Springhead „Suva banja“

(Google translate) Suva spas or hot thermal mineral Prince Tomislav is a karst spring which occurs at the intersection of the Nišava and the Student fault, 300 m southeast of the “Main hot” Niska Banja. The water in this cave spa originally appeared only occasionally, after the melting of snow and heavy spring rains, as tepid source, the angles (274), which is about 30 m higher than the “Main hot” Niska Banja. Therefore the cave spa baths Suva, described as an example of the apparent drying up of springs in karst terrains (hence encourages its title). This phenomenon is explained by the bifurcation underground stream that “food source”, the essential process of evolution of morphological and hydrological karst terrain. Because of this mechanism of hydrothermal earlier this strong cave baths were pseudoperiodski source, because it is during the low state of the entire underground stream flowing away exuded channel and the lower permanent sources.

Training works on the hot Suva spa opened in 1931 was her entrance to the cave and down the overflow level, ie siphon elbow for about 70 meters below the level of a spring, or more than 40 m below the bed of the river Nisava. Thus, occasional source of Suva Spa has become a constant source of water with a temperature a few degrees lower than the temperature of boiling General of Niska Banja. Water is the hot karakeriše the lower level of radioactivity, a mineral composition similar to the other springs in Niska Banja. In 1931 was made on building “Cold baths” (pool 5) in which for the treatment of patients with unstable nervous system, for which charging is applied water Dry spas.

After World War II origins Suva Spa was again dried up, but after the project Professor Pećinara (1956) carried out another lower estuary Suva Spa 8.5 m, at a lower level (265.70), thereby resulting change in karst main hydraulic system Suva springs spa. In the newly developed hydrological regime springs Suva bath, minimal contact of water in the dry period is 25 liters per second and a water temperature of about 39 ° C, and maximum contact in an rainy period and after thawing of snow of about 500 l / sec with a water temperature around 11 ° C .
