** The structure of the terrain within the national park is under a certain slope and there are both uphills and downhills. The whole section of the tour in one direction is about 8 km, but anyone can master it. The park is visited mostly on foot, so be sure to have shoes that are comfortable and at the same time firm for your feet (we do not recommend thin canvas sneakers, flip flops, sandals, beach shoes). Part of the section can be crossed by electric train and thus shorten the walk. Be sure to bring a raincoat or umbrella in case of bad weather.
