SK, Bardejov – Trips Around II

Published: 28.4.2021
Not only the notorious High and Low Tatras or Great and Little Fatra, but also smaller mountains in northeastern Slovakia boast nature, protected animals and plants, but also beautiful views from the network of restored lookout towers. Therefore, take the opportunity of a slight relaxation of measures and get to know this less visited corner of Slovakia.

In addition to the preserved historical core of Bardejov or the healing springs in the world-famous Bardejov Spa, well-marked hiking trails and beautiful natural scenery of the Čergov and Busov mountains await you in the northeast of Slovakia. So let's go for nature walks.

King´s Well

Near the Slovak-Polish border lies the village of Lenartov, which is known primarily for its rich history. There was a trade route from Poland to Galicia. From ancient times, a well (spring) and the ruins of the Králova studna inn remained here. However, thanks to local enthusiasts, these attractions have been expanded to include a lookout tower, which has become a popular destination for many tourists.

The lookout tower has four floors, the highest of which is covered by a roof. In ideal weather, you can see really far. You will get a view not only of the entire Čergov ridge, the Busov hill, Magura or the scattered surrounding villages, but even the Polish Javorina. At the lookout tower itself there are tables and benches with a fireplace, where you can roast burritos or just enjoy relaxing surrounded by nature. The easiest access to the lookout tower is from the already mentioned village of Lenartov, but it is also possible to ascend the neighboring village of Obručné along marked hiking trails. The journey is not difficult, so families with children can handle it in less than an hour and a half.

Busov Mountains

The Busov Mountains, included in the geomorphological unit of the Low Beskydy Mountains, are among the smallest and at the same time least frequented tourist mountains in Slovakia. Nevertheless, it offers interesting hiking trips.

Stebnícká Magura

For example, you can go to Stebnícka Magura (899.9 m above sea level), which extends north of Bardejov and with a television transmitter at the top forms the dominant feature of the surroundings. The eastern and northern part of the hill is a national nature reserve. Access to the top is via the red sign from Bardejovské lázně via the Čerešňa saddle or also via the red sign from the village of Zborov, or the blue sign from the village of Vyšný Tvarožec.

A nice hike is also to the highest hill of the same name in the Busov mountains in the western half of the mountains, approximately 10 kilometers northwest of Bardejov. The hill is part of a significant massif. These are mostly forested mountains providing only limited views. At the very top of Busov there is a small meadow with a wooden cross, from which it is possible to see, in addition to the surrounding border hills, also a part of the High Tatras. Access is via a green sign from Gaboltov or Cigeľka.

Gaboltov – poutnické místo

If you go to Busov from the village of Gaboltov, do not forget to see it a bit, because it has an interesting history associated with the work of the Knights Crusaders. If you choose the neighboring village of Cigeľka as a starting point, then the Greek Catholic Church of St. Kosma and Damián from 1816, as well as the source of the mineral water of the same name.
