In Tata, Hungary, an open-air geological museum can be explored in a former quarry. There are exposed Mesozoic sedimentary rocks and the cleaned rock surfaces of Kálvária Hill which can be easily accessed and studied. The protected site is used for recreation, teaching and public outreach.
“Scientific study of the Mesozoic formations began in the 1850s with the work of Austrian and Hungarian geologists and led to the identification of the Upper Triassic Dachstein Limestone, Lower Jurassic red ammonitic limestone and Lower Cretaceous crinoidal limestone.”
