The Bükk National Park Directorate and the Forest Plays Music Foundation will organise a special event at Ipolytarnoc on the 30th of June, this year.
The European Geoparks Week, taking place at late May early June each year, is a European – wide festival of Geoparks aimed at raising public awareness of geoconservation and promotion of the geological heritage as well as events aimed at informing the wide public about geotouristic and educational activities in geoparks.
New beardog footprints have been discovered along the geological path. The exposed area has become uncovered again after the winter protection and  it is exhibited  along the left side of the study trail.
In the meantime excavation started under the walkway of the Conservation Hall, where uncovering of the paleosoil surface ended in early 1980.

Welcome!

Dear Visitor,

You are reading the introductory page of Ipolytarnóc Fossils. Our renowned nature conservation area has been stewarding its unparallelled relics, fossils since the  area got protection status in 1944.  It is managed by the Bükk National Park Directorate. A volcanic catastrophe destroyed the paleohabitat and preserved its treasures at the same time by burrying them. It is the main gateway to the world's first crossborder geopark, the Novohrad-Nógrád Geopark. It is only 150 kms north-east of Budapest, close to the Slovakian border.
Seaside sand interspersed with shark's teeth, huge, petrified trees from a subtropical jungle, leaf impressions of exotic plants, footprints of monsters, remains caked together in the hot flow of volcanic tuff – and all these are in situ, on display along a geological study path. The site has huge potentials for further discoveries, only a shred of the area has been excavated so far. Much of our past is still buried unexplored underneath!

Come and discover the treasures of the area! Go on browsing. Now on the net, but later do not hesitate to visit us!
