CATARACT OF BASALT - KAMENNY VODOPAD
Slovakia

CATARACT OF BASALT

On the northern side of the castle Somoska you find the famous cataract of basalt, as the hot basalt got petrified in the form of arched columns. This kind of rare geological formation only exists on four places of the world. The narrow pentagonal and hexagonal columns were formed as the basalt got cool, and at certain points their height is not less than 9 m. A part of these rock formations were used for the construction of the castle, as well.

KAMENNY VODOPAD

Pod hradom Somoska, na jeho severnej strane sa nachadza svetoznamy cadicovy vylev. Vo vyske asi 500 m n.m. su cadicove stlpce, dlhe az 16 m, ohnute do obluku, usporiadane ako organove pistaly. Z obce Siatorska Bukovinka vedie sem geologicky naucny chodnik ktoreho stanovistom je aj cadicovy vylev.
