Welcome to Pieniny National Park
Though it’s the smallest of Slovakia’s national parks at 21 sq km, there’s no shortage of variety in Pieniny National Park (www.pienap.sk). Towers of rock jut from patches of forest, rising above the Dunajec River. Walking trails thread through peaceful meadows, aflutter with 766 species of butterfly. Most travellers arrive for lazy raft rides along the Dunajec River, the seam separating Slovakia’s share of these wilds from Poland. Walking and cycling trails for all abilities attract family travellers, while cross-country ski trails are increasingly luring visitors in winter.
