Foresters built an educative path between the village of Šumiac and Kráľova hoľa in the Horehronie region.

The path includes informative desks based on the forest, coniferous trees, different types of mushrooms and mammals, the SITA newswire reported. They also teach about the life of bees and curative herbs that can be found in the forest.

Tourists can learn more about the spring of Hron river or Chmarošský viaduct near Telgárt village.

Foresters also built relaxation zones – wooden shelters with tables and benches.
