The construction of what is going to become the biggest labyrinth in Central Europe has begun in Stará Ľubovňa. Local citizens have already started work on the project by planting hedgerow and modifying the terrain near the river Jakubianka. You can already see the labyrinth take shape but as of now, the trees are far too small – barely 30cm. According to the company responsible for the project, it will take around 2 years for them to grow to 2 meters and be the perfect height for the opening of the labyrinth.

The project itself is inspired by Poland’s ice labyrinth, which fascinated the developers. Stará Ľubovňa’s newest attraction will cover over 6,400 square meters and will be divided into 9 parts and surrounded by the city’s gardens. A crucial part of the project will be the town’s history, which will be connected to the labyrinth itself. The developers hope that this way, more tourists will be visiting Stará Ľubovňa in the future.

Entry into the park as a whole will be free of charge. There, you will find the perfect spots for picnics, volleyball fields and other attractions. The labyrinth however, will have an admission fee. At the centre of it all, you’ll find a tower, overlooking the surrounding landscape.
