The Błędowska Desert

20 th May 2014

Błedowska Desert is the largest dune area in Poland and Central Europe. It occupies 32 km square. It is located here in Upper Silesia.

The Bledowska Sands is Central Europe's largest accumulation of loose sand in an area away from any sea, deposited thousands of years ago by a melting glacier.
During the Second World War, the area was used by the German Africa Korps for training and testing equipment before deployment in Africa.








It is not Africa it's Poland.
