PREPŠTSKÁ JASKYŇA - national natural monument

Prepoštská jaskyňa lies on the edge of a huge travertine rock , which belongs to the largest travertine formation in Slovakia . This travertine poke was formed over a long period of settling of calcium , which contained mineral water from the local thermal springs . It was thanks to these waters that the erosion of a cave , which is 11 meters long , is decorated with peasant stalagmites . Above the entrance, a massive travertine overhang forms, creating natural protection against unfavorable weather.

The Prepoštská cave itself is the property of the Slovak state . It is so rare that the Ministry of the Environment has declared it a national natural monument and the surrounding area is declared a protected area of ​​the national natural monument .

Surroundings of the Prepoštská Cave (Museum Complex) are also a unique natural area , which despite its location (located in the very center of Bojníc) has preserved the nature of the wild nature , the untouched hands of the man.
