Since this week's weather forecast does not look good, we offer you the chance to join an easy local hike. A group of foreigners are preparing to go on a nice and relatively flat hike on Saturday, taking in some of the hidden sights of Medené Hámre that most of you haven't seen before.

The route includes a waterfall, a hidden cave and hidden mine entrance, followed by a forested trail back to Biely Kríž and finishing in Rača.
