Conference trip

Radon2019 Conference trip short description

We will start with the visit of the Royal castle of Křivoklát. Křivoklát to the West of Prague is one of the oldest and most important castles of the Czech kings and princes, with origins dating back to the 12th century.

The visit takes approx. 60 minutes. The first part of a day will be concluded by lunch.

In the second half of the day we will focus on the Paleozoic history of Barrandien.  Our tour will start in the new exposition of Musuem Beroun called „Geopark“. The rocks are divided according to their age into five basic groups - Upper Proterozoic, Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian and Devonian. The pride of the Geopark is the unique profile of the Barrandian Basin in Prague, i.e. the complete stratum of the sequence from the Lower Ordovician to the Middle Devonian. Our excursion will be closed in selected quarries and will be focused on collection of fossils, especially parts of trilobites, under experienced geologists’ guidance. We believe you will find yourself a beautiful gift from the Czech geological history.

Logistics:

We will travel by own bus, expected departure is between 7.30 and  8 a.m. (the departure meeting point will be specified later, but it is expected to be near the conference venue) and return to Prague is planned between around  6.30 p. m.

Recommendation:

Please, take layered clothing and comfortable sturdy shoes. The geological gavel is welcome (excursion organizers will have some). Lunch and refreshment will be provided by organizers.
