Part of the Dinosaurs Geopark - the country of Hațeg, the griffon, dragons and dinosaurs exhibition is just one of the points of interest in this geopark included in the UNESCO heritage.
The concept uses the legends of the griffon, the myth of the dragons and the fascination for dinosaurs. The main hero is the bondoc dragon, a species of Transylvanian dinosaur, with the story of his discovery and reformation. The reconstruction is carried out by Brian Cooley, a recognized international expert.
