Lots of photo opportunities. It’s a small walk around the hole with a longer stop in the opposite side from the direction where you arrive. It took us 2 hours in total. There is another quarry next to it called Mexico, smaller and not filler...More

This was my first visit of velka amerika and I was horribly dissapointed. Although the scenery is so amazing, the most negative thing is the rubbish - it is everywhere (kids diapers, pizza box, bottles and so on)!!!!!
