Our Geoheritage


The first geologic map of the geopark region, created by Jan Brunn (1904-2003) and published in 1956.

Jan Brunn (1904-2003) was the first geologist to map the Pindos-Vourinos region, in 1938-9.  Although plate tectonic theory had not yet been proposed as an explanation for geologic phenomena, Brunn recognized the importance of what he observed in this area and the similarity of the formations to those of the ocean floor.  

Geopark Grevena-Kozani owes much of its geoheritage to Jan Brunn.  Here is a recording Jan made, in which he explains the significance of rocks found near the Zavordas Monastery.
