In the village of Banský Studenec there are two lakes lying next to each other - the so-called Kolpašské. These are artificial tanks - tajchy - which were built for the needs of mining. They are currently used for fishing (especially the smaller ones), but also for summer recreation (especially the larger ones). Although the lakes are also called Studenské (after the village of Banský Studenec), they belong to the warmest secrets of Banská Štiavnica. The water in them is controlled, of sufficient quality for bathing. There are changing cabins on the shores of Lake Kolpaš. However, facilities providing services to holidaymakers are not here. The location will be appreciated especially by visitors looking for quiet, little visited natural swimming pools.
Vinianske Lake is located in a beautiful forest environment 11 km from Michalovce. Thanks to the relatively small area and the protection of the surrounding forests against the wind, it can boast extremely warm water, and therefore it is undeniably a great attraction for tourists and an ideal place to relax by the water. It is also known abroad and many tourists from Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Germany and the Netherlands come for its beauties. Due to its excellent climatic conditions and truly beautiful nature, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Slovakia.
The location of the Medvedia hora resort is located in the most valuable landscape area, at the foot of an elevated promontory - a peninsula of volcanic origin.

In the western part of Medvedej hora there is a recreational area with an area of 3 ha with a modified pebble beach, water bike rental, car camp ATC Anima and there is also a parking lot for about 250 cars and Pension Anima. Above the road is the Europenzión restaurant Salaš.
