The pathway "Little two" is a combined path suitable for one-and two-day tourist trips. On its way the most interesting objects are Petrlaška caves, lakes Smilovska, Native library and museum, a traditional village architecture - timbered buildings (ethno house "Bekov," for example) as well as the village records and crosses "meals". The path is marked with labels bridle way (green circle with a white dot in the middle) and green signposts with the horse and rider and number 2. Navigating is easy, using the map alone. In 2006 were marked more tens of kilometres bridle ways, biking and hiking trails, and paths for field vehicles are traced and drawn in maps. Organisation "Natura Balkanika" in 2010 made a new, detailed map of the area, tourist guide and a card with GPS coordinates, allowing the movement of tourists in the field more facilitated under conditions of lack of road tourist signs. It was made 20 tourist maps of most famous places. In the new map 2 tourist paths are traced: "Milky Way", which talks about the traditional way of production of dairy products from old meadows and pastures of the mountain Stara planina, to workshops for cheese and yoghurt museum in Trn municipality and "Treasure Hunt", which allows you to experience the cultural heritage of the area, traditional crafts, treasure of the spiritual heritage, music and visual arts, starting at Stara planina waterfalls, canyons and cliffs, through caves, monasteries and talented local artists - musicians, painters and so on.
In the region Zabrdje, which is the largest karst field in Serbia, there are numerous caves, bays and depressions, which make the region attractive for educational tourism. The most important is a group of caves of unique system that was built by the underground river Odorovacka River. Visit of the cave and rest next to her with the traditional "white breakfast" is the first longer stay on this path. Continuing the path, there are the farms Stojadinov and Vasov, dealing with the breeding of indigenous breeds of domestic animals - pigs mangulica, pramenka sheep, balkan goats and horses of the race nonius. On the farm within the tours traditional lunch and dinner are organized with high-quality sour milk, white goat, sheep and cow cheeses, homemade meals like stuffed papper (plnene šušpe), stuffed vine leaves, pork, lamb or goat from the oven, pies, homemade brandy from wild plums and so on.
