In the pure ecological park, there is steam coming out of the underground everywhere, and there is a lake that is especially pure as a mirror. You can also take a boat trip to the lake. Unfortunately, we did not take it in time. This park is privately contracted, so tickets are collected. There is a bus shuttle that can take you back to the exit, otherwise it will take a long time. Highly recommended, the most convenient self-driving, you can play for a while. There are very few people in the park, so you can take pictures at will.
