Helpful small grass airfield which allowed us to park there while visiting my cousin in the nearby town. Asked us for a Eu 50 donation for landing and three nights hangarage.

The approach to the 710m grass runway 30 is over woods and a hangar. Fine in a glider with airbrakes but requiring some concentration in a spam-can. Anyway we were well clear of the obstacles and stopped in half the runway. The club had saved a hangar space for us.

We had two days of tourism in the town of Opole, a small place with interesting and attractive architecture, both medieval and communist, plus a fascinating outdoor museum of old wooden buildings.

There is an airfield, EPKN, nearby with a hard runway but it appears to be more of a car testing facility and would not accept us.
