If you always wanted to know the history of coal mining in the town of Handlová, now is the time. The educational mining trail tells you everything about the attractions of this mining town, which you have not known yet.

The educational trail was created at the initiative of the Handlová Mining Association and is intended for the general public. On 13 information boards located in the very bosom of nature you will get acquainted with the activities connected with coal mining in Handlová, as well as with the fauna and flora of the surrounding area.

For a better experience, old photos, which are placed on individual information boards, also bring the atmosphere. The route is 9.5 km long and takes about 5 hours.

You can relax and gain strength in two relaxation zones - Three Wells and One Well. Children in these relaxation areas can have fun on the merry-go-round and adults can roast for change.

The walkway is available all year round along the green hiking trail. The trail goes up in the first meters, but then just a quiet walk along the plain awaits you there.
