Tourism in this area is characterized by individual agrotourism. You rent a room for dining with a peasant family. Many farmers have 2-3 horses to ride. There are also riding schools and smaller boarding houses. Prices are very low.

There are several places in Poland where you breed and breed horses. Until World War II, it was the Polish state that was responsible for having enough riding horses, specifically for use by the army. During the war, the stock of horses was drastically reduced.
