Practical advices

A route with a moderate level of difficulty will allow you to test your fitness. Remember that the terrain has a huge impact on how many kilometres you can cover. Trails on flat roads are less strenuous than those on hills or mountain roads.


Planning a group trip? Match the route to the fitness of the weakest participant.


A helmet and light clothing made of breathable materials will be essential for safety and comfort on the route. Other than that, only put on the essentials. Heavy luggage will make your ride more difficult. Also, think about what you will carry the necessary items in. We suggest a backpack or panniers for your bike.


Be prepared for possible breakdowns on the route. It is a good idea to carry the most important tools for a quick fix, such as inner tubes or patches, a pump or a multi-tool. Make sure you have enough water and food, as well as navigation equipment.


Is it looking like a warm and sunny day? Remember sunscreen and sunglasses. If you are planning sightseeing or other activities along the route, a bike lock will also be very useful. Before you leave, carefully examine your route for the trip. Consider whether your skills and equipment are adequate for the level of difficulty of the route.

    In this village, you will find the wooden Church of the Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mary and a World War I cemetery. The temple is built on the foundations of a former Greek-Catholic tserkva from 1716. The building was extensively rebuilt in the second half of the 20th century. Following the displacements after World War II, the temple was adapted as a Roman Catholic church. About 600 Austro-Hungarian and Russian soldiers are buried in the local cemetery.

    Every year, on the first Sunday in July, an "odpust" party is held here in honour of the patron saint of mothers and pregnant women.
