WELCOME TO THE ŽELEZNÉ HORY GEOPARK
WHAT IS A GEOPARK
The geopark is an area that includes the interesting localities from the perspective of geological sciences. These localities are developed in cooperation with local communities and governmental and private organizations in order to support the growth of regional infrastructure, number of visitors and level of education. Besides the geological localities, the geopark includes cultural, environmental, archeological and historic sights. Except for the specially protected areas, the human activities in the geopark are not affected and the sustainable development of the region is encouraged. The idea of geopark connects the promotion of geological heritage with regional development. Moreover, the geopark acquaints the visitors with geological processes and with the significance of natural resources and their utilization in economic and cultural history of the area.
