Detailed route description

The Zlatnica nature trail runs in between the villages of Nižná Boca and Vyšná Boca. The 8-kilometre trail was developed in 2004 and consists of 11 stops with information boards. It focuses on mining history and the surrounding culture. It is available throughout the year for pedestrians and cyclists. At 11 stops you can learn about the history of mining, local attractions and nature. The Zlatnica nature trail passes through the localities Pod Oleškovou, V Kiari, V Kúte, Geplovô, Ochimstál, Pri Mlyne, and follows along the mineral spring of Kyselka, a shepherd´s hut and evangelical churches in Vyšná and Nižná Boca.

If you are looking for a simple trip with children, the nature trail will be an ideal choice for you. Also, the village of Nižná Boca is worth seeing, and especially the observation tower Krajčov Vrch, which keeps an eye on the village from about 1000 meters above the sea level.
