Information

The place is situated on a road leading to L’viv and is definitely worth visiting. In no other part of  Poland can such an attraction be found as in Siedliska, located in the  Południoworoztoczański Landscape Park. Fossilized trees, which constitute a major tourist attraction, are 13-18 million years old. They have been put on display in the local museum, situated next to a charming Orthodox church. The collection includes over 500 hundred fossilized pieces of tress and consists of small fragments as well as huge, almost 0.5-ton exhibits. It is the largest collection of fossilized remains in Poland and one of the largest in Europe.

The project was co-financed by the EUROPEAN UNION - EUROPEAN REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT FUND under REGIONAL OPERATING PROGRAMME OF THE PROVINCE OF LUBELSKIE FOR 2007-2013© Zamość Town Office
