The Carpathian cycle route

The Carpathian cycle route no. 016 (red mark) is part of the cycle route, which leads from Poland through Slovakia and Ukraine to Romania. One part of it - from Stakčín to Ruské sedlo, we biked on an e-bike. It was a unique experience, which you can read more about on this link. When you choose to explore the Poloniny and Vihorlatské vrchy mountains from the saddle of a bicycle along this cycle route, visit the lookout tower near Starina, from which you will have this largest source of drinking water in Central Europe "in the palm of your hand".

The route on the Slovak side continues through Stakčín and Sninské rybníky ponds to the foot of Vihorlat, from where you can go through Strihovce to the village of Šmigovec, where you can visit the wooden church of the Ascension of the Lord. The cycle route continues through Dúbrava to Ubľa, where there is a border crossing with Ukraine. In the village, you can visit a tourist information center. A list of all TICs in the Upper Zemplín area can be found on this link.

The total length of the route is approximately 64 km.
