THE QUARRY AND CAVE THEATRE CAN NOT BE VISITED DURING THE WINTER.
PLANNED OPENING DATE: APRIL 2019.
THE THEME PARK
The Theme Park introduces natural, petrological and paleontological values of the region.
The project launched in 2013 enabled an extensive discovery of the natural environment of the quarry. Visitors can look around not only on the surface area but also in the thematic park established in the inside space of the cave, assisted all the way along by different signboards.
The indoor part of the quarry (cave) is a multifunctional cave like area formed both by nature and humans. This hides both an unusual exhibition area and a playing ground.
