Description: Aggtelek National Park can be found in the area of the Gömör-Torna Karst, with one of the richest natural and cultural values in Hungary. This national park is the first one to be dedicated to the protection of abiotic values, superficial land formations and caves.
In the area of the historical Gömör-Torna Karst more than 1000 different caves can be found and all of them were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1995. The most famous is Baradla, which is the biggest and most beautiful cave system in Hungary. The other caves, eg. Vass Imre Cave in Jósvafő, Rákóczi Cave near Bódvarákó are open for visiting whole year long.
The Aggtelek Karst has rich flora and fauna and the natural surroundings provide unique experiences for visitors.
