ONGOING ACTIVITIES

Explanatory and directional panels in geoparks

Directional and explanatory navigation is extremely useful in geoparks and nature reserves. As part of this activity, we are interested in finding out what is the current state of these panels. Please complete the sections of the participation form and upload images of the panels you meet.

Thank you for your contribution to the Citizen Science Geoparks platform!

The Buzăului UNESCO Geopark is located in the south-east of Romania, in the bend of the Eastern Carpathians and covers an area of 1036 km2. The geopark includes many geological and paleontological sites of great scientific value, including unique geological phenomena: amber deposits, diapirs and salt caves, mud volcanoes, numerous mineral springs and natural gas emissions that keep a permanent flame burning, erratic blocks of Breccia salt, and a cultural heritage that includes, among many others, the cave settlements from Aluniș-Bozioru. In addition to the 3 existing museums (the Vasile Voiculescu Memorial House in Pârscov, the Colți Amber Museum and the Bisoceană Zestrea House), the Geopark team has also set up the following tourist spots: the Museum of Shapes in Bozioru, 7 story-telling places in Lopătari, Time of Man from Mânzălești, Aluniș Art Center, Porta Geoparcului Geogate – visitor center in the town of Sătuc.
