Interreg Centralparks project: Carpathian Quiz winners

From 1st of June to 19th of July, Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE project Centralparks ran an educational Quiz on the Carpathian region. In the last two weeks, the results were finalised and winners – announced.

What was the quiz about?

The Centralparks Quiz included 17 questions. The first half of the questions concerned mainly geographical and biological aspects of the region. The second part of the Quiz, however, featured the Centralparks project itself. This, in turn, was done to facilitate knowledge on both tasks and expected outcomes, performed in this project.
