The high altitude health resort—situated at the northernmost part of the Gömör County, in about two hours walking distance from the town of Dobšiná—belted by ozone-producing pine forests, can be placed within the climate and health resorts and spas of the Tatra mountains. The holiday resort located on a relatively wind-less and dust-less place, for its thinner air of higher humidity but less saturated by water-vapour, and for its cooler temperature, was not very popular among the locals, but in national–and even international—dimensions it was a popular and highly demanded destination for leisure, recreation and relaxation.
