The village Herlany is placed on the outskirts of Slanské vrchy - a mountain range. It is approximately 28 km from Kosice. It’s been well known for its mineral springs since the 17th Century . This led to the establishment of a local spa. Demand for mineral spring water outstripped supply in 1870 resulting in a bore which created a one of a kind geyser in Herlany. The significance of the village as a health resort faded after 1945, but the world curiosity – a natural cold geyser (though its gradually losing its intensity ) has kept it unique for almost 130 years. Basic parameters of the Geyser of Herlany:
- depth 404 m

The geyser was proclaimed a national nature preserve.
