     Title: Geopark Week at the Fossils
The European Geoparks Week, taking place at late May early June each year, is a European – wide festival of Geoparks. The Bükk National Park Directorate endorses this event.

Ipolytarnoc, as the main gateway to the Novohrad-Nograd Geopark joins to the celebration between May 26 and June 11 this year.


At the Miocene Park each day special events entartain the public, and  on May 26, there are signs, that a miniature volcano will be expected to erupt several times. For the safety of this major volcanic activity professor Szabolcs Harangi (ELTE) will give lectures to the visitors, like in the case of last year.

  • Report on the previous year's volcano day, although in Hungarian, but illustrated by many pictures, worth to see.
  • The whole spectrum of geopark events of the EGN week can be found on the homepage of the a Novohrad-Nógrád UNESCO Globális Geopark.
