Pieninská cesta
Pieninská cesta
Pedestrian/bikers road running alongside Dunajec river, linking Polish town of Szczawnica with Slovak village of Cerveny Klastor. Good alternative to, or way back from the rafting on Dunajec - but mainly to Slovak rafters, as Polish one starts much further up the river.
Duration: 2-3 hours

Apparently it all has started as a private project, when in 1870 Józef Szalaj, owner of Szczawnica, started construction of a road right on east bank of river Dunajec. He's done a small part from Szczawnica (Grajcarek stream) to the Lesnica stream, and the rest of it was built by Academy of Learning from Krakow. Only the northern beginning is in Poland, the rest of it - the very most of it was built in, what was then Hungary, now it is Slovakia. But still - whole project was designed, paid and built with Polish money and labour, so I think it is important to give Polish name of this place: Droga Pienińska, as the name in the title of this TripAdvisr attraction is in Slovak. Road follows Dunajec river from Szczawnica to Czerwony Klasztor (Cerveny klastor), and can be used as a retourn trip after rafting on Dunajec, but only for those, who rafted with Slovakian entrepreneurs, as Polish rafting trail is much longer. Also it can be combined with much more tiring trip across Pieniny ridge, from Czerwony Klasztor to Leśnica (the village), and then down the stream to the starting point. Superb views of surrounding mountains with rock walls, but watched in own pace, with no rush of the speed of the river current, when you rafting. Only problem for us was overcrowding and mix of pedestrians and cyclists, which lead to some dangerouos situations, but luckily nothing has ever happened.
