This is a landscape resource system with tourism value that is based on groundwater. Groundwater is the water stored in the rocks of the Earth’s crust in various forms. Groundwater takes part in the water cycle under the effects of solar radiation, gravity, geothermal energy and tectonics, and in this cycle, the water can form many spectacular landforms, such as various types of springs, subterranean streams inside karst caves, mud volcanoes and calcareous tufa landscapes.
