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 endorsed this event.

At the Miocene Park each day special events entartained the public, and on May 26, a miniature volcano erupted several times. For the safety of this major volcanic activity professor Szabolcs Harangi (ELTE) gave 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.
