Dead and live travertine


Outside the present day course of the Krka River, travertine that is about 125,000 years old, called “dead” travertine has been found in the area of the former water course near Knin that was active during geological development.

This travertine was formed during the climatically warm Ris/Würm interglacial period. The active travertine waterfalls of the Krka River, i.e. the parts of the barriers that are found within the present day watercourse, are biodynamic creations that are continually growing through new calcification, and are thus called “live” travertine.
