The unique natural phenomenon Kamenné More (Stony sea) can be found at the base of Kamenná hill, above Vyhne village. This special area is composed of an infinite amount of stones and thanks to its large size, it is the biggest and most significant place of its kind in Slovakia.

It is also one of the oldest protected areas in Slovakia. Kamenné More in Vyhne arose by erosion processes and an earthquake that caused large stones to collapse thousands of years ago.

Stony sea is noteworthy not only because of its geological importance but also its zoological significance as several precious animals live here, especially reptiles.
