Hunting and archery on the shores of the lake that disappeared
The shepherd boy Krištof is sympathetically standing on the shore of a former lake when young Lintver, the miserable dragon, remembers the rule of its father. They are both reminded of the times of brave fishermen, when hunting was still performed with a bow and arrow, by Ribča peč. Today, you can still learn the skills or listen to the gentle music of the landlord’s zither.
On the Gradišnik farm
Even today, the Gradišnik farm continues to reflect an era forgotten by most while keeping track with the present. It is the first farm built in the Matkov kot valley, as well as the only farm located away from the main road leading through the area. Its sunny location is especially spectacular amidst the alpine meadows and the breathtaking vista of Mt. Mrzla gora as well as other nearby peaks. The peaceful atmosphere is sometimes supplemented with the sweet sounds of the zither. The farm also rents out bows as well as giving archery lessons, while the most adventurous can participate in the 3-kilometre 3-D archery adventure deep in the forest.
