Bicycle Trail along the Drava

The cultural attractions along the Drava River path are links to the historical development of this region. Numerous archaeological findings testify to the early settlements here, and many local clubs and organisations are trying hard to preserve their authentic cultural heritage.

Along the way, you’ll have the chance to visit various museums, churches and castles and experience many traditional celebrations, among which many of the old traditions are displayed, that here in this area, more so than in others, we do not intend to forget.


DRAVA - VIA VARAŽDIN

Cycle on paved paths all the way. From the Vič border crossing all the way till the place of Legrad you will be passing through the cities of Dravograd, Maribor and Ptuj in Slovenia and Varaždin and Prelog in Croatia. The path will lead you through green plains, forest landscapes and lakes. The river Drava will be disappearing and appearing again along the path, mostly in its natural riverbed.

If you want to enjoy nature, you will choose paths whose majeur routes pass through fields, smaller places and gravel roads through pure nature. You will start at the Vič border crossing, and onthe Slovenian side you will experience the beautiful slopes of Pohorje and, after having crossed the Croatian border, you can expect relaxation having a view on wide fields and long cycling along lake mounds all the way to Legrad where the river Mura flows in the river Drava.

DRAVA - VIA MEĐIMURJE

The same as on the previous routes, nature and the river Drava interchange with smaller populated places. Then along the river Drava mound you will pass through the city of Ormož and the path will lead you to the border crossing with Croatia where along the paved road to Legrad you will get acquainted with the smaller places of Međimurska županija district.
