A world famous nature conservation area of more than 20 billion year-old fossils. A volcanic catastrophe destroyed the paleohabitat and preserved its treasures at the same time by burrying them. It is the main gateway to the world’s first crossborder geopark, the Novohrad-Nógrád Geopark. Seaside sand interspersed with shark’s teeth, huge, petrified trees from a subtropical jungle, leaf impressions of exotic plants, footprints of monsters, remains caked together in the hot flow of volcanic tuff – and all these are in situ, on display along a geological study path. The site has huge potentials for further discoveries, only a shred of the area has been excavated so far. Much of our past is still buried unexplored underneath!
