The Pieskowa Skała Castle is located in the Ojców National Park, set in an old forest, on a limestone cliff over the Prądnik River Valley. Together with the magnificent rock formation Maczuga Herkulesa (Hercules’ Club) stands close nearby create some of the most iconic and unique views within Ojców National Park. It is one of the major tourist attractions of the Cracow area.

Its chambers, colonnades and courtyard reflect the style of the Italian Renaissance. The museum has a large collection of fine old furniture and interior decoration details. This well-preserved castle was most significantly updated in the 16th century when the original medieval tower was transformed into a beautiful two-level loggia (an arcaded open-air balcony) embellished with sgraffito wall decorations, a taller steepled tower with a large clock-face was added alongside it, and the courtyard was arcaded in north-Italian style.

Nowa Huta is a place filled with the atmosphere of Polish communism. Get familiar with those strange, but interesting times, when shelves in shops were almost empty and everything was under control of politics, who feed society with propaganda and fear. Have a unique chance to explore a typical worker‘s flat from the turn of 1960s.

The Niepołomice Royal Castle is located a few kilometers from the Nowa Huta district. It is a Gothic castle rebuilt in the late Renaissance style and called the second Wawel. It was initiated by King Kazimierz the Great in the 14th century and it soon became his favourite residence which he used as a retreat from the royal seat in Kraków. The castle’s heyday came during the rule of Władysław Jagiełło who held meetings of the royal council here, often entertaining foreign dignitaries and passing official court judgements from Niepołomice rather than Wawel. It was also from here that the famous royal hunts set out, bringing back the big game trophies of bison, bears and boars that would line the castle halls. In the mid-16th century King Zygmunt August rebuilt the residence on the model of contemporary Renaissance palaces – the appearance of which has been restored today.
