Hubert Kessler Memorial House

Hubert Kessler Memorial House

The Hubert Kessler Memorial House is located in Jósvafő beside the Baradla Cave entrance and the Tengerszem Hotel. Dr. Hubert Kessler  (1907 – 1994) was the most famous Hungarian karst and cave researcher, and perhaps the most successful.


Kessler wrote his Ph.D. geology-geography-paleontology dissertation, "The Hydrology of the Aggtelek Cave System," at Budapest Technical University with which he earned a general engineering diploma. He was the director of the Baradla Cave from 1935-1945, and later, the director of the Speleological Institute where he focused his efforts on cave protection. A monograph about Hubert Kessler’s life and work may be purchased at the gift shop.

Aggtelek National Park is the number one spot for large carnivores in Hungary. The proximity of the Carpathians, and ecological corridors allowing for unhindered passage into the country has meant the return of a number of otherwise thought to be extinct species.

Bike Rental article

There are several marked and designated bike trails in and around Aggtelek National Park. Bike rentals are available from the Park at the Salamander House in Szögliget.


Csulyák István article

(1942.08.16 - 2020.03.16.)

Néhány napja hagyott itt minket végleg Csulyák István, az ANP első gazdasági igazgatója, aki 1985-1996 látta el ezt a feladatot.
A mai kollégák közül keveseknek még emlék, a többeknek pedig az ANP történelmének része.
Mi az ANP első igazgatójának, Buzetzky Győzőnek szavaival köszönünk el tőle.
