Iron Curtain Trail: new certified CoE Route
The Iron Curtain Trail retraces the physical border stretching from the Barents Sea to the Black Sea dividing Easter and Western Europe for almost half a century following the end of the Second World War. Following this cyclable route for more than 10.000Km is a living lesson in European history of the 20th century. The Route combines cultural and historic sites linked to the political, military and ideological barrier erected during the Cold War as a reminder of peace and reconciliation that have followed the fall of the "Iron Curtain"
The Route features attractive and varied landscapes and unique habitats that emerged along the former border strip.
