By bicycle along the Poprad River

The trail leads thorugh an almost forgotten area near the border river of Poprad. While on the Polish side intense construction works are in progress, here the time has stopped. Our starting point is the border town of Piwniczna Zdrój. The road to the country border has been damaged by a landslide, as a result of which the traffic here is restricted, and trucks are banned. Cyclists may find the narrow path stressful, but this section is relatively short. A new bridge on the Poprad River, which will enhance the passability, is under construction. Having covered the complicated stretch, we are awarded with a magnificent ride over an almost virgin territory along the picturesque river until the village of Malý Lipník. read more
