Approximately 3 kilometers southeast of the district town of Poprad, in the Podtatra basin, there is the village of Gánovce, which is famous for its archaeological site. It brings the visitor closer to the findings of various petrified leaf impressions and remains of bones of prehistoric animals, which were found during the mining of travertine in the local quarry, at the Hrádok location in the second half of the 20th century. The most important find, however, was a cast of the brain of the prehistoric man Homo neanderthalensis, which made the area famous. In 1958, an international commission in Prague and in Gánovce confirmed that the site of Gánovce belongs to the world's sites of Neanderthal man, who lived in this area 105,000 years ago. Among other things, visitors can admire several objects from the Stone Age and the Bronze Age with the help of information boards. It is also considered a site of Ottoman culture.
