turn left in accordance with the local signs. Local roads with little traffic lead us to Jurgów, which is located less than two kilometres from the border with Slovakia and the settlement of Podspády. read more
