A week ago we returned from a field trip which took place on 7-12 May. In the following days we had the opportunity to discover geology building of regions near two polish cities: Kraków and Opole. We went down to the Wieliczka mine, had a session of lectures in the Oil and Gas Institute (“Petroleum geology of the Polish Carpathians and their foredeep”), visited museum of Opole University (with interesting paleontological collection) and saw a lot of quarries and outcrops which showed us geological history of this beautiful region in Poland. We saw Devonian dolomites in Dubie quarry, Carboniferous sediments in Czerna outcrop, Permian laccolith in Zalas quarry, Triassic deposits in Krasiejów and Gogolin, Jurassic ammonites from Młynka quarry and Cretaceous limestones exploited in ‘’Odra’’ quarry in Opole. Those days allowed us to see how Poland was changing across the time and to meet other people whose love it as we. We would like to thank all participants, without whom this event cannot take place: students from universities from: Aberdeen (3), Bucharest (7), Cluj-Napoca (2), Iasi (2), Kiev (9), Opole (1), Sophia (1), Szeged (2) and Poznań (8), our supervisors George Ajdanlijsky, Relu Roban, Wojciech Stawikowski, Ivan Virshylo and our main guide from Opole University professor Adam Bodzioch for the opportunity to learn more about the geological past. We also would like to thank our financial supporters: Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, PGNiG GeoTalent for financial support and Eko-wiatr BIS company which provide us safety helmets.
