Throughout history, people traded amber along this route, leading through Hungary, Slovakia and Poland. Cycle from the artists' town of Szentendre along the Danube bend, then up to Banska Stiavnica, an old mining town. Here the ride gets more challenging, crossing the Tatra mountains. Your reward is the superb view of the breathtaking Slovak countryside dotted with traditional mountain villages, meadows and pastures. Biking into Poland visit the pigrimage site of Kalwaria Zebrzydowska. Finish in Krakow, rivaling Prague with its historical monuments.
