Breach of Hornád

The river Hornád leaves Hornádska kotlina just behind the village of Hrabušice.

Its water turns on a short section at full speed of the south, and in the northern part of Slovak Paradise it creates an approximately 16 kilometer long canyon – the Breach of Hornád.

I tis interesting by its long, deep and sleep rocky slopes, which skirt this river on the both sides. Since 1974, following the completion of a rope bridge at the mouth of Kláštorská roklina (canyon) and the „trail of Mountain Rescue“, which consisting of 7 metal junctions, approximately 320 meters of chains in exposed rocks, 140 rungs and 70 meters of wooden wood bridges, the entire length of the breach is accessible.
