In the southeastern part of the Licina Highlands, there is a natural monument of Muráň Breakthrough. It has been a protected area since 1980 and the subject of the protectionis the flow of the Muráň River, which is cut into limestone. The surroundings of the river are richly represented by forest stands with rare fauna and flora.

In this locality, the Muráň River is surrounded by a narrow canyon valley in lenght of 3.5 km and a depth of up to 100 m. There is a 4th degree of territorial protection applying here, and tourists should behave in this area accordingly.

The breakthrough of Muráň includes an educational trail that starts in the village of Bretka under the old church. The trail then leads through the magical natural scenery to Peško Boulder, in the middle of which is the cave of the same name. The educational trail is lined with 6 information panels in Slovak, English and Hungarian.

The breakthrough continues through the modified route to the valley. Visible traces of the trough will lead you to the water mill. Subsequently, only a slight climb to the slope awaits you and after it, the path falls and penetrates into a distinctive hole in the rock with the Hutnianska Cave.

The Muráň Educational Trail ends at the Old Hut, which once was a nail factory. Even today, it is possible to observe its ruins with the naked eye. The Muráň Breakthrough is one of the undemanding routes where you walk at a quiet pace and discover not only nature but also the history of the region.
