The Visitor Center of the Karawanken UNESCO Global Geopark on the Petzen Mountain
`Geo.Dom´ - a brilliant nature game!
Special exhibition: "The Petrified Forest of Lesvos UNESCO Global Geopark - Understanding Climate Change".
What is a Greek forest doing in Carinthia and can you travel back in time on the Petzen? Sure! 20 million years in the blink of an eye. We see trunks, branches, roots, leaves and seeds - buried in volcanic ash back then, preserved until today. One of the largest petrified forests in the world. A Pompeii of plants: The Petrified Forest of Lesvos shows us how we can learn for our own future from the processes that have repeatedly changed our planet over millions of years. The Lesvos UNESCO Global Geopark is visiting the new Geo.Dom on the Petzen with the special exhibition "Understanding Climate Change".
The Geopark Visitor Center Geo.Dom was supported by the European Regional Development Fund within the framework of the cooperation program Interreg V-A Slovenia-Austria.
