"Wyspianski" is a modern Hotel in the historic centre. Here we usually book the first and the last night.
Krakow: Wawel castle and cycle route along Vistula river
Zab, Poland's highest village
We then cycle down the mountain, past farm carts laden with hay
The folk culture of the people who live in the Tatras, the Gorale, has been preserved in their music, their songs and their local costume
Cable car brings us back to the top of Gubalowka
We cycle downhill...
through the long Dzianisz village...
...to Chocholow, a village which is now a "living open-air museum" of timber architecture
Hotel in Lopuszna
In the distance we see High Tatras
and green Beskid Mountains.
Bialka - Gorge

The castle...
...and the Hotel in Niedzica
The classical picture of Pieniny - Mountain: The Red Monastery and "Three Crowns Mountain". Here we start the most spectacular part of our tour.

We cycle along the "Pieniny Way", a narrow ledge open only to walkers and cyclists, carved out of breathtaking limestone cliffs that run the entire length of the Dunajec Gorge.
Unlike the tourists on wooden rafts being steered down the river by Gorale we can stop at any time to take photographs
The little spa town of Szczawnica is a pleasant surprise...
...with its cycle-friendly separate lanes for cyclists
Spa gardens
The next stretch leads us through what is known...
as the "green Dunajec Gorge"

Old barns, granaries and hen-houses
Finally we arrive to Rytro.
Last short leg, along the Poprad river.
Historic little town Stary Sacz
An evening of Klezmer music brings the tour to a close.
