Stone in Historical Architecture in Slovakia
M. Bednarik, R. Holzer, R. Tornyai
pages 20 - 21, full text

Most of the historical monuments and buildings in Slovakia are built of natural, generous stone. The use of natural rock material in the area of the Western Carpathians is always bound on specifics of the regional - geological development of Slovakia. Different rock formation conditions and subsequent geological evolution caused considerable regional differentiation of rock masses. Major faulting of rocks during the folded-fault tectonics caused rather poor deposits on building and decorative stone in Slovakia. The rock masses of Western Carpathians provide stones which are of different natural and technical characteristics and different manner of utilization.
