Turecká - Krížna chairlift
The Turecká – Krížna chairlift was put into operation on November 17, 1971. It is 2,060 meters long with a height difference of 730 meters.
During the operation, more lifts were added: a children’s two-hundred-meter lift, and two curved lifts, lower and upper, each of which was 4,130 meters long. This technically equipped ski center served to the satisfaction of skiing and hiking enthusiasts, with a visit of around 1,200 passengers per day. An insensitive privatization ended the operation in the spring of 1993. On November 4, 2005, the upper station burned down, and thus one of the last objects that reminded the existence of the chairlift disappeared.
In the valley of Rakytovo near Dolný Harmanec, there is a unique cultural monument for rafting straight wood – a log flume.
The flume was probably built in the 19th century and was declared a national cultural monument in 2000. The log flume, with a total length of 2,450 meters, was significantly damaged over many years and remained partially disabled. Thanks to the initiative of the Banská Bystrica city, the intention to repair the water channel Rakytovo was created as part of the project “Development of the tourist infrastructure of the city of Banská Bystrica. The entire structure of the water trough is made of wood – spruce and fir, without the use of other materials, such as iron or plastics.
