Description of the route: Moderately demanding, in places very demanding half day tour with a dramatic stretch next to the cave Brložná where the short ascent is secured by chains. It coincides with the instructive path of Fraňo Madva and apart from several exceptions it is well marked. It connects the places where the native of Skalica, priest and folk healer Fraňo Madva lived and worked. The route offers spots with fine views.
