A new attraction awaits adrenaline junkies in the Kremnické Mountains.
The hardest ferrata route in Slovakia, marked with the letter F, has been introduced in the ferrata area in Skalka. Via ferratas range in difficulty, denoted with the letters B, C, E and F.
New rope bridge
“Climbing routes are connected with various technical features, such as bird nests, a pendulum, a beam and rope bridges,” said Alexander Ferenčík, mayor of Kremnica, as quoted by the SITA newswire.
Route Via Commo, a level C in difficulty, ends at the peak of rock massive. From this point, climbers use the 32-metre-long rope bridge, suspended at a height of 35 metres, to get to rock ridge, which offers views of the Skalka, Krížna and Turiec region.
The smallest visitors can enjoy time in Children’s Paradise with their parents when entering via ferrata world.
Only with ferrata sets
“Visitors are discovering Kremnica more and more and it is becoming a favourite destination for trips and holidays not only for Slovaks but also for foreign guests,” said Jiří Pěč, director of Regional Organisation of Tourism, as quoted by the SITA newswire.Read more
