The sightseeing tour also includes an environmentally-friendly bus drive (on the harder part of paths) and a boat drive accross the lake. The boat runs across Kozjak Lake, which is the largest one, one way and it takes 20 minutes, and a little shuttle bus called the Panoramic Train runs every 20 minutes or so. Besides, there are a lot of coffee bars and restaurants, where you can take a break and enjoy pleasant nature all around you, far away from city crowds...
