230 million years ago, Hotavlje was covered by sea, full of vibrant life. Different organism, such as corals, sea sponges, urchins and snails slowly created massive limestone with their hard-skeleton parts. It was later covered with various rocks and could well remain hidden deep under the surface. But tectonic forces, the masters of earth’s crust transformation, wanted it to rise to its present location. Hotavlje marble sings a unique song praising its beauty, one which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
