Beskyd Rallye brings out vintage car buffs

THE ANNUAL meeting of historical vehicles, Beskyd Rallye, takes part in the northern region of Slovakia, starting just over the border in the Czech Republic. The cars arrived in Velké Rovné, Slovakia, from where they continued to Kysucké Nové Mesto, Krásno nad Kysucou, Čadca and Turzovka, only to end up again in the Czech part of the Beskydy mountain range, which is shared by both countries and which gave the automotive event its name.

THE ANNUAL meeting of historical vehicles, Beskyd Rallye, takes part in the northern region of Slovakia, starting just over the border in the Czech Republic. The cars arrived in Velké Rovné, Slovakia, from where they continued to Kysucké Nové Mesto, Krásno nad Kysucou, Čadca and Turzovka, only to end up again in the Czech part of the Beskydy mountain range, which is shared by both countries and which gave the automotive event its name.

The event’s 17th year, which took place in July 2014, drew a record 150 vintage cars and motorbikes, which included a parade along the Kysuce region, a competition and a meeting among fans. Kysuce offered natural beauty and a rich programme, the TASR newswire wrote.
