It is the first of the national parks in Hungary which was mainly established with the aim of preserving the geological natural values, the surface formations and the caves.
Here you can find the Baradla-Domica cave system, which is the most special in the moderate zone with its activity, length and the richness in dripstones. The length of all its surveyed sections is 25 km, of which Cave Domica in Slovakia is 5,6 km long.
