      That's a useful site, Ron (clever that you got the URL although they
      use frames). The springs are registered under the names of the
      villages on whose territory they are, which is not necessarily the
      same as the name under which they are known. The springs at Siva
      brada are in the "Levoca" section, under "Baldovce SNV - 4" through
      "Baldovce SNV - 9." The one most people stop by is SNV-4 called Sv.
      Ondrej (St. Andrew).

      Unlike in the US, all of Slovakia's territory is divided among
      villages, boroughs, and towns (which is the case in the rest of
      Central Europe, too). The counties have no territory under their
      control. Land features that belong to a village can be quite far from
      it if its territory is large. Some villages own mountains, etc.
