Apart from the cycling route, a further 30 projects have been approved and are now in the implementation phase, mainly in the Snina district. Most of these involve the reconstruction of accommodation or catering facilities.

"Glamping, experiential forms of accommodation, a bee farm, as well as e-bike rentals will soon become a reality," Majerský outlined.

Meanwhile, development of tourism in the Snina district and Poloniny National Park, is continuing with the €1.15 million Carpathian Mobility project which is converting a road between Ruské and Berestová poľanka into a 4.6 km cycle route. The path will connect the Poloniny trail and the historic Porta Rusica route on the Slovak-Polish border.
