It is the largest among the green tourist attractions of Bydgoszcz – an area with special natural, recreational and sports, as well as didactic values.

We pass by the Horse Recreation Center with stables with boxes for 50 horses, a coach house and covered riding schools. The hippodrome enables the organization of numerous competitions in sled driving and jumping. Horse riding shows, horse rallies, as well as the St. Hunting Race have become a tradition. Hubert – pursuit of the fox combined with a riding feast by the fire. The resort also organizes carriage rides, as well as sleigh rides in the winter.
