Description

One of interesting tourist attractions in Krupina are Turkish wells. They are located in a locality called Štrampľoch (stone quarry) by locals. Turkish wells are actually rock shelters carved in a former quarry. Their origin and purpose is still a mystery.

It is assumed that local poverty used Tukisch wells as a dwelling, but it is not excluded that they could also be used as a shelter at the time of the Turkish raids. Last but not least, it cannot be ruled out that these premises could once have served as cellars, which were later flooded with water.

Another interesting feature of the quarry is the stone room carved into the rock formation. Next to the stone room entrance, there is a small moat in which the spring was discovered. The surrounding area is planted with greenery, benches and a table, as well as an information board. Turkish wells are easily accessible. You can get there by a comfortable walk directly from the city center along the marked hiking trail.
