Today we were in Swietokrzyskie Mountains. It was my first time there. Swietokrzyskie Mountains are low. In spite of there were no spectacular views, I would like to show you also this part of Poland. We were at St.Mikolaj (547m), Agata (608m), highest Lysica (612m) and Lysa Gora (594m). Apart from mountains we saw also Saint Cross Monastery. In the crypt there is a mummified body of Jeremi Wisniowiecki duke and some friars - very interesting!
At this picture you can see the mountain rock rubble.
Thanks for visiting!

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Swietokrzyskie are a mountain range in central Poland, in the vicinity of the city of Kielce. The mountain range consists of a number of separate ranges, the highest of which is Łysogóry (lit. bald mountains). The two highest peaks are Łysica at 612 meters (2008 ft) and Łysa Góra at 593 meters (1946 ft). Together with the Jura Krakowsko-Częstochowska the mountains form a region called the Lesser Poland Upland (Wyżyna Małopolska). Their area is 1684 km² (650 mi²). Approximate location is 50°53′N 20°55′E / 50.883°N 20.917°E / 50.883; 20.917.
The Świętokrzyskie Mountains are one of the oldest mountain ranges in Europe. They were formed during the Caledonian orogeny of the Silurian period and then rejuvenated in the Hercynian orogeny of the Upper Carboniferous period.
The region was once on the southern coast of the ancient supercontinent of Laurasia. The oldest known evidence of tetrapods comes from 395-million-year old fossil footprints found in Zachełmie. The rocks were formed from a marine tidal flat or lagoon.
The mountains have also yielded the oldest evidence of Dinosauromorpha, pushing back the evolution of dinosaurs to small, four-legged animals living during the Early Triassic. The fossil footprints date to some 250 million years ago, only a couple of million years after the Permian–Triassic extinction event, during a time when the environment was still destabilized. Footprints of early bipedal dinosaurs known as Sphingopus, from 246 million years ago, were also found.
From the early Middle Ages the mountains were a place of extensive copper and iron mining. Later they were also a significant site of limestone and red sandstone extraction. At present, the center part of the mountains contains the Świętokrzyski National Park.
The name, Holy Cross Mountains, refers to a Christian relic from a nearby Benedictine monastery on Łysa Góra, said to be a small piece of wood from the Cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified.

Hi Maciej,

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the trees. The reflection of the late morning light on the sniw is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
