OGLE - almost three decades of revolutionary discoveries

The Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE) started in April 1992, with the prime aim of solving the dark matter problem through observations of microlensing events.

I will review the most important OGLE discoveries that have a great impact on modern astrophysics
