Sultans Trail in the spotlight

  • The Sultans Trail also pops up at other websites. We were notified that we are mentioned at the website of Hostel 101 Dalmatinac in Vukovar, Croatia (not Split!. Of  course, this benefits us and helps to get our Trail known in other countries as well.
  • Moreover, we are happy that the Sultans Trail cycling route is presented at the website of EuropaFietsers.
