A travertine lake located in a crater in an area of the fourth highest degree of protection is a popular place to bath.

“For a long time, not only locals are coming here to bath, but also people from the surrounding area or even Czechs, Poles, Austrians and Germans,” said Rudolf Baleja, the mayor of Stankovany, for the TASR newswire.

The bottom of the lake is covered with wooden boards and they are getting destroyed due to being submerged in water. Volunteer firemen first drained the water, then made necessary changes mainly to the wooden floor and cleaned the lake.

The lake is locally called Zlá voda (Bad Water). A Stankovany local says that it’s not very clear why.

“People feel tingling on their skin while bathing. In the past, they didn’t know that it is healing, they thought the opposite,” she explained.
