The formation of unique geothermal springs in Turkey was facilitated by centuries-old events that took place in the distant past in this territory. Hundreds of millennia ago, a powerful earthquake caused a chain of geological movements in the earth's crust. Due to this, open sources of minerals, in particular calcium, began to form in the faults. Underground waters, rich in calcium, began to break out forming unusual travertines - picturesque cascades of snow-white color. In fact, they were created over thousands of years by nature itself and consist of a huge number of layers of calcium deposits.
