Articles on 71 localities are sorted into five chapters and arranged depending on the era of their
formation: Proterozoic, early Palaeozoic, late Palaeozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic. For each one of
the localities there is the description of the geological structure of the area, significant
geological phenomena and rocks as well as minerals or fossils of the area. The text information is
accompanied with colour photos and maps and short summary in English. All localities enlisted in
the book are easily accessible without restriction, only in few cases there are rules relating to
