Cyril and Methodius Route – Cultural Route of the Council of Europe

SLOVAKIA

Cyril and Methodius Route in Slovakia

In Slovakia, the marked trails of the Cyril and Methodius Route connect the important centres of Great Moravia in the 9th century, i.e. Bratislava, Nitra, Trenčín, Kopčany, Bojná, Smolenice, Branč. On the signposts of the Slovak Hiking Club you can find dark blue stickers with the white symbol of the Cyril and Methodius Route.

Both trails follow the marked routes of the Cyril and Methodius Route in the Czech Republic and thus connect important Cyril and Methodius and Great Moravian centres.
