The village Herlany is placed in the skirts of Slanské vrchy - a mountain range. It is approximately 28 km far from Kosice. It was well known already in the 17th Century for its mineral springs. This fact was a cause of establishment of the local spa. The mineral springs were not sufficient for the demand for mineral waters in the year 1870. Because of that was begun to make a bore which resulted in creation of a world unique - geyser of Herlany. The significance of the village as a health resort faded after the year 1945, but the world curiosity - natural cold geyser (though it has lost its intensity gradually) keeps its unique for almost 130 years.
