     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.

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


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.
  • The whole spectrum of geopark events of the EGN week can be found on the homepage of the a Novohrad-Nógrád UNESCO Global Geopark.
