New kilometres of cycling routes will appear in the surroundings of Stará Ľubovňa thanks to the Historic-Cultural-Natural Road Around the Tatras Project. A new cycling route of four kilometres connected Stará Ľubovňa and Hniezdne, now comes the next phase.

“The new phase will offer 26 kilometres of routes between the years 2019 and 2020,” said Alex Solár from the municipality of Stará Ľubovňa, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The project is related to the Euroregion Tatry, which consists of more than 250 kilometres of cycling, running, hiking and educative routes.

About 60 kilometres of cycling routes on both the Slovak and Polish side of the Tatras around the border of Kacwin Veľká Franková were built in the second phase, said Solár. Cycling routes from Ždiar to Tatranská valley, Spišská Belá and Kežmarok were built on the Slovak side, together with parts in Liptovský Mikuláš, Trstená, Stará Ľubovňa and Hniezdne.
