EuroVelo13 Iron Curtain bicycle path will lead through the line of the Iron Curtain, szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu says.
The path crosses 20 countries, 15 of them are members of the European Union. Its length is 10 400 km. These areas were abandoned, but you can see a lot of interesting things near the borders. If you ride the whole distance, you will get the feel of the countries’ culture, cuisine, architecture and environmental capabilities.
According to szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu, EuroVelo will cross Hungary in the southwest border. It will connect to the Slovenian, Austrian, Serbian and Croat sections. The development is making good progress in the upper sections, but infrastructure is being planned and transformed to the path in the South. The bicycle path must be adequate to the European standards. For the designation of the route, it was an aspect that buildings, which are representing the places and building of the Iron Curtain, must be close to EuroVelo.
The opening of the Hungarian section will be on 19th August. For this event, a cycling tour will be organized as well. You can also apply for it HERE.
