Without any exaggeration one can say that the Crimean Peninsula is one of the most beautiful areas in the world. We can speak about the geology of Crimea endlessly: from 1957, when a stationary training facility of MSU was opened in the Crimea, it became a major international center for geological and geophysical summer training camps, where our students undergo field geological training.

But Crimea is interesting not only in geological aspect: somebody called Crimea "the Earth in miniature". It is a land with rich biological diversity, rich history and very important place for Russian culture.

We organize a post-conference excursion to the the Karadag (Kara-Dag) paleovolcanic complex, one of the most beautiful and famous places not only of Crimea but, generally, of former USSR.


Excursion on Karadag will be 16.09.2010

Excusion cost 10-15 Euro (preliminary).
