In order to explore the culture of sport, the participants of the info tour all by themselves did a trolley descent of a 200-meter height difference in the canyon of the Matuzka River. This act of courage can be done in fact by anyone - any tourist aged 14-60 and weighing 45-130 kilos can afford this on condition that he or she has no heart problems. Which is, in fact, frequently done by tourist groups that arrive from the nearest health resorts + tourists arriving from the adjacent regions.
