Kráter
- is an unique travertine lake, 20 m in diameter and 3 m deep, surrounded  by a travertine wall with thermal water. The craters of Ružbachy have nothing to do with volcanoes or volcanic eruptions. They are results of collapsed travertine monticules which precipitated around mineral springs rich in calcium. Lake Kráter is the most preserved travertine formation of its kind in central Europe and at the same time a trade-marked area.
