The tourist route in Vihorlatské vrchy starts in the village of Podhoroď, leads through the quarry of Beňatina, also known as Little Croatia, through the fortified settlement of Starý Koňuš and ends in the village of Koňuš.

The route is about 13 kilometres long and it is possible to return the same way.

“This part belongs among the unknown corners of Zemplín,” said Zuzana Argalášová from the Administration of the Vihorlat Protected Area, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The route has six tourist information points, three tables and five benches.

“There are several interesting stops along the route. For example, the fortified settlement. The view of Východoslovenská Pahorkatina is beautiful,” Argalášová noted for TASR.

The route has a medium level of difficulty but offers spectacular views.
