  • Description

    Wietrznia – Zbigniew Rubinowski reserve is the final height in the Kadzielnia Range and is located in the eastern part of Kielce, between the Wojska Polskiego, Daleszycka and Księcia Józefa Poniatowskiego streets.This is the largest of the Kielce geological reserves, whose shape was influenced by mining and takes the form of a canyon surrounded by rocky faces. It consists of the adjoined excavations of Wietrznia, Międzygórz and Międzygórz Wschodni, whose total length is ca. 800 metres.Recorded in the ca. 100 metre long vertical profile is the history of the sea’s development from the end of the middle Devonian through almost the whole late Devonian period, i.e. 365-386 years ago. It is also one of the largest such exposures in Poland. The thick sediment banks that are found here were formed in a warm sea in the vicinity of a shallow shelf, a little deeper than the one at Kadzielnia, which bordered on a reef at that period.

    Due to the high educational value of the site, Wietrznia was chosen for the location of the Geoeducation Centre. The facility is run by Geopark Kielce, will host permanent and temporary exhibitions covering various geological subjects and will additionally serve as a perfect spot for theme workshops, lectures, presentations and scientific meetings. The offer includes Eearth Gallery Capsule “Journey to the center of the Earth” and paleontological exhibitions virtual tour of the caves.
