A new hiking route opened, copying the old trade route used by locals in the past when they used to go to the market with their products, from the village of Vladiča to Čeremcha in Poland.
Ján Čurpek, mayor of Vladiča, explained the historical significance of the route.
“Women used to weave carpets, men dedicated their time to washtub making,” he said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “Barter worked on the Polish side, that’s why our people took their hand-made products and used the old road to get to markets in Čeremcha.”
He said that there used to be life in the village. Unfortunately, almost nothing is there now, since the village was moved.
