Česko-slovenské Cyrilometodějské putování Skalka u Trenčína - Velehrad

Summer Czech-Slovak hiking to Velehrad with children

The circle closes, after a year of hiking along the newly signposted trails of Cyril and Methodius Route, we return to the "crime scene" to Trenčín and set off again from Skalka to Velehrad. This year, we redesigned the phasing, shortened the daily sections, so that parents with children could complete the pilgrimage. There will be an accompanying car that will ensure the transport of the necessary stuff and possibly "collection" of pilgrims, parents and children, for which the daily stage will be too long.
