European Regional Development Fund
Almost 900 km of safe cycling routes have been designated. The route connects the religious sites of Győr-Moson-Sopron, Komárom-Esztergom County and the Highland districts of Trnava and Bratislava, passing through more than 100 villages and many sights. Cyclists can take part in one-day and multi-day tours where they can also discover the most impressive and remote religious sites and sacral values of the border region. The network of cycling pilgrimage routes is perfectly linked to the existing and operating EuroVelo6 “Danube Route” and EuroVelo13 “Iron Curtain” international cycling routes.
To facilitate orientation on the Sacra Velo pilgrimage routes, there is a variety of uniformly branded cycle signs, as well as signs to information points describing the sacral sites and to rest stops with the Sacra Velo logo at altogether 40 locations. Cycling rest areas have also been set up in 83 locations in 64 municipalities. They have been designed with cycling and the environment in mind, in addition to benches and tables, a bicycle rack and a 50-liter waste bin have been installed to ensure the stop is used in a civilized way.
Visitors can get informed more about the religious values of the settlement at the information points of 93 municipalities and with the help of 139 information boards with maps. By scanning the QR codes on the information boards, cyclists can find out more about the sights and attractions on the Sacra Velo website. In addition to the website, the tours are also supported by a mobile app developed by the project. Other infrastructure elements have also been procured, installed and built, including e-bike charging stations and two cycling centers in the villages of Szil and Báč in Slovakia.
