Water plays a big role in Liptov being such a beautiful and diverse region. The center of the region is the Liptovská Mara dam, the second largest of its kind in Slovakia. Liptov is extremely rich in mineral and thermal springs. They also supply spas and thermal pools with their healing power. Another attraction of Liptov is the “growing stones” – travertines.
Springs in Liptov
Liptov is incredibly rich in mineral springs and springs in general. We have a strong geological predisposition here, precisely because we have the highest hills here.
The Tatras are a kind of roof over which rainwater falls, which does not contain any mineral substances. This water flows and passes through the mountains, and in certain places it is lost, when it penetrates to great depths. However, it then springs up from these depths and comes to the surface mineralized. This is how mineral springs, popularly known as wells, honeycombs or eggs, are created. You can read or listen to more about the springs in the Nepoznány Liptov project.

which lives its own world and at the same time is connected to life above the surface. You can read or listen to more about the caves in the Nepoznány Liptov project.
