About
The former quarries at Wietrznia in Kielce are under reserve protection. It is the largest reserve in the city (almost 18 ha) and is named after Zbigniew Rubinowski. This place is called an open-air geological museum. The history of the old seas and lands has been recorded in the rocks located here. In order to help to understand it better, educational boards have been set up on the premises of the reserve. Therefore, it is worth taking a stroll through the area of Wietrznia, resting, relaxing in a pleasant environment, and at the same time immersing yourself in geological knowledge. While at Wietrznia, you should visit the Center of Geoeducation, with a multimedia exhibition describing the geological history of the area.

I took a walk there from the center (20-30 min). That was OK. Certainly it's for the nature buffs only and it's not very entertaining. That's all. I spent there some 30 minutes and went back quickly.

Not so large but beautiful geological park, where you can learn a lot of history of Earth. It is peaceful place where you can relax in nice sunny days and take a walk. Also you can meet there some interesting birds and insects. There is a route with info-tables (I think only in Polish), where you can read about interesting geological formations and nature around you. At the end of the park, there is the Geo-Education center placed.
I recommend to visit this nice natural park-
