While being increasingly discovered by tourists, the Carpathians are still more of an insider tip, especially among cyclists. A small but fine accommodation and catering infrastructure has developed in the area, and you will find good food and lodging at the end of each day trip – even without prebooking. The region is popular for its great hospitality, and the local population, including the landlords, give travelers from all around the world a hearty welcome. Every time we come back, the locals receive us with a hearty welcome and call us by our first names. Weight watchers beware: all meals served are quite hearty as well.
