Traces of prehistory

For decades, miners have been extracting coal from under the earth, building a huge mountain of it. Rocks and stones gained from the gulf of the mine carry tracks of prehistorical plants and animals.

Classes are conducted nearby on the slag heap of an ancient coal mine "PIAST". There under the eye of an experienced geologist the class participants can collect fossils of carboniferous plants (creaks, club mosses, ferns) which are even older than 300 million years. 

Worth mentioning is the fact that we have been organizing such workshops already for five years. So far however, they used to be organised exclusively for the special order for "Field Schools". Very positive opinions and the growing interest with these workshops caused that for the this year we have had decided to make our offer available also for schools, tourist offices and individual tourists.

The gallery of the earlier workshops can be found under this link.

Workshops will be organised every day in the period since March till November.

  • Cost of workshops amounts for 150 PLN with VAT and concerns a group of max. 50 persons.
  • Cost of workshops for individual tourists: min. 5 persons amounts to 10 PLN/persons, at the number of people below 5 - the price amounts to 50 PLN.
  • for groups larger than fifty persons you should agree on the course and cost of the workshops with the organiser. Please, book the dates in advance.

Duration of workshops about 2 hours.

The price contains: geological workshops, and visiting the World of Minerals exhibition.

Teaching lessons with a geologist are an additional attraction for groups:

  • duration about 30 min
  • price 50PLN  for the group up to 50 persons
  • the possibility of choosing  the subject of the lesson 

At the same time we are announcing that it is possible to connect the participation in workshops with touring the "coal mine", which the history of the Nowa Ruda mining (in ground part) and ancient machines as wel as mining tools (in part underground) are presented on.

You can also organize for your group, after an earlier order, a hot meal on the spot (dinners) or a bonfire picnic with sausages.
