Round trip through Central Europe

Chapter I / I

Rubjerg Knude is the highest point on the west coast of Vendsyssel. The cliff is 60 m high, on top of which is a mi­grating dune of up to 30 m in height. It has been created by the wind tearing grains of sand from the cliff and blow­ing them up over the edge of the cliff, where they are then deposited.

The most comfortable and quick way to reach the top of Kriváň starts at the point called Tri studničky. The first serpentines of the green-marked footpath bring tourists to a place called Grúnik, which witnessed some bitter fighting between the partisans and the Nazi troops at the end of the Second World War. The path goes on from Grúnik crossing the slope of the Priehyba Mt. to a steep trough covered by falling debris from the Kriváň.

Not the most comfortable place to sleep, but it was worth it for the view.

An exceptionally attractive trip is the ascent to the Kriváň Mt. (2,494 m ) a stout peak in the western part of the High Tatras. This mountain is a multiple winner of enquiries about the mountain in Slovakia. It is easily recognisable for its conspicuously curved summit, which is the reason why it is called Kriváň (in English Curved Mount).
