The flooded quarry in Beňatina in eastern Slovakia gained its popularity thanks to its turquoise water, which resembles the Croatian Plitvice Lakes.

There has been some tourist infrastructure built there over the past years – a walk around the lake, lookout point and photo-points, marked hiking and cycling routes.

But there is a new attraction in Beňatina now – a zipline. Thanks to it, it is possible to literally “fly” above the turquoise surface of the lake.

The steel rope is 180-metre-long and it is accessible for adults and children who are at least ten years of age and weigh 40 to 120 kilograms. For smaller children there is a “mini zipline” with a length of 30 metres.

“Even though the ride itself does not take long, the scenery, which a visitor will fly over, will definitely be written deeply in memories,” said director of Košice Region Tourism Lenka Vargová Jurková, adding that there is no similar zipline in Slovakia. The ride takes some 30 seconds.
