Directions to Travertine Formation in Be?e?ová

The village of Bešeňová is one of the few precious places with occurrence of 'freshwater' limestone, so-called travertine.

These precious calcite forms arised thanks to mineral contents of water, its temperature and, of course, the surface and structure of the landscape. We recommend you to visit this 'forsaken' pit situated to the north of the village.

'The Travertine Field' formed thanks to favourable natural conditions in the village of Bešeňová.

In fact, travertine is soft limestone rock and its formation is affected by plenty of factors – water temperature, chemical contents of water, presence of organisms and CO2 in water, geological background, etc.

The natural monument Bešeňová Travertines spreads to an area of 3.18 ha (7.85 acres). The cascades of this exquisite limestone formation are shiny thanks to mineral water, which continuously streams down. This water does not contain only calcium carbonate but also magnesium, sulphur and iron. That is why the travertine formation in Bešeňová is extraordinarily colourful.

What is more, this travertine was used for producing of golden yellow boards, which even decorate the building of the Comenius University in Bratislava, or even the Palace of Nations in Geneva!

Although the Travertine Formation in Bešeňová not being the most monumental nor the biggest travertine formation in the world, it is one of the most interesting ones thanks to its manifold structure.
