Hikemates who, together with the regional authorities of Košice and the regional tourism organization, were behind the project.

“The Volovské vrchy refuge will provide a safe haven for all mountain lovers,” he said.

Visitors can use the Volovské Vrchy building for accommodation with a total capacity of 10 beds, and as a place to eat – it is equipped with a stove and a dining area.
