The mobile application called ”Cycling Slovenia Hungary”, that was developed in the framework of Iron Curtain Cycling project for helping the visitors of the Slovenian – Hungarian border region – Lenti and its surroundings, Raba Region, Pomurje region (Murska Sobota, Lendava, Ljutomer), Mura –Drava region (Ptuj and its surroundings) – in getting familiar and wandering it, is available now.
The geographically, ethnically organic Slovenia-Hungary cross border region was divided for long by the Iron Curtain enforcing the borderlines set after World War II. Relations faded, municipalities came to a social, economic decline. The cross border region offers great opportunities for bicycle tourism, which might be the breakout point in the rural area. Several projects have already aimed this goal, however a connected and signposted bicycle road network covering the whole region and a complex biker-friendly offer built on this network has not yet been achieved.
