OGRODZIENIEC CASTLE AND PARK

TRIP NO 2

CASTLE BOROUGHS: OGRODZIENIEC CASTLE - BIRÓW MOUNTAIN - ROCK CITY - MINIATURE PARK

Ogrodzieniec Castle- fortress embedded in the rock is the showcase of the 14th century castles that were built in the days of King Casimir the Great. Built on the top of the highest hill, it blends perfectly into Podzamcze 'rock city'. It is the most impressive Eagle's Nest at Kraków-Częstochowa Jura. Ruins of this castle belong to the largest and the most interesting Polish objects. In its heyday, the castle belonged to distinguished families and had the nickname "little Wawel". Not without a reason, such films as "Janosik", "Rycerz" or "Zemsta" by Andrzej Wajda were screened here.
