Feistmantel’s Garden, a water lily lake, an artificial cave and Red Quarry are only some of the interesting places that can be reached through the Kysihýbel educational path for tourists. The six-kilometre path with 14 stops has been reconstructed after 25 years. It takes between three to three-and-a-half hours of walking.

“The Kysihýbel educational path came about 25 years ago on the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the forestry school,” said director of the school, Miroslav Ďurovič, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “After 25 years, the idea to renovate the path arose because it had deteriorated in recent years.”

The path presents the interesting natural, cultural and forestry localities of Kysihýbel, said Jozef Capuliak of the National Forestry Centre in Zvolen. The path is a circle, starting and ending near the Forestry Arboretum in Kysihýbel.

Igor Kuhn of the Regional Organisation of Tourism Banská Štiavnica welcomed the renovation as well. “When we say Banská Štiavnica, people often only view it as the town. But the surroundings are just as beautiful as the town itself,” he said, adding that they would be glad if not only urban and cultural tourists visited, but also those who like nature.

“This is a good way to get them into the forests and teach them something,” he said, as quoted by TASR.
