Ojcow National Park

Ojcow National Park is Poland's smallest but one of the most attractive national parks. It's famous for its varied landscape and rich history. It attracts the visitors with its unique landscapes and rich wildlife but also cultural sites - two castles built in the 14. century.

The renaissance residence called Pieskowa Skala was built on a picturesque hill overlooking the scenic Pradnik river valley, among fanciful limestone rocks of extraordinary shapes.

The most famous rock in its environs is called “Hercules' Club”. The castle is part of the famous Polish “Eagle’s Nest Route”, a chain of medieval strongholds picturesquely located on the surrounding hills built in 14. century by King Casimir the Great.

The castle is one of the best preserved renaissance residences in Poland. It was converted into a museum illustrating the changes in the European art from Middle Ages to the 20. century.
 
The visit to Pieskowa Skala can be followed by a number of local attractions. You can start by taking a walk of the Ojcow National Park including a visit to one of still-operating local mills and sightseeing the ruins of Ojcow castle.
 
In turn, we recommend taking a short sightseeing tour of the 200-metre long King Lokietek Cave. Not only is it the longest cave in the Park but it is also populated by the most venomous spider living in Poland that, however, does not spin webs...
 
The Ojcow Natural Museum will be worth a visit too with its interesting educational offer. The multimedia presentations and a 3D film shown to visitors will approach the wildlife, geology and history of the Ojcow National Park in an intelligible but informative way.
 
A tour of the Ojcow National Park usually around 5-6 hours.
