  • Spectacular views of very nice less populated hiking trails. I recommend a weekend getaway. Especially out of season, the view of the three crowns of the Tatra mountains.

  • The Pieniny has long attracted tourists, and in recent years have become even more popular. It doesn't surprise me, because, as in the title I wrote that this is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. I think that who once looked in these pages always will be returned. The Pieniny National Park does not have the time or ability to get bored, it is tens of kilometres of trails, up for grabs. cyclists and wonderful and easy trails that lead through a variety of interesting corners of Polish and Slovak. And those who prefer the contact with water, will also find something for themselves, in the beautiful tradition of the rafting after the Dunajec River, or more extreme adventure of canoeing, or last popular rafting rafting. In winter you can go jogging, there are several routes, or choose any of the well naśnieżonych slopes, Pieniny national park is a very hospitable place, trails carefully marked, describing the attractions you will find in each of the trail, and for tired and bench will be found for the rest. So what do you do to be here? Spare a few free days, book one of the many in neighbouring villages, to pack a good pair of shoes, bike, skis {rental now everywhere like mushrooms after the rain}. At the end of a few pennies, a map and all the roads lead in Pieniny. I would recommend staying out of season {early spring, late autumn} those who like me want to alone with the unique nature of the National Park, a wonderful rest assured.

  • The Pieniny is the top beautiful attractive and quite affordable for beginners lovers of trekking and children. I strongly recommend the popular hiking trails (three crowns, Sokolica), cycling to the Red Monastery banks of the Dunajec, Dunajec and less popular, but also charming places, such as Przechyba.

  • Beautiful view. Nice people around. Good place for start hiking. The lady in small shop with maps and souvenirs was very helpful.
  • Amazing place. Great views. Interesting content. Must see!
  • Krasna priroda - sluzby, ako na slovensku. Bufet na hotdogy, ziadna restauracia. Pozrete na polsku stranu a tam restauracie, ihriska, sedenia ! Nerozumiem preco je Slovac, tak neschopna ! Prirodna rezervacia a po ceste nenajdete jeden smetny kos. Smutne !
  • This is just a beautiful place must see for everyone who loves hiking
  • Very secluded and beautiful place. But you must be ready to spend at least five-eight hours by hiking
