Natural travertine lake - crater with thermal water in Vyšné Ružbachy - is of European importance. You can find it on the outskirts of Ružbachy spa area, which is also dominated by the beautiful mountains of Spišská Magura.

Travertine Lake is the largest of its kind in Slovakia. It has diameter of 20 meters and is 3 meters deep. With its uniqueness, it attracts all visitors and passers-by.

Since 1967, the Crater in Vyšné Ružbachy has been classified as a protected natural form of Slovakia. The water in the Crater is crystal-clear with temperature of about 23 ° C. Swimming in it is forbidden, but many visitors do not follow this rule.

The crater is adorned with a white travertine wall, which comes from the settling of calcium deposits, of which the thermal water in the Crater is rich. The surroundings of the lake are nicely arranged in park form.

Right next to the lake is a restaurant with parking lot, so if you go there by car, you have a place to park and refresh yourself.

„Veľmi zaujímavé miesto , krásne prírodné jazierko z ktorého vyteká veľa vody , ktorá ide odvedená kanálom a pár metrov nižšie tvorí malý pekný vodopád“
