About
The quarries in Ślichowice exploited the lime raw material as early as the interwar period. During exploitation in the excavation, unique tectonic phenomena were discovered, and therefore, in 1949, a part of the discovery was protected as a monument to inanimate nature. The high scientific and didactic value of the discovery meant that on 18 June 1952 a strict nature reserve was established - the Jan Czarnocki rock reserve. The reserve protection included a rock perch separating the former excavations with an area of 0.55 ha. In order to better explore the quarries, Geopark Kielce has prepared paths where didactic boards have been placed, which are a source of knowledge about the facility.

Neglected reserve
Aug 2020 • Family
Nicely located reserve after the former quarry, nice paths, great views, a lot of parking. Unfortunately, the place is heavily devastated and neglected, full of rubbish, thistles and bushes. It is a shame because the place itself is nice.

for a sunny sunday afternoon
Apr 2016 • Business
I made the roundwalk around a quarry on a spring sunday afternoon. A lot of locals were out and about, some of them enjoying beers with family and friends on the benches.
The geological value of this place, and in particular the fold that can be seen is impressive.
And the bushes were in bloom, so it was good place to be.
The only thing that annoyed me here is the empty and some of them broken beer bottles everywere.
If people would just take their waste home or at least leave it at a wastebin, it would be so much more enjoyable for everyone.

Surprising geologic reservation
May 2013 • Solo
Extremely surprising place in the middle of a housing estate. It is wonderful small geological reservation, where you can see nice examples of tectonic changes in the history of Earth. This place was originally a mine. At bottom of the mine there is small lake (I do not recommend to try to swim :o) ) and you can come down by stairs. It is very interesting view of the mine from the bottom. There are also info-tables both in Polish and in English. I recommend to visit this place, even though it is not near the center of the city.
