A stay in nature is allowed as long as people remain in the district of their residence.

For those who live in Košice-okolie (surroundings), Zádielska Valley in Slovenský Kras (Slovak Karst) National Park is a popular place.

When the sun sets above the valley, it offers spectacular views. Here are some.

The valley was created by Chotárny Stream in massive limestone layers, which is also called Blatnica or Blatný Stream.

The stream created small waterfalls and cascades.

The overall length of the valley is about 10.3 kilometres and the starting point is located at an altitude of 1,005 metres above sea level under Osadník Peak.

Part of the valley is the about 3.8-kilometre long gorge called Zádielska.
