Walking the Way of Saint James is one of the most beautiful ways for you to get to know Slovakia. The Slovak route begins in Košice and continues westwards up to Bratislava. But it does not end there. You can walk all the way to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain.

The route in Slovakia
The Way of Saint James is a unique opportunity to get to know and enjoy the natural beauties and cultural heritage of the country while developing your spirituality and self-knowledge.
In Slovakia the route is divided into seven sections, each consisting of several one-day stages. Since most pilgrims cannot walk the whole way at once,
they choose just one part of it.

Friends of the Way of Saint James
A lively community of pilgrims and wonderful open-hearted people has gathered around the Way of St. James in Slovakia. They are represented by the civic association Friends of the Way of St. James in Slovakia. The association has become the meeting point for pilgrims to exchange information and advice as well as to organise presentations, pilgrimages and many other activities.

Support us financially
With its mountains, valleys, rivers, forests, medieval towns, churches, ruins, castles, chateaux, Slovakia is the perfect country for rural tourism. It needs very little to make it happen. Creating an effective marking system and a dense network of facilities pilgrims can sleep and eat at can make all this natural and cultural heritage available to everybody.
Pilgrimages combine physical, mental and spiritual well-being with sustainable regional development.
Your contribution will make a difference.
In Central Europe we have become the right hand of the Spanish Federation of Friends of the Way of Saint James, which has brought together all local and regional Camino organisations in Spain since 1987.
We highly appreciate the fact that the Episcopal Conference of Slovakia has not only approved and blessed our project, but also chosen us from among all Camino initiatives in the country to be the only organisation the different dioceses are to cooperate with in this respect.
