Approximately 21½ km (13½ miles)
After yesterday’s rain the sky had cleared and we had a lovely sunny day for our long walk beside the Danube. Baz and I revisited Europa Place, including a building that was formerly a Synagogue in the 19th Century.
Passed a Chapel, an Evangelical Church, a Reformed Church and a Catholic Church on the walk out of the town and, after crossing over the Váh River, rejoined the Eurovelo cycle route that here runs parallel to the Danube.
We had a picnic lunch beside the water before visiting the village of Iža, that has three churches, and then walked through Žitava before reaching our accommodation after sunset in the village of Radvaň nad Dunajom, which means “Radvaň above the Danube”.
We had walked for 5¼ hours and had covered around 21½ km (13½ miles): one of the longest day’s walks on the pilgrimage so far.
Thank you to Helena for the tasty breakfast and to Baz for joining the pilgrimage for a second day.
