The oficial site of the Prievidza city
The Upper Nitra Region's local color offers its visitors unforgettable experiences. If it can be said a view of the world from the back of a horse is memorable, then the view from the seat of a bicycle of the beautiful Upper Nitra countryside is among those never to be forgotten moments in this picturesque region. A number of asphalt, farm and forest trails as well as open plains entice visitors to get acquainted with the architecture, customs and points of interest in this corner of Slovakia. Some of the bicycle trails are sporadically used during working days for hauling out wood. In such a case, it is necessary to watch out and when meeting with a motor vehicle it is better to wait for it to pass and then continue further.
Trails through the forest and at intersections are marked with a white square and green number.
