The tourist informational system is not missing and is also there together with places for relax all around paths. For summer relax the area offers many opportunities for swimming in local flooded sand-pits.
The flatlands surrounding the two rivers are ideal for a great variety of relaxing activities, such as running, in-line skating, cycling, horseback riding, swimming in nature, angling, or golf. These activities are supported by development of info-centres, rental services (esp. bike rentals), public sports grounds and facilities for relaxation. The founders of the Museum of Gingerbread and the "Gingerbread County” cooperate on presentation of the region as the region of gingerbread. The Museum offers a variety of complete products focused especially on families with children. Development of tourism in the region, and especially broadening the variety and quality improvement of offered products, goes hand in hand with restructuring of agriculture, protection of living environment, recycling, eco-education, re-creation of original village centres as suburbs are becoming built-up, and revival of traditional values and ways of living.
