There is a great interest with the operation of our Geoparks, hereby we would like to briefly introduce how it works and who are directing the Novohrad - Nograd Geopark.
The Novohrad-Nógrád Geopark is the firt geopark of Hungary and Slovakia which is also from the beginning the world's first transboundary Geopark as well.
The Novohrad-Nógrád Geopark is gradually building up and joining the unique Palots land historic traditions, landscapes and community of 64 hungarian and 28 slovakian settlements.
The area was admitted as official member of Global Geoparks Network (GGN) in spring 2010, with assistance of European Geoparks Network (EGN), which is under the auspices of UNESCO.
The organization in charge of the geopark management preserves and presents geological, landscape, natural, ecological, archaeological, historical and cultural heritage and integrates all these to form geo-touristic offers, thereby developing the local economy.
