One Way Only:
This is designated as a directional trail.
Piecky is a beautiful and valuable tour through one of the largest gorges of Slovak Paradise with countless wooden benches, chains, and ladders on the way, along with a lot of water in the form of various streams, waterfalls, and small ponds. And of course, the pristine nature of Slovak Paradise—one of the most beautiful national parks in Slovakia!
Need to Know
