– MAI TÁJHÁZ
The Kottyán house, the former inn of the settlement, was once the largest house in the
village. The “U” floor plan building was built in the late 18 th century and was originally owned
by the Zichy family. The house and its yard were revived in the spring of 2015: gardening and
landscaping works began with the offering of the villagers, and the process continued with
the collection and reception of exhibits. Since then, it has operated as a traditional house of
the region, where permanent and temporary exhibitions are held. There is the Slovak room
of our Slovak community, with old Pávakör(=local cultural preservation society)memories
and furnishings. In the kitchen, there is an oven and a stove providing the place of our
gastronomic days. The cellar is open to the public. In the spring of 2020, embraced by the
250-year-old stone walls, aninteractive exhibition space, information point and community
hallwas built in the old outbuilding, called Bodzaház, based on the house-in-house design
principle. The building complex can be visited by purchasing a ticket.

NAGY-KŐBÁNYA (highly protected)
At the beginning of the 20 th century, rock mining took place in the village,on the site of Nagy- kőbánya and Kis-kőbánya. In the large quarry, which has now been abandoned, some of the rock layers contain rich fossil fauna, mainly ammonites, but a mineral called Jásdit* can also be found here. In the 20 th century, the stone mined in the Nagy-kőbánya was used in the construction of roads.The currently protected geological section belongs to the area of Bakony-Balaton Geopark,therefore our village joins the European Geoparks Week program series at the end of May every year.
*Geologist István Vitális, who also dealt with economic geology mapping, named the mineral found in the Eocene coal deposits of Jásd as JÁSDIT. Coal mining took place only for a short time in Jásd, at the foot of Varga-hegy
