Baltow and its history

Bałtów 150 million years ago A warm sea, inhabited by corals, brachiopods, bivalves, snails, sea urchins and ammonites, existed at the site of Bałtów during the Jurassic. Fossils discovered in Wólka Bałtowska enable us to suppose that nearby there was a land similar to the present-day coast of Florida, with dinosaurs wandering across white carbonate beaches, leaving their footprints.The white rocks surrounding Bałtów are a remnant of this sea. Numerous fossils, mainly stenothermal corals, can be found there.
