Częstochowa - different point of view


This entry of mine will be about Częstochowa region. But I would like to descibe it from different perspective than the one given in this blog in the entry from 22 September 2005.
So I would like to encourage to read everyone about the other picture of Częstochowa region:)

Physico -geographical outline of Częstochowa region

The region of Częstochowa occupies mainly the north-west part of the Silesia Cracow Uplands, which is surrounded from three sides by the Middle Poland lowlands and streches out to reach the little Poland eastwards.
Geographically, the region of Częstochowa lies within two tectonical units of the Alpine origin, predominantly in the Silesia Cracow monocline and, in the small eastern part, in the Nida basin.
The whole Mosezoic Sedimentary cover reclines on the strongly tectonically disturbed, folded and faulted Paleozoic substratum represented by Silesian, Devonian, Carboniferous, Permian deposits of the variscian orogenisis.

The Silesian-Cracow monocline constitutes here an asymmetric tectonic elevation, which slightly exceeds the altidude of 400 metres a.s.l. in the southern part.
The monocline consists of chronologically composed stratification of Mesozoic formations (the Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceaus periods) which slope down at the mean angle of 20.

to be continued soon:)
