Slovakia is a country rich in natural unique phenomena. One of them are travertines in Dudince. They represent a protected natural formation located in a park in the area of Dudince spa. They were formed by precipitation of water around the mineral springs.

The best known and most appealing feature are the so-called Roman Baths (Močidlá) near the local amphitheater, which refer to the presence of the Romans in the territory of today's Slovakia.

They consist of 32 stone pools carved into travertine. On the travertine walls of these pools, you can see fossilized grass, branches and leaves of various trees.

The Educational Trail Travertines of Dudince will accompany you through the system of travertine formations. In addition to the Roman Baths, it has 6 more stops at each travertine formation:

  • Travertine terrace - the youngest formation beautifying the river bank of Štiavnica
  • Spa Spring - the largest travertine hill reaching to the height of almost 10 meters
  • Tatar spring - it is said that it is a silent witness to the atrocities committed by the Tatars
  • Hostečný Spring - was used to treat reuma
  • Sleeping Beauty - roses once grew in its surroundings
  • Eye Spring - People believed it had miraculous healing power

In the places where the Roman Baths are, the mineral springs once really sprung up. However, today they are all extinct, but their beauty is not taken away, on the contrary, they look even more engaging.
