Štrba-Spišske Podhradie (Train) Spišska Podhradie - Levočska dolina (Cycling)
22.08.2009 - 22.08.2009 18 °C
When I waked up I was so tired thah I couldnt cycle.That was probably because I wasnt sleeping 1 night before on train to Košice. Weather was still stable, but I still decided for a train. First I took a train from Štrba to Spisške Nova Ves for quick run trough old town, than from Spišska Nova Ves to village called Spišske Vlahy. Also here was not much to see. Something special was small electric train from Spisške Vlahy to Spisške Podhradie, town bellow Spišski castle.
Castle is huge and special, but if you want to visit it, you have to climb 200 meters. The village is full of gypsies and I wasnt able to carrie my bike with me up to the castele. That was the reason why I didnt go up there. After that it starts raining. No metter heavy rain I decided to cycle to Slovensky Raj national park. After I reached petrol station near Levočka Dolina employee explained to me, that in Slovensky Raj there is an storm going on and I dont want to go in there, but I can go to near valley in resthouse to sleep. I trusted him and decided to overnight in this guest house.They where really friendly. After dinner I felt to sleep as a baby.
Because of rain I was able to cycle only 30 km and was on the bike arround 2 hours.
