The town of Holíč in western Slovakia started construction work on the cycling route that will connect Holíč with the village of Kopčany.
Its aim is to connect Holíč Castle with the Church of Saint Margaret of Antioch and then connect it with a bridge over the river Morava near Kopčany, which continues to the Moravian village of Mikulčice. It will be financed by the operational programme Interreg V-A Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
The modernised cycling route and tourist trails, which should be completed next year, will reach 2.7 kilometres in length. Archaeological research is ongoing due to construction work.
