Description

The construction of an alternative line to Slavošovce was started in 1941. The reason was the affiliation of the southern Slovak territories to Hungary after the Vienna Arbitration, whereby the paper mill in Slavošovce lost its contact with the world.

The construction of the tunnel was completed in April 1944. However, this tunnel was never used in real operation, because after World War II there was no practical reason to complete the planned track. Forcibly detached territories were returned to Czechoslovakia.

On the route Slavošovce - Magnetizovce, we can find two tunnels and one 120 m long viaduct, which is an ageless proof of the skill of our ancestors. They are cared for by local civic associations and can be easily reached on foot or by bike. After about 2.4 kilometers of being in the dark, we find ourselves at the other end of the tunnel under Homôlka. The pedestrian crossing takes about 45 minutes and since it is completely dark in the tunnel, do not forget the flashlight.

The tunnels are freely accessible all year round and also a marked cycling trail from Magnetizovce to Slavošovce with a length of approximately 5 km leads there.
