Meliata - The Meliata profile natural monument

The significant paleontological and geological location was created artificially during the quarrying process. Geological layers on the river Muráň’s left bank present the various limestone layers corresponding to different stages of development of the earth’s crust. Although several types of fossils can be found here, their collection is strictly prohibited because the places happens to be a protected area of 15 hectares with level 4 protection.
Meliatikum in the Western Carpathians is also named after the village of Meliata and the Meliata profile.
