Test your Carpathian knowledge and win the prize!

Do you have an idea how large are the Carpathians or in which countries lie the Carpathians? If you already know the answers to these questions or if you would simply like to find out more about this magnificent region – join the first ever Carpathian Quiz! This Quiz is a part of our three-year Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE project Centralparks, which brings together eight partners from 7 European countries. 

The Centralparks project

The Carpathian region consists of some of the most valuable ecosystems in Central Europe. Within these ecosystems, you can spot a large amount of endemic plant species that cannot be effectively grown or preserved in any other parts in the world. Moreover, the area is also popular for its habitat connectivity, where the wildlife corridors help to ensure certain migration pats for such Carpathian inhabitants as brown bears, wolves, lynxes, and even the free-roaming European bisons.

Noting on the above, the Centralparks project therefore aims to preserve at its best the various protected areas in the region. To do this, the project improves the integrated environmental management capacities of the Carpathian protected areas. Not only does it promote valuable knowledge and expertise among the protected area managers in the region, but it also aims to educate local communities on the importance of sustainable conservation within the Carpathians.
