Polish Jurassic Highland | Błędowska desert | 3 days | 200€

Polish Jurassic Highland (also known as the Polish Jura) consists of a hilly landscape with Jurassic limestone rocks, cliffs, valleys and vast limestone formations, featuring some 220 caves. The relief of the upland developed since the Paleogene, under climatic conditions changing considerably. Its main component is a peneplain, crowned by monadnocks, rocky masses that resisted erosion, generated as hard rock on Late Jurassic buildup surrounded by less resistant bedded limestone of the same age. The Polish Jura is visited by roughly 400,000 visitors a year. Part of it belongs to the Ojców National Park, the smallest of Poland’s twenty national parks, ranking among the most attractive recreational areas of the country.
The Błędowska Sands is Central Europe’s largest accumulation of loose sand in an area away from any sea, deposited thousands of years ago by a melting glacier. It occupies an area of 32 km2 (12 sq mi). The sands have an average depth of 40m, up to 70m at the maximum. The Biała Przemsza River divides the desert in two from east to west.
