Menčiai Limestone Quarry

Valles Marineris in Lithuania? The impossible will become a reality if you visit this corner of northern Lithuania that the locals have only recently discovered themselves. The limestone beds that formed in the district of Akmenė 300 million years ago and have been excavated for years have turned into a unique canyon landscape that is totally uncharacteristic of Lithuania. Even more interesting is that dinosaur remains have been found in these Jurassic rock formations!
